The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where planet turns into a desert wasteland and the rest of its inhabitants are small populations of robots that are steam-driven and irritated humans. The player gets to control a steamboat which is named Dorothy and is searching for Rusty, her missing friend and protagonist of the first game. When Dorothy gets to know that Rusty has been seen entering the mines of an old trading town, El Machino, she sets off on a journey to find him. The game’s story is more focused now when compared to its predecessor. Events unfold at a fast pace, occasionally hitting you with unexpected twists and tonal shifts that keep the adventure compelling throughout. The entire universe depends on several twists and turns in the tale which contributes to the game’s interesting aspects. Towards the game’s conclusion, past narratives that were once different and indistinct are eventually expounded upon, and they also elevate your attachment to the characters as well as the world.
