We already dwindled on the subject before but ''tv channels for a steampunk world'' thread inspire me to re-put the subject on the table.

What if , throught some plebotinium, the victorian invented videogames ?

My ideas:


Tap Heroes

Ducktales I and II

Little Nemo

Starfox I and II

Watch And Play games especially Octopus

Those handheld bubble ability game

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

I'm rather partial to the classic Aerial Invaders. The game where your gunnery crew had to fight off descending formations of the Kaisers airship fleet.

All kinds of wonderful mechanical arcade machines existed before the introduction of Pong in the 1970's. Why would steampunks need video games?

I second the opinion about mechanical emulators becoming the rage of Victorian amusement parlors.  Specifically those which employ a kine-scope visual element with clockwork actions.
