"Brass and lots of it" :D

Persoanlly I think any of the Fianl Fantasy games would sorta be considered SP because they lots of SP elements, i.e. Having to use close combat weapons, armors when you could just shoot them with big cannons.  Grin

Is anyone else rather excited about this game as well?  If only for the steamy world.

Edit: seems the primary creator (fuzzy eyes) is having some finacial trouble.  And is selling off some of its stock to compensate.  In the meantime a majority of the staff has been laid off.

They were supposed to resume production in jan. but I can't seem to find anything about them coming back into production, or even their web site.

*sigh* it looks to be that they might never make this game.

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.

Well; in response to the FF games being steampunk, I can understand where you are coming from. However, most of them simply fall into the category of magi-science.

However- if you are really looking for a Final Fantasy game that is steampunk, I recommend VI. Best one in the series in my opinion, and it's without a doubt the most steampunk of them all.

In response to Neosteam- the overall concept was interesting at first, however, once downloaded, I discovered serious flaws in the development, such as sling-shot movement and a somewhat "broken" loot system. The character creation also left something to be desired.

My list of "steampunk" games is fairly short, but most of them are rather good. These are just the ones that I own currently, I've played dozens, but can't recall most names.
  • Dark Chronicle/Dark Cloud 2 (depending on where you live, it could be called either)
  • Rogue Galaxy (space pirates, very "Treasure Planet"-y in feeling)
  • Final Fantasy VI (steam-mechs, generators, and other such fun)
  • Wild Arms 3 (wild west, sand-boats, and more)
  • Jak and Daxter (the original had a somewhat steam-y feel to it, with lots of copper and clunky machinery)

I've made a post before but oh well, another game to add to my list would be Lost Odessey because even though it still uses "magi-science" most of it loos steam punkish :d

It may be worth saying, though NDAs make things hard, that a certain MMORPG based on little plastic bricks includes steampunk - steamy constructions, top-hats and pith-helmets can all be found in the opening sections of the game.  That is all I will say on the matter...

Also...

Good Old Games is DRM-free, so I think the person who mentioned it must have been confused.

Anyone noticed the steampunk-ish details about Fallout 3? The setting might be post-apocalyptical but there was quite a bunch of small things that fascinated me, such as the Alien Blaster plus plasma ammunition, the Gauss cannon, all the nugged leather clothing and more or less improvised machinery. And apart from that it's worth a play anyway.

Most of the stuff is an offshoot of dieselpunk, with a smattering of raygun gothic, so yes, it's a distant cousin of steampunk.

For PC games there's Return to Mysterious Island (and now Return to Mysterious Island 2) based on the Jules Verne novel (one of my favorites ever!). They seem to be mostly puzzle/environmental interaction games, but maybe once you discover the "secret" of the mysterious island you'll get to see and/or play with all the gadgets and devices. I haven't played them yet so I can't confirm this.

Also, if you're into quirky indies puzzle games you should check out The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom (http://www.winterbottomgame.com/). Basically you use time paradoxes to create copies of yourself to get through the gauntlets, all for the love of pie. I love the stylistic elements - comical character design, silent film presentation, cogs and wheels everywhere powering various obstacles that stand between you and your pies. I got to play it for a bit at Wired NextFest when it was still merely a concept game and I can tell you it get's addicting after a while.

LOL, was just going to link this myself.. the Aeronaughts are about as SteamPunk as you can get between using a steam powered jetpack and using steam blasts for attacks, not to mention they have a distinct Victorian look to their default clothing.

Red Dead Redemption deserves a mention. Not really a Steampunk game, but it is definitely Edwardian/Victorian, so it might be of interest for Steampunk fans. Also, Assassin's Creed 1 and 2 are sort of Steampunk in spirit (having a mix of historical and future tech as well as 'what if' tech), although they take place in earlier eras.

I consider it my right to also "OWN" anything I pay for, so I agree with elShoggotho. I also consider myself a pirate, so I "own" many things I didn't pay for.

As for really Steampunk games, it depends a lot on what aspects of steampunk each person relates to as to how steamy things seem. For some, if the player happened to have a cane, top hat and pocketwatch, they would say, "Hey, it's a steampunk game!" There are lots of games that I can relate to, that convey certain steampunk ideas, but it doesn't make them steampunk. Then there are those that really try to be steampunk and fall short or completely fail. I've tried most of the games listed and haven't been very impressed with most of them, but a few were alright. Designers need to remember, throwing gears and rayguns on there may sell some games, but overall, gameplay is still the most important thing.

i know of a few steampunk games that i cannot believe my fellow steampunks could have missed(and yes i have read this whole thread) so here they are:

nevermore- a trilogy of flash games made by some guy on deviantart (has airships and skytrains)

strormwinds- a flash game by hero interactive with more airships than you can shake a stick at (it was actually the my first ever experiance of the wonderful steampunk genere)

i have no mouth and i must scream- a very disturbing game that is based on a short story by Harlan Ellison (super hard to find these days outside of america)

dark seed 2- a game by H.R gigeir (i guess it qualifies as steampunk[also quite rare])

zoombinis: logical journy- i guess its a little more fantasy than steampunk, plus it secretly teaches you algebra(and has an awsome theme song)

rayman 2- hey its got space pirates, i mean what more could you ask for?

anyway i hope this was useful to you all.  Grin

Since no one's mentioned them here yet, Penny Arcade's On the Precipice of Darkness games have a definite steampunk feel to them even though they are technically set in the in the 1920's.

I was resolutely reading through the thread to see if anyone mentioned those games just so I could be sure they were covered.  It's the only video game I've gotten my girlfriend to try.

i've not read all the posts, so forgive me if this has been mentioned already.

i have to make a special mention to the classic 'The Chaos Engine' by the Bitmap Brothers in the early 90's.

This was my first exposure to steampunk, until i realised i used to listen to jeff waynes war of the worlds in the early 80's that was.

anyway it was true steampunk, and not something with steampunk elements.

if you can download a good amiga emu and the game (preferrably the cd32 version), then you're in for a treat!

Haven't read the entire thread, but just in case no one has mentioned it - the granddaddy of all Steampunk games was made into a (bad) computer game - Space 1889.

Steampunk games? there has been a revolution of retro futuristic games that comes to mind.

Neo-Steam: Yes buggy and has its issues, still follows the ideas...mostly. I don't like the run graphics and the random bloom.
Arcanum: Oh yes, especially when you try to balance out being a tech/magic user, much more diffigult.
Myst Series: The idea of taking what you have and using it to the best ability has to be steampunk tech. Atrius uses steam for almost every island that doesn't already offer an energy source.
Allods: Yes it has fantasy written all over it, however take a look at the ships and some of the tech. Its neeto!
Wings of Icarus: its a DL game based on you being the only worker on a small airship. You have to defend your shipment and ship against other ships and planes.
Aqua: Steampunky enough to notice a mention. It relies on the ocean, but has "experimental flying craft" as part of it.
D&D Online: I know i'm gonna get flak for this, but Ebberron to me is seeped in steampunk. At least developmental tech at least.

I have to agree with the people on the Rapture/Columbia thing. It is built upon the 1940's design and feel. It could be called Steampunk in other ways, leaving out the Victorian Era mentality its completely able to live under the steampunk banner!
There is a strictly Steampunk MMO thats based heavily on the 19th century out there, still in development.

Ooh, I just remembered a great Steampunk game:

Syberia

A really good game, though a bit slow-paced for some. It's dripping with Steampunk though.
