The year is 1865. Advances in
steam technology have set this
world on a different course from that
which you know. Here the divider
between history and literature has
also been blurred; the heroes of war
and the heroes from books are one
and the same.
It falls to you now to take command
of an elite unit made up of these
heroes, utilizing the latest in steam
technology and guiding your forces
in battle against an alien menace
that threatens the entire world.

In Campaign mode, you'll follow the
story of Henry Fleming and the
agents of S.T.E.A.M. as they fight to
repel the alien invasion of Earth.
Maps and Missions
The campaign is divided into 16
missions, each of which comprises
one or more maps. On each map,
you will need to complete an
obj ective (e.g., "reach the goal") to
move on to the next map or
complete the mission. Between
maps, your agents will be healed of
all damage and you will have the
opportunity to re-equip and/or swap
in different agents.
Once you complete a mission, you
will receive a score in medals. Your
squad will receive promotions and
unlock additional equipment based
on your cumulative score.

Weapons and Equipment

will require a variety of weapons and
equipment. Choosing the right tool
for the j ob can be the difference
between success and failure!

Wars aren't fought by equipment;
they're fought by soldiers. Each
member of S.T.E.A.M. is a uniquely
talented individual, ready to do his
or her part against the alien menace.
Main Weapon
In terms of gameplay, the biggest
difference between agents comes
from their main weapons. These
range from the straightforwardly
powerful Eagle Rifle to the areawide healing ability of the MediMortar.
Each character also has a special
that can be used once per map. Not
all of these are attacks, but all are
very powerful. Use them well.
Every agent has an ability that
grants either a bonus or an extra
capability. A few characters have
abilities that give a bonus to the
entire squad. These are called Team
Lastly, agents vary in their maximum
health and their weight class. The
former dictates how much damage
agents can take before being
defeated. The latter determines
what kinds of boilers they can wear.
Tips & Tricks
Wooden Crates and
Metal Boxes
Crates labeled "S.T.E.A.M." contain
medical kits, extra steam tanks, or
other helpful items. Most damagecausing weapons can break open
these crates, as can an agent with
the Break ability.
Metal boxes will contain medals.
Only certain weapons can break
them open.
Restoring and Reviving
You can spend medals at save
points to restore the health and
steam of your agents. You can even
revive agents that have fallen!
Weak Points
Most enemy aliens have a weak spot
somewhere on their bodies. Examine
your foes carefully and try attacking
from various angles to see if you
can find these weaknesses.
Tanks and Cannons
Occasionally you will find a
stationary steam cannon or a tank
vehicle on the field. These operate

for multiplayer battles and customize

and characters.
