What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Age of Grit is nearing completion and is now at the point where the game needs input from real life players! Steam Early Access is the best way to get AOG in the hands of as many RPG junkies as possible. As we release new content you'll be able to easily continue your progress where you left off--all your progress and loot will be saved and the Jobs Log will remind you exactly where you left off.

We hope you'll have fun exploring the game world, getting to know The West's characters, going on adventures, and blowing stuff up! You'll also play a critical role part of Age of Grit's development--give us precious feedback and help leave your mark on the game.

Of course, if you'd rather wait until the final release that's cool too--just hit that wishlist button and you'll be notified when Age of Grit is complete!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Game dev is about as predicable as a bunch of monkeys playing poker on top of a roulette wheel. That being said we feel confident the full version of the game will be ready by Q4 2020.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have considerably more content--more jobs, more ship upgrades, many more towns to visit, more NPCs, more story content etc.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently Age of Grit is in beta. Most of the main features are complete and several hours of playable content is in place. At this stage the game is limited to one section of the world map--a single faction of the game's world.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?


How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We need your help! We want to make Age of Grit as good as it can be. We need your honest feedback and suggestions! We hope to build a fun and positive community around Age of Grit and to include players in the game dev process as much as possible. Head over to our Steam community and say hello!”

“Age of Grit isn't afraid to have its cake and build a mighty machine of gears and steam to eat it too.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Age of Grit looks like a perfect example of a science fiction/steam punk hybrid that might intrigue those who are fans of Firefly or Cowboy Bebop.”
The Koalition

“Age of Grit folows the struggles and adventures of a lone airship owned and controlled by the player...It also seeks to create the unlikely amalgam of steampunk and cowboys, inspired mostly by science fiction smugglers and gritty traders.”

About This Game

In Age of Grit you play the captain of an old, beat-up, steam-powered airship. You and your crew adventure across a vast, cowboy-themed, steampunk world simply known as "The West." You're looking for whatever work you can find--bounty hunting, smuggling contraband, running guns...maybe even a little train robbery if yer so inclined. 'Bout anything to pay the bills, keep the guns loaded, the boiler stoked, and keep your ship in the sky!

Travel from one Wild West town to the next, meeting interesting characters. A few might have a job to offer or cargo for you to haul. Others might be fixin' to just shoot you where you stand. At its core, Age of Grit is about the people you meet, what story they have to tell, and how you choose to interact with them.

When trouble comes, you'll battle enemy airships using a deeply strategic, turn-based combat system. Far from a button masher, AOG will require careful thought to achieve each victory. A heavy cannon might do well against a slow moving, heavily armored enemy, but perhaps a long-gun will be more effective when gunning down a more agile opponent. A machine gun might be powerful at first, but as the barrel overheats it's effectiveness will diminish. With clever strategy, a weaker ship can typically bring down a much stronger foe.

You can buy better machinery from one of The West's many shops and dealers, or you might be able to salvage better parts from the wreckage of a vanquished enemy's ship. As you improve your airship you’ll be able to take on bigger and more powerful foes and, in so doing, spread your fame across The West!
