Barcelona, Spain, September 15th 2021: Award-winning Indie game developer and publisher Cubus Games is proud to announce September 30th as the worldwide release date for Steam Highwayman: Smog & Ambuscade, a rich and compelling choose-you-own-adventure narrative developed and published exclusively for iOS® and Android™ compatible devices. Set in a rich steampunk-inspired environment covering part of an alternate 19th century England, you are challenged to embark on a wonderful journey in a mysterious world dominated by the Guilds. 

Game Trailer:

You close the regulator and bring the heavy Ferguson velosteam to a halt. From the crest of the hill, you can see the lumbering freight wagons and the steam carriages of the gentry making their way through the rain-lashed night. Little do they expect the sudden and terrible assault of the Steam Highwayman…

Steam Highwayman is a content-rich interactive game full of unexpected surprises and adventure! Your protagonist character will shape and define his destiny through a series of choices affecting the outcome of the story; Will you play a frustrated pauper? A common thief and wanderer? A traitorous veteran or perhaps a dispossessed noble? The choice is yours and more than 1,000 passages of exploration await the daring and bold. Written by Martin Noutch with complementary music and sound by Ramon Sole, Steam Highwayman on mobile is inspired by the series of popular open-world role-playing gamebooks. You can track your adventure through an England that never was, discovering secrets, solving quests, rescuing those in need and punishing those who deserve vengeance!

Steam Highwayman offers character management and mini games to play; face and overcome your opponents to open new paths of exploration with endless possibilities! What will you do next? A midnight assault on the nobles travelling the Bath Road? Will you rescue the Wethered Brewery from closure or punish the wicked Colonel Snappet? Will you ally with the Compact for Workers’ Equality or find work protecting hauliers on the Wycombe run? Is trading cargo on the Thames more than a profitable sideline? Can you make your way to the glamorous Cliveden Ball or win the Spenser Cup?

Steam Highwayman features the best of historical fiction wrapped in a digital gamebook suitable to players of all ages and experience levels. Priced at only EUR 4.49, the download is a must-have item for your collection. Narrative support includes English, Catalan and Spanish. Check out the official website here:
