Yesterday, we got our first look at Code Name: STEAM, a new strategy game for the 3DS. It sounded awesome—but the screenshots we got to see? They didn't make the game look so hot. Fear not, though: Code Name: STEAM looks nice in motion.

Here are forty-five minutes of the game in action, with some developer commentary. To refresh your memory, the game takes inspiration from American comic books and has you fighting as a part of a special force set up by Abraham Lincoln to fight aliens inspired by H.P. Lovecraft. Bonkers!

I'm looking forward to this game dropping in 2015—not just because it has a neat premise, but because it's being made by the folks who have been involved in great projects like Advance Wars and Fire Emblem.
