'Dream Engines: Nomad Cities' Gets Steam And Epic Games Store Early Access Date - Trailer

Dream Engines: Nomad Cities is a survival city-building game with flying cities.

For all their powerful technology, the Ancients couldn't stop the Dream Plagues from overrunning and destroying their cities. Thus, surviving tribes like yours had to come up with a different, more pragmatic approach: if you can't beat them… get on your flying city and flee!

Dream Engines: Nomad Cities brings a unique twist to the genre: once you deplete a location from its resources or your enemies are getting too dangerous, you can lift your whole city off and leave to find new areas for your tribe to thrive.

Explore with your steambot Tiny in a nightmare-infested land while gathering scraps, searching for resources to exploit, and investigating the mysterious ruins of the Ancients.

Fight the Dream Plagues in hand-to-hand or ranged combat. Gather resources to grow your city, automate production lines, research new technologies, and upgrade your buildings. Defend your flying city to survive in a wacky post-apocalyptic world full of strange science and wild dreams. Design your city keeping in mind what is and isn't essential: when you run out of resources or the Dream Plagues grow too dangerous, you'll be forced to lift off and fly away in search of a better place, and to leave behind anything that you can’t carry with you.

Start your engines and prepare to take off -- Dream Engines: Nomad Cities is flying off to Early Access on July 14th on Steam and Epic Games Store for $29.99/€29.99, with a release discount of -10%!

This survival city-building game puts you in charge of a flying city in a wacky post-apocalyptic world. As its leader, you'll control a Steambot named Tiny as you explore and search for resources in nightmare-infested wildernesses and design an automated production system to help your city grow and take care of your people's needs. You'll research new technologies, craft new equipment, and build massive fortifications in a never-ending battle for survival.

Your city's defenses, with Tiny’s assistance, will protect it from constant attacks from the Dream Plagues, but you need to be prepared, you won't be able to hold them off forever as their forces grow stronger and stronger. Luckily for your people, when they become too much to handle, you'll take wings and fly your city somewhere safe, taking with you whatever buildings and resources that you can, and choosing which will have to be left behind.

Key Features:

  • Build an industrious flying city. Design automated production lines in the most efficient way to make the most of your time and limited space before you are overrun.
  • Find and exploit scarce resources across different biomes. Every biome has different resources, challenges, and opportunities.
  • Explore the world with a customizable Steambot and discover ancient mysteries. Fight in real-time action with your customizable steambot Tiny
  • Research, craft, and upgrade your infrastructure. Research new structures, craft more advanced gear, and spend infrastructure points to best suit your play style.
  • Balance between expensive expansion and disposable buildings to be left behind. Manage your fuel and weight carefully – you can't take everything with you! 
  • Defend your city against the Dream Plagues. The longer you stay in the same area the stronger they get, until they grow so strong and numerous that no one can withstand their assault.
  • Survive until the last moment - then fly off and begin anew in a new area and a different biome… but hit the ground running with all the structures you brought with you!

Dream Engines: Nomad Cities is coming to Steam Early Access & Epic Games Store on July 14, 2021, scheduled for full launch in 2022/2023.
