Nearly two years after Dream Engines: Nomad Cities was originally announced, its Steam Early Access release is a month out and its temporary demo is out now. The demo, which is available until February 9th at 10 AM PST, includes 1.5 hours of content for players. In the demo, players will be guided through the game's mechanics through two pre-generated maps.
In the game, players will be able to design a flying city as they try to survive in a world overrun by the Dream Plagues. The only survivors are small nomadic tribes that don't attract much attention, so of course a flying city is the correct answer to staying safe and hidden, am I right? Very stealthy.
Players will design their city and manage production lines when resources are harder to find. If the city is under attack and things become much more dicey, you can literally fly away. Not just you, but your entire city, which is a pretty amusing idea. A balance will have to be struck in expanding the city and building infrastructure that can be abandoned when you fly away. In fact, if the city is too heavy and your fuel supply is too low, you might be stuck on the ground at the wrong time.
If you like what you see and you're down to build your dream engine in a nomad city, check out the temporary Steam demo here. The Steam Early Access release next month, but if you've chewed through the demo and you want more, you can head on over to the game's website and purchase both the game and access to the Alpha that is currently available. Supplies are limited (there are only 56 copies remaining for the cheapest $29.99 version at the time of publishing) so you should move quickly if you're interested.
