I'm a fan of William Attia and this appears to be his first serious big box game since Caylus.

Who do I give my money to?!

Re: Attia's first serious same since Caylus

Worker placement
Theme: Steampunk, in a britishlike world the players build factories and produce Spyrium.
This material is manufactured and gives you.....victory points.
Little cash for buying, tough decisions.....

Sorry thats all the information I have. Ystari mag, and other french sites don´t say more.

The game may be in production in the first trimester, but nothing is clear.


players: 2-5
playtime: 90 min. aprox.
age: 12 +

Steampunk zombie reminds me of Deadlands.

Also looking forward to this.

At least it's not medieval!

Wait, time travelling medieval zombie workers . . . in a alternate steampunk reality . . .

Mechanically this game seems very intriguing, but being Norwegian, I do have a problem with the name. In Norwegian "spy" means puke...

I know what you mean. I always approach the genre with extreme caution. To be fair, it's a genre that I would like to like - I'm a fan of the kind of novels that have inspired the genre, HG Wells, Jules Verne, etc... But it's just that the modern imaginings of steampunk are... well, just so bad!

I'm keeping an open mind about the game itself, of course, and I'd like it to be great. I really, really would like to see something that's steampunk-themed that I actually like! (I have a classified project bubbling away in the background myself, but more of that much later!)

My first thought was this was a spy game. Interesting title, I wonder what prompted the name Spyrium for the rare material?

I am looking forward to finding out more about this one.

The title needed an "S" and a "Y" to indicate an Ystari game, and they decided it was time to go away from obvious and placed a "P" in between. whistle

As far as pop culture is concerned, steampunk is older than zombie (granted, by only about two years). Like clothes from the 80s, all the fads come back in [new] waves.

Probably because it's one of those themes that has a strong tendency towards feeling 'tacked on'. It's very easy to take your normal standard game and go 'Lets add some cogs and call it steampunk!'.

It's much proffered when it's more of a 'This game feels like it would be perfect in a Victorian era, but the technology isn't quite right so we need to make it a bit more advanced than that...Oh, we ended up with steampunk, well that's a bonus '. It's nice when it feels like it was almost accidental that they ended up with it being steampunk is all ^^.

I do worry that too many games will try to adopt it and it will die off though, as I do love Steampunk things and hope they stick around. Though I'd be perfectly happy for it to be replaced with other retro-futuristic styles

Nah zombie films go way back since the 30's. unless you want to include Flash Gordon as proto steam punk, zombies trump steam punk. Besides, punk left steam a long time ago; if it ever was a part of it in the first place.

Jules Verne and H.G. Wells were writing steampunk long before then even if it did not have that moniker. But if we just want to consider films, Fritz Lang's Metropolis was released in 1927, which was the reason for my "granted, by only about two years" parenthetic.
