New world in Steampunk Idle Spinner: Clockwork City

Steampunk Idle Spinner is a game where you build an incredible steampunk machines and spin the cogwheels to earn the money and expand your awesome contraption even more. Besides spinning tapping some elements is involved in the money producing process, there are also plenty mechanisms for idle income.

The basic idea of the game is to let the players travel to various steampunk (dieselpunk, clockworkpunk, gas lamp fantasy) worlds from the Portal, which generates Narrativium, a fuel for such travels. Up to now there was only one world: Workshop which has cogwheels, balloons, mines, hammers and engines.

The newest update lets you enter the Clockwork city world.


The main source of energy there is the sun, which works like a cogwheel. Buildings are attached to it via a complex system of gear. They are unfolded (just like in that popular TV series intro, you know what I mean ;) ) and start generating revenue.

There are also tax collectors on zeppelins, rotating sun, power generating crystals and other interesting stuff. Clockwork City world provides you additional ways for earning money (besides spinning the cogwheel, tapping the coins and catching the gremlins).

There are 4 more interactive elements in this city which react to your taps and swipes: will you find them all? Many other requested adjustments were made, performance optimized, restart screen reworked, parameters readjusted, interface tweaked.
Have fun and share your suggestions!

Update is coming

In Steampunk Idle Spinner I want to let the players travel to various steampunk (dieselpunk, clockworkpunk, gas lamp fantasy) worlds from the Portal. Right now I'm making the second world (after the Workshop).

Here's as sneak peek of it:


Does the music play in your head while watching this gif? ;)

Update will be released next week.

The first Youtuber to play Steampunk Idle Spinner

We were delighted to see that Tomasz Pietrzak shared the video of Steampunk Idle Spinner gameplay. Actually, 3 videos!
From the developer's point of view it's so nice to see other people playing your game :) Thank you, Tomasz!

So, here they are, all 3:

Mines now boost money production in Steampunk Idle Spinner


One more way to get more money in Steampunk Idle Spinner. You can build a mine near your money machine. Mines produce wagons of ore. As soon as the wagon reaches the machine, it will receive a small boost of money production. The wagon returns for the next portion of ore. The longer the mine is working, the bigger boost you'll receive.

Steampunk Idle Spinner: mobile game where you build an incredible contraption

Current version: 1.0
Game Wiki

Play in your browser on Kongregate



How to play:

  1. Spin the cogwheels with your finger.
  2. After every 10 rotations the connected coin machine will produce a coin
  3. As soon as you get enough money, you can purchase additional elements (by dragging the icon to the highlighted spots on the screen)
  4. These elements are: - cogwheels (increase speed ratio)
  • engines (will spin the attached cogwheels even when the game is inactive)
  • engine upgrades
  • balloon pumps (will produce balloons which will bring you coins)
  • balloon pump upgrades (will make the pumps produce more profitable balloons)
  • balloon speed upgrades (will make the balloons bring money faster)
  • hammers (hit the cogwheels and make them rotate
  • hammer upgrades
  • money machine upgrades (higher value coins produced from a machine)
  • money storage upgrades (the stored money will produce interest)
  • portal (will produce narrativium, needed to boost the production after the game restart)
  • portal power element (receives the rotational power and converts it into the portal's narrativium generation)
  • portal power element upgrade
  1. You can also sell engines, hammers and cogwheels by dragging a "recycle" button to them (from the bottom-left screen corner). You'll receive full refund minus the "recycle" ability cost (first it's 100 and grows very slowly). Also the item's price in the shop will be reduced (but not fully to the previous level, so, plan your machine building carefully)
  2. As soon as you restart (by tapping the portal or from the menu button), you'll see the narrativium machine next to your money storage (if you earned more than 0 narrativium on the previous run). It can be used for:
  • get money
  • increase time flow speed
  • discount the items in the shop
  1. There are also two secret ways to earn more coins and other bonuses, I wonder, who will be the first to find them :)

I'm tracking the time needed to build this game. For now I've spent more than 80 hours of pure coding. I'd be happy to receive your comments and suggestions.

Portals and narrativium in Steampunk Idle Spinner

New update of Steampunk Idle Spinner is out! It features Portals: a way for the player to reset the progress and to travel between steampunkish worlds. The actual reset will be implemented in the next update, and for now you can start gathering Narrativium!

Besides the portals in the current update there are: Portal power element. Increases the portal's Narrativium production. Make sure to connect engine or a hammer to it, or spin with your swipes.
As your steampunk contraption grows bigger, you'll find gremlins there. Try to catch the gremlin - and you'll receive a reward!
Silent-film styled messages will now explain what's going on in the game.
You'll see your income breakdown by sources.

And here are the timelapse videos of the game development.
