Clockwork Revolution is a “love child” of Vampire the Masquerade and Arcanum, according to game director Chad Moore.
“With deep world building, compelling narrative, crunchy RPG systems, engaging gameplay, and massive reactivity, I’ve always described Clockwork Revolution as the love child of Arcanum and Vampire: The Masquerade,” Moore tweeted this week.
“The project is led by game director Chad Moore and principal designer Jason Anderson, who just happen to have created one of the greatest steampunk RPGs of all time—Arcanum,” InXile studio head Brian Fargo told Xbox Wire when the game was announced.
“Clockwork Revolution takes place in the vibrant Victorian-era metropolis of Avalon, where steam trains fly overhead, wealthy industrialists replace their limbs with ornate clockwork prosthetics, and mechanical servants fulfill their masters’ every whim.
“But this new age of wonders holds a dark secret—it’s been carefully constructed by the ruthless Lady Ironwood. Through use of a time travel device, she’s changed key moments in Avalon’s history, keeping the working class struggling in the slums and factories, while bringing herself immense wealth and power.

“Discovering Ironwood’s scheme, you’ll use a wondrous device known as the Chronometer to travel back in time, choose how to influence the past, and then return to the present to experience the effects of your decisions.”
