I recently purchased Gods & Kings, and it's consumed about 48 hours over the past week. I love it. I spent almost my entire day playing Empires of the Smoky Skies twice, and it's got my head churning. First of all, I think that steampunk is awesome, and we need more of it in all forms of media. It's a welcome diversion in Civilization V. I enjoyed the civilizations, characters, units, and other little things created for the scenario (all this aside from the small gameplay changes made specifically for the scenario).
I, personally, would love it if Firaxis expanded upon the scenario, perhaps creating a new IP. They're currently working on a new X-COM game, so perhaps once that's done they can make a steampunk strategy game, building off of what we saw in G&K.
What are your thoughts on this? Is it possible? Or am I just dreaming?
