English commercial launch of Neo Steam
their subscription-free MMORPG that combines steampunk sensibilities with anime
art direction set in "an alternate reality where electricity was never invented"
(thank goodness someone at least had the wherewithal to "invent" steam). Here's
a bit from the
: "NeoSteam is set in an impressive, cool 3D fantasy
world full of challenging quests and thrilling PvP-battles. Players enter an
alternate reality where electricity was never invented - everything is instead
powered by NeoSteam. Alas, the supply of NeoSteam is finite, dragging the two
major powers to an inevitable war. Battles rage between the Elerd Kingdom and
Republic of Rogwel over Rope Isle – the last available source of NeoSteam."
