City of Steam is a 3D MMORPG set in an industrial age fantasy world. Using the Unity 3D engine, along with a number of in-house tools, the game has been optimized to be light and accessible without sacrificing graphics or content. Levels take up mere megabytes, keeping loading times very low. In addition, being browser-based means there is no need to download or install a bulky client; the game can be picked up and resumed on the fly on any other computer that has a web browser.

PointMMO features the fastest download available for every title on the platform thanks to proprietary progressive download technology embedded in the system. The platform is also adding browser games to the mix giving online gamers even more choice when they decide what game they want to play.
