If it's not fantasy, post-apocalyptic or sci-fi, the next logical setting for a video game would be (you guessed it) anything Steampunki-ish. Hm, come to think of it, not many games these days use that particular theme. Well, in this case, it's Steampunk meets the American Civil War era. Codemasters put money into the idea, backing up the folks at development studio Blue Omega Entertainment. One small thing should be said right at the beginning. Damnation was originally created as a mod for Unreal Tournament 2004. Seeing some potential in it, the devs put some effort into getting the retail version done.
