#Gamious today announced that Turmoil, its tongue-in-cheek #oilboom #simulator, is now available on Steam. Turmoil, a simulation game set during the 19th century oil rush in North America, spent a year spent in Early Access and received numerous content updates. As of today the game is finally available for everyone at $9.99/€9,99/£6,99, with a week-long launch discount of 10%.

The Linux release:

“We don’t have Linux planned for release, but intend to do Linux shortly after.”

Check out the new launch trailer for Turmoil here:

Turmoil has come a long way since we first made it available through Early Access,” said Jos Bouman, Creative Director of Gamious. “It has become a deeper and richer game through each of its player-feedback-inspired updates, and I dare say we would not have been able to do this just by ourselves. We look forward to developing and fine-tuning more of our games with the help of our fantastic fan base.”

Turmoil is a simulation game set during the 19th century oil rush in North America, in which players earn money by prospecting for oil and setting up efficient pipe networks to excavate the oil. As the mining seasons float by, the town goes through different stages of growth, and new upgrades as well as alluring new territories with oil-rich grounds become available. When players become wealthy enough they can even acquire town shares in a bid to beat out competitors to become the town’s next mayor.

Turmoil offers a rich single player campaign featuring dozens of upgrades and new technology to improve mining operations, as well as colourful characters that bring the game’s world to life with their welcoming and helpful chit-chat. The game also features Steam Achievements, Badges, Trading Cards and Cloud Saving.

While Turmoil is now available on Steam for everyone at $9.99/€9,99/£6,99 with 10% discount, plus a Linux release is certainly on the way. So stay tuned.

Dutch game studio Gamious #announced today that its visually charming, #humorous take on the simulation #genre, Turmoil, will be released for PC on Steam on June 2nd after a year in Early Access. Drawing inspiration from the historic 19th century oil rush in North America, Turmoil received a total of 23 updates based on community feedback while in Early Access and garnered a 90% approval rating from Steam users. Now the full game comes to PC on Steam for $9,99/€9,99/£6,99.

“We are extremely grateful to the players who played Turmoil and provided feedback to make the game even better throughout Early Access,” said Jos Bouman, Creative Director of Gamious. “The community not only motivated us with their incredible enthusiasm, but also inspired our team to come up with big improvements every other week. We know that thanks to this collaboration we have something truly entertaining to offer that players will love.”

Turmoil is a simulation game set during the 19th century oil rush in North America. By prospecting for oil, players earn money and then as towns grow up around them they can acquire town shares in a bid to beat out competitors to become mayor. Since launching on Steam Early Access a year ago Turmoil has evolved and grown well beyond its originally anticipated scope thanks to community feedback and enthusiasm. A larger campaign and gameplay additions such as the natural gas mechanics and stock auction have been added to the final version to offer players a more robust and humorous simulation experience.

What about a Linux release?

“We don’t have Linux planned for release, but intend to do Linux shortly after. The game was made by one programmer in GameMaker. So we’re stretched kinda thin right now trying to get the game out.”

No release date has been issued until the impending launch from Early Access on June 2nd. Stay tuned for more details.
