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.


Oh, wow. This looks good.

The original Syberia and its sequel are very steampunk - and also very good games.  They might be a bit difficult to find these days - and they can be a bit buggy at times - but all in all a great set of "steamy" diversions.

I'm actually playing it right now. IanBrettCooper is right, though. It is a little slow, but I have a feeling it'll start to pick up. Otherwise, it's definitely very steampunk-like. I'm enjoying that aspect a lot.

Well, after reading through here, the ONE game I was going to offer up was "Skies of Arcadia," but it has already been mentioned several times!  It IS a great game, and if you've not played it, I strongly suggest that you do (Skies of Arcadia Legends for Gamecube will be easier to find than the original Dreamcast release)!

Lesse here...  Fable 2 was somewhat steampunkish (I feel Fable 3 will be even moreso), BioShock (and the sequel) always gets a nod it seems...  I'd also have to say Fallout 3, granted it's more dieselpunk, but still, a good game none the less...  Strongly recommended!

The thread started off with Myst, and yeah, GREAT gems there.

Hey, no problem!  My brother is the one what introduced me to the concept, and Fallout 3 is what sort of, sealed the deal as it were!  If you've not played it, I STRONGLY suggest it!  One of the best games out there (Portal is THE best, but it's not steampunk AT ALL...)

Does this count? It's browser/text-based, so no fancy graphics =( but it's more about imagination and creativity, and community involvement.

Still in "beta testing" if you want to put it that way.

Oh man, the Syberia games!   I haven't played those in forever.  I may have to see if I can find me some copies and run through them again... Unfortunate that it isn't on Steam or Impulse.  I suppose that would be too easy.

Have you actually played this, Colonel Sanders?  The game seems early enough that they don't have easily accessible information on the site (which they admit to, in their favor) so I'd be curious to hear what it's like.

Apologies that this is slightly off topic, but I was wondering if any you chaps and chapesses had any more info on this?

                     
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

There was nothing else with the pic, and I'm assuming that it's Diesal Cosplay, but it looks like it could be a working chainsaw on a real gun, possibly being held by a real soldier. It's pretty obvious where the inspiration came from. I'm just hoping they are not now standard issue. 
All I can say is ....ouch!  Shocked

I really hope you're not trying to say you believe it'll be used in real combat, and that it's not obviously a guy just tinkering with his gun for fun.

Are airships involved on any level?
-matt
There is an airship in the third game. Unfortunately I can't find a screenshot of it.

I don't know if anyone said this already (too many pages, can't read all of them) but the first Myst-game had something like an airship too... You started it by playing some tune on an organ of some sorts (hey, it had to be an airship, it was on dry land... Don't remember what happened after that tho...) Myst forever =)

No one's mentioned American McGee's Alice? Yeah, Wonderland is a little strange but you'll find lots and lost of gears and steam there =D I love that game.

 It was a rocket ship and it took you to the next world. I think (if memory serves) it took you to some volcanic region and you had to solve some "soundwave machine" then use the underground "track car" to navigate a maze to get out.(that part was a pain in the a$$)

P.S. If I got any of that wrong it's because I didn't bother to look it up. Hell, I just realized how old that game is. (myself for that matter)

its not exactly steampunk.  But Iron horses is a train sim game that takes place in the old west (hence the name).

There are decorative objects like copper boilers, and what not.

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.

Hell; I knew that and I have yet to even reach 20! Please tell me Myst isn't being defined as "an old people's game"? It was remade recently as well Cry

Ok, does anyone here other than me remember the game "Freeway" for Atari 2600?  Growing up, that was one of my favorite games. 

No, not steampunk, not even CLOSE, but you were talking about OLD games...

Just sayin'.

We recently published an iPhone/iOS app called Attraxxion.  It's a physics game set in space using a cartoonish, steampunk vibe.

- EA Partners, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. today announced an exclusive agreement with independent developer, Vanguard Games, to publish the new dual-analogue shooter, Gatling Gears(TM). From the team that created the award-winning Greed Corp, comes the new game Gatling Gears, set within the same Mistbound universe featuring signature elements like collapsing land, walker units and warring factions, but now with twin-stick shooter controls and a new hero, Max Brawley. In this eclectic steampunk setting, players fill the air with lead as they try to defeat a monopolistic corporation that is depleting the world of its natural resources. Gatling Gears will launch on Xbox LIVE(R) Arcade, PlayStation(R) Network and PC in Spring 2011.

Martin de Ronde, Chief Commercial Officer of Vanguard Games, commented, "It is very exciting to be part of an indie studio again, and bringing best practices from my experience at Guerrilla Games to the development of downloadable games. We feel Gatling Gears is a great representation of what our incredibly talented team is capable of and we can't wait to bring this game to market together with a strong publisher like EA Partners."

"When Vanguard Games first showed us Gatling Gears, it was clear we were looking at a best-in-class title developed by people who are passionate about making fun, accessible games," said Jamil Moledina, Outreach Director, Business Development at EA Partners. "Given our strategy of partnering with the top developers in the world, we are very excited to work with Vanguard as they advance the classic twin-stick shooter genre with new gameplay and beautiful visuals."

Gatling Gears will be available for the PlayStation(R)3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360(R) videogame and entertainment system and the PC. For more information on Vanguard Games, visit their website at www.vanguardgames.net, and follow the development team on Twitter at www.twitter.com/vanguard_eg.
