Gadgets and Dragoons is a 2d, turn based strategy game, inspired by 90s fantasy turn-based strategy games.
The game has a XVIII-XIX century fantasy setting, the age of revolutions, huge economic and financial innovations, scientific and technological progress.
The game does have some magic, and does feature some mythical creatures, however, science, technology and economics will play just as big of a role.
