[Update]: They Are Billions has now fully released from Steam Early Access alongside a new singleplayer campaign.

They Are Billions is a steampunk strategy game where you have to gather resources in order to build up mighty defenses and a powerful military, all in an effort to stop an innumerable swarm of zombies from tearing through your walls and feasting on all of your citizens. As you might imagine from that description alone, the map layout and the amount of available resources can drastically change you strategy and result in some wildly different gameplay experiences, for better or worse.

With that in mind, I am very glad to announce that the developers have now added a fully fledged Custom Level Editor. So if you're up for creating and sharing your very own maps, or just checking out some of the community-made ones, you should head on over to the They Are Billions Steam Workshop.

As far as features are concerned, the Custom Level Editor allows you to create and modify events in order to spice up the gameplay, tweak various settings in order to get your missions to behave exactly as you want them, and perhaps most importantly of all, use the in-build scripting language to create entirely new gameplay mechanics. Learning how to use all of this is likely going to take you a while, there is no avoiding that fact, but there is thankfully an official guide that will help you speed things along.

To learn a little bit more about the Custom Level Editor update, as well as what the developers are planning for They Are Billions' future, you should head on over to Steam.
