Clockwork Empire is a world-building board game designed by Kuro (Terrifying Girl Disorder) for Manifest Destiny. Players take the role of clockwork workers, who have been dormant since the apocalypse that destroyed humanity. A sudden lightning strike brings them back to life, and they follow the prerogative the humans programed: Breed. Increase. Players must manage their resources, create new workers, and then maintain them, often fusing them into bigger models. The goal is to dominate the Clockwork Empire.
