Nothing so far.  Check their facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/CityofSteam?ref=stream  We're supposed to be going live in April I think, or perhaps that was Greed Monger's Alpha...I can't keep games straight anymore, there's just too many.

On another note, Thief 4, just titled Thief, is finally being talked about.  There's a lot of dissension in the ranks of us older fans/mission makers at the ttlg.com forum.  Game Informer (April) seems to have all the info right now.  If anyone cares, I'll post some links.  There's a trailer/devs talking about it too.

Metroid Prime 3 had a heavily Steampunk inspired level in the form of Skytown. Steampowered robots roamed the city, Steampipes littered the halls, maintenance was automated, and everything had that rustic feel to it, It even used a rail system similar to those shown in the upcoming Bioshock game.

Apparently there's a game coming later this year for 3DS called Steamworld Dig.

Goddamit! I really thought Bioshock Infinite had completely invented that, in fact it seemed to be the one true innovation. Given how derivative much of it was I probably should've known better.  Cheesy

I don't know if these could but America Megee's Alice games are fairly clockwork and Steampunk.

Also Thief games not sure is someone mentioned them or if they setting being late middles ages for the more into another genre, there definitely lots of steam power and even a religions devoted to steam mechanisms

City of Steam is open beta this Friday:

So, how is this going to work and what has changed? Well, that’s exactly what we’re planning on telling you! As we’ve announced about two weeks ago, you’ll all be able to play City of Steam on May 10th. What we hadn’t announced yet was that it starts at 8PM EDT (GMT-4) for Collaborators. Just go to cos.r2games.com, log in and click the big button… or you know, use any preferred arcane method to play our game.

If you're not a Collaborator, then it should start at 10PM EDT.  There will be jetpacks, a new wilderness public area, and jumping.  They've also made bindable keys.  I do believe there will be a standalone client as well, but I don't know if that will be now, or later on when it's closer to launch.  They did get greenlit on Steam.

Some of the Castevania games seemed to qualify. Dishonored was kind of iffy, but a great game nonetheless.

I've found it incredibly hard to not rant like a nutter about the next gen consoles. Well one in particular but no I shall refrain from doing so. (I'm predominantly a console gamer so I care about this stuff)

I haven't watched the Sony E3 conference yet, it was just on too late last night. But it does seem from what I'm reading today, that they have squashed M$ and the Xbone entirely, with both price point and their considerably less draconian DRM policy for PS4.

And look what's on the way exclusively.

I can say with confidence that Sony won this years E3, while Microsoft undermined themselves. Meanwhile, Nintendo is stuck somewhere in the limbo between them.

In regards to steampunk: So far I did not see any Steampunk styled games in the news so far. Are there any E3 gems we missed?

Well obviously news is still coming in, but I wouldn't say retrofuturism of any kind has been a predominant theme from what I've seen so far.

Still another game I am excited about, which isn't Steampunk, or possibly even technically Dieselpunk given the time period it's set in, so lets just call it alt history (trust me, it's Dieselpunk allright) is this...

  .

Absolutely loved the last one, and can't wait for it (and it's coming to current gen).

I don't know whether to put this here or if it deserves a thread all of its own, but The Chaos Engine is getting remade on PC!

For those of you that never played it, it was released on Amiga back in 1992 (I think) and was loosely based on the William Gibson's The Difference Engine, and it was beyond awesome.

I am so excited I might just wet myself...  Grin

I have this on steam! this is so saucy, all units are either mechanical ground unit or zepplins and airships <3

all the NPC characters animations are well dressed as well!

oh did I mention how fantastic it is that you can transform into a dragon with jetpack ..... in a RTS game? (you move flying around and attacking, whilst your unit move around as well in real time)

Although the Kongregate online gaming site has a whole category of steampunk games, the two that have stuck with me are Remnants of Skystone (http://www.kongregate.com/games/FliplineStudios/remnants-of-skystone?acomplete=rem) and StormWinds (http://www.kongregate.com/games/HeroInteractive/stormwinds?acomplete=stormwinds)

Remnants of Skystone, a MMO platformer, takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting on a distant planet.  The artwork is charming and the storyline exquisite.  Unfortunately, the developer (Flipline Studios) has abandoned the game in favor of a more profitable restaurant series, but the community is petitioning that the rights to RoS be sold to another company.

StormWinds is a game where one has to defend against overwhelming waves of airships, and the action gets very intense.

SkyBorn by Dancing Dragon has nice Steampunk overtones, though more a fantasy leaning towards a Japanese anime bent. I got my copy at Big Fish Games. I know it's mild by most standards, but it might be more child-friendly; though some of the bad guys can be a bit grotesque (my version of gross is probably mild to some as I don't watch horror). I tend towards a lighter, story-driven game than first person shooters. I should also add that it is an RPG in the old style, as anyone familiar with Aveyond would know. lol great minds think alike. That's what I get for not reading to the end.  Embarrassed

I just bought Bioshock Infinite from Steam for $13.99 and was immediately surprised how Steamy it is. I thought it would be some lab in the future game.
