Finding out about games that I never knew existed is one of my favorite parts of the retro community as a whole. Libraries are extensive for many of my favorite consoles, but I’m still amazed upon finding something that seems perfect for me or just wonderfully unique. That second part is what had me keeping an eye out for the 2006 PS2 title, but buyer beware because sometimes there are reasons games remain in the shadows. Steambot Chronicleswas developed and published by Irem Softwear Engineering, though Atlus was brought on to take over publishing duties in North America. It’s a late in life title for the console, having come out a year earlier in Japan, but it seems many didn’t hear about it due to a combination of a small advertising campaign and less word of mouth at the time.
