Free of Charge - City of Steam
Jonathan and Randolph don their steampunk gear and smoking pipes as they head into the city state of Nexus in this free-to-play action RPG.

Browser based games are certainly improving of late, but they are still a long way off the experience a traditional game will give you.
Its kind of a sneaky niche as well, it seems to me developers would rather developer much cheaper browser games with half the content and depth, but with more sneaky ways of emptying your wallet, relying on easy click impulse sales. They know people will pay once they are hooked on the often trivial but addictive game play.
Instead of watching the video I just went and played it, very impressive for a browser based game so far. Good work.
Cool, I remember reading an article about this game on another site. Looks quite decent, I'll check this one out too. Keep up the good work Randolph and Jonathan.
Just a heads up: the CoS devs told us after the show last Tuesday that the Electrum-paid potions are disabled in PvP, but are bugged at the moment. The devs are fixing it as we speak.
@k2theswiss what a damn mess
