Dear fans and friends of City of Steam,
Having given CoS a good run and fighting chance, we were faced with the tough decision of whether to close it down due to a chronic lack of players. This wasn’t an easy decision for us to make – when we first found the game, we fell in love with the world, the lore, and the openness of the developers. We had big plans and even bigger hopes for City of Steam, and firmly believed it would realize its potential and rocket to the forefront of browser gaming.
But the problem lies with the most important factor: players. Most newcomers simply stop playing after a short while, and the loyal few of you that do stick around are unfortunately not enough to sustain the game. Coupled with a lack of new content, the game is running out of steam fast.
So it is with a heavy heart that we’ve decided to let City of Steam go and close it down.
Nonetheless! There were still plenty of great times we all enjoyed together! Remember the hilarious POWER Steam video? Or how about that Dev Humiliation with FemGab and AndrewYunk? And of course, the retrospect into the “original” City of Steam games, CoS Quests I to IV! That laughter and joy we felt is something we will always have.
City of Steam will still always hold a special place in our hearts for being the unique, ambitious project that it is. We hope you’ve enjoyed the railhauler ride while it lasted!
