From the announcement:
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Planet Steam, a board game of production and commerce in a steam-powered future!
In Planet Steam, two to five players take the roles of entrepreneurs in a steampunk boomtown, racing to assemble equipment, claim plots of land, extract resources, and accumulate riches. After harvesting resources using tanks and converters, players must buy and sell their newfound materials in a volatile and ever-shifting market. The one who earns the most income will, in the end, be victorious. However, only through shrewd resource management and clever manipulation of supply and demand can any player reign supreme!
