HG: One can’t help feel a bit like a frontiersman when they boot up an early access game. Along with the promise of new discovery, early adopters are faced with threats from all sides. Not threats on their lives, mind you (unless they're epileptic I suppose), but threats of wasted time. Crashes, bugs, and even the updates designed to fix them can all wipe away precious progress. That in mind, it was with trepidation that I stepped into the world of Clockwork Empires.
