Quote by Wikipedia article
Steampunk is a sub-genre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of "the path not taken" of such technology as dirigibles, analog computers, or digital mechanical computers (such as Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine); these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or with a presumption of functionality.

Steampunk is often associated with cyberpunk and shares a similar fanbase and theme of rebellion, but developed as a separate movement (though both have considerable influence on each other). Apart from time period and level of technological development, the main difference between cyberpunk and steampunk is that steampunk settings usually tend to be less obviously dystopian than cyberpunk, or lack dystopian elements entirely.

Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by individual artisans into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical "steampunk" style, and a number of visual and musical artists have been described as steampunk.


I was surprised at how little steampunk discussed here, considering the many Final Fantasy fans in the Pit. Well that changes now. Discuss steampunk novels, comic books, video games, movies, fashion, and everything else steampunk.

I just recently bought a pair of steampunk goggles and I absolutely love them. They make me feel like the most confident person in the world. I feel like I could go up to the most beautiful woman in the world and ask her out. I am not lying or exaggerating at all.

I prefer cyberpunk à la Blade Runner.

So, the "underwater" level in TimeSplitters:FP is of steampunk imagery?

I can't say I'm particularly enthused by the genre but the cyborg Abe is brilliant.

It's cool that it makes you feel that way, but lets get back to reality.

I'm a pretty big steampunk fan. My current solo project is a concept album with steampunk themes.

Sure you could ask her out, but in those goggles you'd be lucky if she merely laughed in your face.

I like cyberpunk personally. I love technology. But steampunk is cool because it's so imaginative.

I like the themes and concept of Steampunk, I'm currently working on a couple of Steampunk themed doom metal songs, but I'm not into the whole cosplay side of it.

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

Sounds like all those Mortal Engines and stuff books?
Victorian era is boring as anything but those sorts of books are amazing.
