Fallen earth

Definitely some bits and pieces of Steampunk in this one.  I spent some time beta testing this and It's probably the most interesting MMO I've ever seen in 20 years of testing.  The main website is http://forums.fallenearth.com/fallenearth/

There's even one person streaming the game live at times.  Some of those are recorded here http://fallentears.fliggo.com/

Some of the most simple things aren't polished, some of them are polished beyond belief.  If they survive long enough I can see everything smoothing out.  

Check out the youtube of some of it.  Heck even the dances are worth the price of admission

I'm not surprised no one here has posted it as it was a pure mistake I found it originally.

For some reason I felt Fallen Earth wouldn't have that much steam, more modern post apocalypse.

The game does look brilliant, but I have serious issues with pay-to-play MMO games.
I'm of the opinion that you should be able to play a game you buy whenever you want not "buy a license to play" for x number of days/hours.
Especially with things like RPGs I tend to take breaks and go back to them but also tend to play them a lot in those times.

Bottom line, great idea, cool looking game, but to me no game is worth $50 AND $120+ a year.

I share the sentiment.
I'd probably get this, if not for the fact that it's £30 to BUY the damned game, and then they force more money off you.

I refuse to play these kinds of MMOs.

I refuse to play any MMOs based upon a level system (except for WWIIOl, but thats because at higher ranks I get access to other weapons/tanks but the earlier ones are still effective), as they drive me round the twist. As I tend to spend roughly 75% of my time in any given MMORPG actually RPing, I get annoyed that I have to level up to get kit that I want to use for RP. Its damned annoying, as I want to be immersed, not rinse, repeat everything constantly to get the chance to do it all again with a new button to press every 10 or so levels...
Sorry, am badly scarred from MMORPGs.

I enjoyed the dance video, but not a game I'd play myself.

Mmm, I'd like to play it too but I'm not prepared to actually pay for it. Give me written RPs anyday!
Having said that, that's some pretty funky dancing going on there. I chortled muchly at the one to Tom Jones. Grin

R.E steamy games, although I can't think of anything specific offhand, I was playing Kingdom Hearts today and there's a rather nifty Keyblade in it made up of cogs and wire that produces some nice effects when you hit stuff. Grin I've looked for a screenshot but can't find anything sadly. Sad It's called the Wishing Star if anyone's interested.

Ok, never mind - about three minutes in you can see all the snazzy coggage. Grin

Well, I know I'm a bit late in contributing to this topic, but I shall add in my two cents anyway.

American McGee's Alice is a fantastic horror game, with many wonderful Steampunk elements (especially the Mad Hatter level). Also, I'm shocked that not a one of you mention the Professor Layton games. Though I have yet to play the second one, the first one was absolutely amazing. The animation is similar to Hayao Miyazaki, who had some of his films mentioned in the movie thread, and the music is delightful. Smiley

I think both of those have already been mentioned.
Alice was tremendous, and even better is recent talk of a sequel.

I know for a *cough* fact that you CAN find a download of the game, it just takes a lot of digging around.

forgive me, but I didn't feel like reading through 10 pages to see if this was mentioned or not.  But Crimson skies is steampunk ish.  Centered around air ships, and zeplens.  And flying outlandish planes that we can't fly ect.

I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future.

Ahhh but it was mentioned on the second page. Surely that wouldn't be too hard to look at right... just teasing Wink

Hello Brass Goggle Steampunk members I've recently created a development blog for the game my team is currently making any comments or feedback would be productive. I plan to update it daily with all progress concerning the game and also maybe throwing in a web comic and flash game inside it too so please come and look at the development of Trials of Treboria

Trials of Treboria Blog www.trialsoftreboria.blogspot.com

Thank you

has anyone thought about making an MMO of our own?  I'm not a programer, so I wouldn't know where to begin, but what if we made an mmo and made money off of it?

It goes completely against the original hardcore gamer demographic - mysanthropic, antisocial bastards who don't want to have to deal with other people, especially sharing gametime with them.

The game Torchlight just released on steam seems to have a chunk of steam-fantasy wedged into it. Alchemists, guns, quad-walkers...

I've not finished downloading the demo yet but hopefully it will be a laugh. The game is basically Diablo (created by many of the same guys), with a more cartoony feel to it and also that chunk of weird tech going on.

As a result though it has ridiculously low hardware needs, the developers have said they've been playing it on palmtops. This is the purely single player release then apparently they have plans to roll it out into an MMO, blegh, next year. Make your character, and go into a dungeon, which are randomly generated so every time you're gonna meet something different.

By the looks of things the developers have taken the view of "if it ain't broke don't fix it," rather than all new fancy graphics and bloom and such.

I've heard of this, but I never did care for Diablo. I think I may download the demo, since the screen shots looked pretty cool, although, judging by the screen shots I did look at, I didn't really see any steampunk elements. It looked too to fantasy like.

Also, I'm sad I've never been able to play Skies of Arcadia. Sad

I can respect this.  You don't need alot of rediculous graphics for a good game.  The game just has to be fun, period.  If you can play the game, and get enjoyment out of it, then its a good game.

I'm acually considering buy the game, $20 isn't much.  And if I can play it on my EEEPC then so much the better.

So, nevermind. I played Torchlight, and not only is it awesome and I'll most likely buy it now, it really does come off as steampunk. I think the cartoonish style, and the steampunk feel really did it for me, because as I said before, I wasn't, at all, into Diablo.

Having played the demo myself now I've got to agree. I never really liked diablo when I played it once or twice as a kid, and I lost my Diablo 2 disc before I even managed to install it, probably because I had memories of not liking the first so just let the disc get buried and most likely thrown out.

Alchemy and Steampunk go pretty well together for starters, and this has both. Also the cartoony style is more reminiscent of Warcraft 1 and 2 which I loved, rather than say World of Warcraft which from the little I've seen is a pretty poorly done example of a less serious style.

I'll certainly be checking my bank account at some point and probably getting it as a wee game to fill in any time I'm bored or waiting for downloads/scans and such to finish. What with it being so easy on the hardware even my rather veteran computer would be able to run it while scanning/downloading things. While the random dungeon creator should keep it interesting.

Torchlight was fun (just finished the demo), wasn't too bad, but seeing as I have Dragon Age on it's way to me, I won't be stretching the bank to include this little ditty of a game as well
