It's been a month since Clockwork Empires went into Early Access via Steam, and now we're getting our first of many monthly updates, dubbed "Conscript Steelcog versus THE MURDERCULT" by the developers. In Clockwork Empires you take on the role of a junior bureaucrat in a fledgling colony in the new world. Your job is to order the colonists around to ensure they stay alive (cabbage crops good. Invading fish-people bad), keep them busy so they don't join a cult (As they say, idle hands are the elder squid god's playground) and most importantly, bring glory to the Queen and her empire (and most most importanly, earn enough prestige to get a promotion).
Here's a brief overview of things to expect in the latest patch:
