Enter the world of Steel Empire…
Travel back in time to an alternate history made of steam-powered airships, military fanfare, oppressive regimes and rebellion.
The Motorhead Empire is the supreme authority over most of the world– ruthlessly ruling over its subjects and enslaving most of the population. Few have found refuge under the Republic of Silverhead, the one area free from the dictatorship of the Motorhead. Immerse yourself in the steampunk alternate 19th century and play as the Silverhead’s elite air force to lead the rebellion against the tyranny of the all powerful Motorhead Steel Empire.
FIGHT TO SAVE THE REPUBLIC OF SILVERHEAD?
OR SUBMIT TO THE MOTORHEAD EMPIRE’S TYRANNY?
THE FATE OF THE WORLD DEPENDS ON YOU.
