Description: Phinnegan’s Factory is set in an original universe, The Sky-High City of Steampuff – first created by Steelehouse. We are a small studio of artists, animators and gamers working in Tulsa, OK and we’ve been making content for other folks for the last 17 years. For a very long time, we’d wanted to make an animated series – in 2012, we did. We created the Sky-High City of Steampuff and in doing so, created a lot of artwork and lore. When we decided to make our first game, we knew our universe and its unique aesthetic would be a fantastic VR experience – so Phinnegan’s Factory was born.
Review: I feel the key to enjoying ‘Steampuff: Phinnegan’s Factor’ is to remember the price you are paying for it. The game itself is a static positional first-personal shooter with a nice Steampunk style to it and if there is one thing I can’t take away from this game it is its graphics. While the gameplay is fun at first there isn’t a lot of variety in them meaning you will find yourself getting bored as hell very quickly. But that is where the price comes into play. For just £3.99 you are getting a pretty good wave shooter that will easily deliver on enough fun to give you value for money. This is one I can easily recommend, even if it is a little shallow in gameplay.
