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.
