You close the regulator and bring the heavy Ferguson velosteam to a halt. From the crest of the hill you can see the lumbering freight wagons and the steam carriages of the gentry making their way through the rain-lashed night. Little do they expect the sudden and terrible assault of the Steam Highwayman…
What next for you? A midnight assault on the nobles travelling the Bath Road? Will you rescue the Wethered Brewery from closure or punish the wicked Colonel Snappet? Will you ally with the Compact for Workers’ Equality or find work protecting hauliers on the Wycombe run? Is trading cargo on the Thames more than a profitable sideline? Can you make your way to the glamorous Cliveden Ball or win the Spenser Cup?

With this gamebook app you can track your adventure through an England that never was, discovering secrets, solving quests, rescuing those in need and punishing those who deserve vengeance.
