A good friend and screenwriter has gone and done something incredible and very soon he’s going to ask all of us to be a part of it by pitching in on Kickstarter to get it off the ground.
In 1861, the first shot is fired in the American Civil War. Northern and southern forces began to clash in what has become the bloodiest conflict in American history.
After four long years of war the conflict would have to its natural conclusion … if not for the advent of steam technology.
Steam power: a technological wonder that forever alters the course of this terrible conflict. Within a decode of its invention, steam technology is adapted into every facet of American life, on both sides of the war.
What was supposed to be a brief placeholder for future electric and oil-based technology has now become the standard for how the world turns.
History marches on.
Slavery is abolished, infrastructure is created, innovation gives birth to the skyscraper and the airship.
The year is now 1925.
Yet the war continues and the nation remains divided, the Union under the direct control of the President, and the Confederacy ruled by a conglomerate of military generals. Both sides have come to a near stalemate.
The North controls the skies but rumors persist of a new Southern weapon, something that will turn the tide forever in their favor. In response, the North sends its greatest inventor, Joseph Eversteene, to Oregon to begin work a counter-weapon…
This is definitely one of the coolest things that a friend won’t let me be a part of at the moment.
