Turmoil 40% OFF - Daily Deal

We're proud to be Steam's Daily Deal and offer 40% off the regular price for the first time!

We just updated the game last week to add more replayability in the Single Level game mode. And we are currently working on a localization update adding Russian, Chinese, Brazilian-Portuguese and Polish. Maybe Korean too if we can manage with the character set.

Update #34 - Replay Bonus Island

Hi all,

So, as promised, here is the first of two updates: Replay Bonus Island. After this we will work on a localization update and try to bring you that ASAP.

The big difference that today’s update brings is that you get control over how you play Single Levels. And that will make it more FUN! We’ve added sliders in the Area select screen that correspond with the Seed number. You will be able to determine how much Oil, Gas and Rock are in a level.



We have also added a new area: the Bonus Island! The island will have MAX Oil, Gas and Rock as that is the way it should be played. It is unlocked when you win the campaign. This brings re-playability of the Bonus Island to you for the first time! And we’re quite happy with that.

The Seed number is now a bit longer: 10 digits. This was necessary to incorporate the added custom variables. You can still copy this number and the Area and send it to a friend to have them play the exact same level.

Good luck and have fun!

  • Improved Single Level game mode.

About This Game

Turmoil offers players a visually charming, tongue-in-cheek take on the simulation genre inspired by the 19th century oil rush in North America. Get a taste of the rush and rivalry of the time as you earn your way to become a successful oil entrepreneur. As you make money digging up and selling oil, the town will grow along with you.

Lease land at the town auction and search for oil. Build a rig, create an efficient pipe network and bring up the oil to store it in silos. Sell the oil at the best times to maximize profits. Then buy essential upgrades in town to cope with rock, gas and ice. Acquire more town shares than your competitors in a bid to become the new mayor.

  • A campaign where you build your rags-to-riches oil baron career and beat your rivals.
  • Dozens of upgrades and new tools to improve your oil mining operations.
  • Meet the town’s characters in the saloon and make shady business deals.
  • Play single game mode to get one of literally millions of procedurally generated levels and earn as much as you can in one year.
  • Steam Achievements, Badges, Trading Cards and Cloud Saving.
  • Lease land at the town auction and search for oil using a dowser, mole or scanner.
  • Maximize your profits by using natural gas to boost the oil price.
  • Outbid your competitors at the stock auction.
