Hello all

So we got a lot of great press coverage and response to the Kickstarter launch for Full Steam Ahead. Mostly people were excited. Unfortunately a large number of the comments were also about being rather confused by what were we actually going to be doing with Full Steam Ahead.

We paid attention and went furiously about creating an update for the Kickstarter to make clearer our goals.So we have added a new “talking heads” video, explaining our intentions.

We explain why Full Steam Ahead will be an up-to-date, relevant sequel to the original hit.

 Firstly we introduce to some of the memebers of the team! 

We’ve also added some original game play footage to show off the ideas behind the game as well as the transition of the orginal game from 1920’s ships into the new steampunk setting of Full Steam Ahead and what’s more… we mention tea!

As always thoughts and comments are welcome.....now go forth and let the world know!!
