Tongue-in-Cheek Oil Boom Simulation, Turmoil coming to PC on June 2nd

Dutch Game Studio Offers a Whimsical Take on the Simulation Genre and Throws Players into the Mayhem of the 19th Century North American Oil Rush.

Drawing inspiration from the historic 19th century oil rush in North America, Turmoil received a total of 23 updates based on community feedback while in Early Access and garnered a 90% approval rating from Steam users. Now the full game comes to PC on Steam for $9,99/€9,99/£6,99.

Turmoil is a simulation game set during the 19th century oil rush in North America. By prospecting for oil, players earn money and then as towns grow up around them they can acquire town shares in a bid to beat out competitors to become mayor. Since launching on Steam Early Access a year ago Turmoil has evolved and grown well beyond its originally anticipated scope thanks to community feedback and enthusiasm. A larger campaign and gameplay additions such as the natural gas mechanics and stock auction have been added to the final version to offer players a more robust and humorous simulation experience.
