Cedaria: Blackout – Steampunk Meets the Middle East

A single player/co-op adventure game with RPG elements, influenced by real-world events


Written by on


The distant island of Cedaria is plunged into darkness and industrial decay after the breakdown of an ingenious machine called the Phoenix, which is the source of the island’s electricity. This machine also served as a catalyst for the modernization of society. The cause of the breakdown is unknown. Cities go dark and businesses fail. Peaceful clans turn on each other.  No one remains unaffected.

A wayfarer returns home and steps into the chaos. That wayfarer is you.

Your task is to find the pieces of the Phoenix scattered throughout the island and reassemble it.

Explore unique and fantastical locations, from steamship harbors and rusty factories to ancient ruins and enchanted forests untainted by the industrial movement. Meet a colorful cast of characters, each with his/her own agenda.

The manner in which you accomplish your goal, and the choices you make along the way, will shape the future of Cedaria.


  • Extensive dialogue trees and system that offer multiple outcomes in every interaction with a cast of colorful characters, each with their own agenda, conflicts and goals.
  • Explore the island of Cedaria and its variety of areas; travel through industrialized cities to enchanted forests or climb steep mountains.
  • Learn specific crafting professions ranging from Inventors to Alchemists, which will allow you to progress more easily through the game by crafting specialized gear.
  • Find resources in the wilds which can be used to create powerful tools or concoctions.
  • Immerse yourself in a storyline where your choices weave the fate of Cedaria and where replayability is more than just a buzzword.
  • Cedaria plays equally well in both single player and cooperative mode.
  • Supports Windows, Mac and Linux.

Cedaria: Blackout is due to be released in early 2014. A Kickstarter campaign is in progress and the game is currently on Steam Greenlight.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
