Damnation is a steampunk-themed third-person shooter game developed by the company, Blue Omega Entertainment. It comes in both Single player and multi-player modes, both of which allow players to assume the role of Hamilton Rourke, the leader of a group of outlaws who exist in an alternate 19th century United States. The country is suffering from the effects of the Civil War and the proliferation of high-tech steam-powered robots and weapons. Rourke’s rebel group is determined to free America from the dictatorship of Prescott, a sinister industrialist who has completely taken over the country through his robot army.
