I did, and it doesn't seem to be from the creators of prison architect. It also seems like it's a steampunk dystopian near future, which is a big plus.  :csa:

As opposed to just a steampunk dystopian future.  :roddy:

Here is an article I didn't read that explains if something can be both steampunk and dystopian.

Here is a thought provoking comment from the comment section of the previously posted article.

If Victorian Britain had really had the sort of technology imagined in steampunk - the future could be extremely different. Though if the technology was leaking to the other nations, things might not change too drastically. But let's assume that Britain is the only country with advanced technology at the turn of the last century.

WWI may never have happened - Britain could have dominated the world with their computers, advanced flying machines, etc. Then again, if WWI never happened, Britain might have imploded from the pressure put on by the suffragettes, the Irish Home Rule group, and the labor unions. In fact advanced technology might create a smarter populace, which might have led women to want to vote earlier. The technology probably wouldn't reduce the amount of labor needed - since Victorian machines often need laborers - so that might create even more labor unions. However, with the technology, Britain could have smashed Ireland and simply not bothered to deal with Home Rule.

Hmm....so many possibilities. Would Britain implode and create a future world without its influence? Or would it grow into a superpower - stoppable by no one?

The possible dystopias that could be created from this are mind boggling.

well everything I've heard about it makes it seem like a game that I, JC, would like. But I haven't purchased it. Just so you know.

I'll get some stick for this, but TBH I found the last Deus Ex game I played, Human Revolution... boring and unchallenging.

Also does anyone else find preloading games on steam to be completely pointless. Every time I do it takes longer to finish downloading that last 5% to unlock the game than it does to just re-download the entire game again.

Yeah, with my current internet speed, preloading is not worth it
