It is rather short, but I really enjoyed this.  If you can find it (and a system to run it), Steel Empire is pretty phantastic too.

I would assume as you mention the one player aspect that you are looking for a computer game?


If you can find an old mega drive the CHAOS ENGINE (I and II) are my all time faves.
Upto date we are talking Bioshock- not 100% steampunk but for a good game and atmos. you can not go far wrong.

I'm not certain if you're referring to console games (as in Xbox, PS2, etc.) or computer games, but I throughly enjoyed playing the Syberia series.  I thought they were very steampunk and the visuals were amazing.

I enjoyed the RTS Rise of Legends, the Vinci are quite Steampunk, It has pirate air fliers, dirgibles, clockwork men, clockwork spiders. Gears all over everything and whatnot. It's very fun.

Bioshock is not quite steampunk, but it's too close not to mention it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcanum:_Of_Steamworks_and_Magick_Obscura  Arcanum can be nabbed on Ebay pretty regularly for a decent price.  I'm sure it can be found in the usual places as well.

The Thief series is good too (there's basically a steampunk religion in it!). A nice twist on the first-person shooter. You can probably find the trilogy bundle on Ebay.
