DESCRIPTION

       lightyears is a strategy game with  steampunk  elements.  You  are  the
       ruler  of a new city on an alien planet and you have to provide it with
       energy to let it advance. To achieve this you have to construct  "Steam
       Makers" and connect them through pipes and nodes.

       Ensuring  a stable and plentiful steam supply will let you upgrade your
       city.  This will result in additional "work units" which will allow you
       to  do  a  higher  amount of simultaneous construction work. Other than
       constructing "Steam Makers", nodes and  pipes,  you  can  also  upgrade
       those to increase their efficiency.

       To  make your task more difficult there are atural phenomenons that may
       harm part of your network, in which case you will have to repair it  in
       hurry  before  the city loses too much energy. You’ll also have to face
       enemy alien ships, of increasing power as the game advances, which will
       attempt to destroy your infraestructures.
