From the announcement:
The Sky People in the World Above have finally depleted their legendary stores of power, forcing them to come to the Borderlands. But they need the help of your Borderlanders if they wish to siphon the Fire Beneath into their floating cities. You and your fellow tribes must barter, bribe, and compete to be the first to raise the skyworks and reap the bounty of the Sky People’s favor. Gearworld: The Borderlands is now available at your local retailer and on our webstore!
Set in a steampunk apocalyptic future, Gearworld: The Borderlands puts you and your fellow players in charge of a few ramshackle tribes, fighting for whatever resources they can mine or gather in a destroyed world. Each round, players must try to scavenge a variety of resources, ranging from coal and gold, to horses and vital scraps. As the players collect more resources, their tribes become stronger, and are able to move closer to the ultimate goal of skywork construction.
