lightyears is a strategy game with steampunk elements. You are the
ruler of a new city on an alien planet and you have to provide it with
energy to let it advance. To achieve this you have to construct "Steam
Makers" and connect them through pipes and nodes.
Ensuring a stable and plentiful steam supply will let you upgrade your
city. This will result in additional "work units" which will allow you
to do a higher amount of simultaneous construction work. Other than
constructing "Steam Makers", nodes and pipes, you can also upgrade
those to increase their efficiency.
To make your task more difficult there are atural phenomenons that may
harm part of your network, in which case you will have to repair it in
hurry before the city loses too much energy. You’ll also have to face
enemy alien ships, of increasing power as the game advances, which will
attempt to destroy your infraestructures.
