Yes, Mac users are people too. City of Steam runs on Mac OS and Windows OS.

- WILL THERE BE MONSTERS?
Monsters can be found and battled in dungeons and for quests. Some monsters in City of Steam have special skills. More details are listed on the Beastiary page which will be updated as further creatures are created.
- IS CITY OF STEAM TRUN-BASED OR REAL TIME-BASED?
Basically we were aiming for a turn-based combat system in the past but it turned out to be boring and annoying so we’ve been converting it to a real time action RPG style. The cast timers are there because this is a web-browser game and complications with client/server communication require this slower paced format. We do think that the cool-down timer just guarantees a perfect balance between real-time and strategy.
- IS THERE ARE LEVEL REQUIREMENT FOR CHALLENGING CERTAIN BOSSES?
No, but there are level recommendations when entering specific dungeons. If you choose to ignore our warnings, be prepared.
- IS THERE A PVP SYSTEM IS CITY OF STEAM?
There is a PVP system but it is optional. You may challenge anyone but they have the choice to reject or accept the duel. Every suburb will have its own special PVP arena. We will probably put different conditions or different events in these arenas, to keep players on edge and make different challenges in each.
- I CAN'T DOWNLAD THE CLIENT. HOW DO I INSTALL THE GAME?
Seriously? It’s a browser based game. Play it through Firefox, Chrome, Safari, even Internet Explorer if you are so inclined. Just click “Play Now”.
