Martin Wallace released Age of Industry at the 2010 UK Games Expo the first weekend in June, with preorders shipping to customers at the same time, but for those who missed their chance at the limited edition from Wallace's Treefrog Games, U.S. publisher Mayfair Games will be distributing Age of Industry, with July 2010 being the scheduled ship date, according to Alliance Game Distributors. Here's a game description from the publisher:
Rooted in the 19th Century during the Industrial Revolution, a time when traditional craftsman were rapidly replaced with steam-powered machines, players in this streamlined version of Martin Wallace's Brass portray tycoons seeking to build their empires through the strategic investment in the production of raw materials, the manufacturing of goods, and the transportation networks needed to connect them. The six major industries primed for development are cotton mills, factories, coal mines, iron works, ports, and ships, with the option to develop a railway system to bridge regional markets and transport your goods.
