If anyone hasn't already put these ones up. Its The Chaos Engine on Mega Drive. A nice healthy mix of pure steampunk. Sky Odyssey on PS2. A good mix of various planes from past and present, most notable part of the game is flying your biplane into an open cast mine as well as landing said plane on an aircraft carrier from the 40's in a force 10 gale.
Fable 2. Not my favourite game but does have an amount of steampunk style. Undecided

Oooo I also nearly forgot Empire of Steel also on Mega Drive.

Has anyone else come across the Khartoum/Zulu mod for napoleon: total war? Downloaded and played today, it's superb! Buggy in places, but hordes of zulus, mahdists, brits with gatling guns, martini henris etc - well worth a go.

I tell ya, you really cannot appreciate the Seige of Khartoum untill you've actually SEEN the lay of the land...  My God...  What that man (Gen. Gordon) was up against, and the fact he held out as long as he did.  Nothing short of amazing.

To this day, the trench he dug and fortified to protect the city from all sides by the Nile is still there.  The fort that the Mahdi held on Tutti Island is a wonder to behold... 

And on that note, I'm going to leave this thread before I get any more homesick.   Cry

I think Alice: Madness Returns is shaping up to be a pretty Steampunk game.

That Alice game does look good actually. This one is imho one of the most criminally underrated games of it's generation. The Legacy Of Kain/Soul Reaver series is quite well known, but Blood Omen 2 is by all accounts the least popular. Set in the fantasy realm of Nosgoth it mixes medievil and old world industrial aesthetics amongst many other things. It is graphically inferior to the other games in the series, probably because it's also far bigger. But it it still looks amazing and is a truly epic adventure with definate steamfantasy elements, that is still influencing many games made today.

Not sure about Alice ive played american mcgees alice didnt really notice anything on it i would of classed as steampunk.
Theres alot of games i wouldnt think to have steampunk elements in them like blood omen 2 probably a major hint that i should play my older games more.

I found a mix of games just by looking at my collection and wantlist:
-BattleFantasia (Fighter with characters like an Airship captain, Faceless Gunman and a Steam armour Dwarf)
-Nier (RPG with magic, houses in the sky and clockwork monsters)
-Damnation
-MySims Kingdom (Kiddie sims game where you can make anything and how you want it)
-Bioshock Infinite

Sorry if this has already been mentioned.  I remember enjoying Skies of Arcadia on the Dreamcast.  The graphics are a bit dated now and it's possibly a bit cheesey, but some of the Airships had a steampunk quality to them.

Crikey I'm getting real nostalgia from this...

Haha that looks excellent. I was given a Dreamcast but I've never played it (no peripherals) I might have to dig it out and get it working just for that.

It has been by me several times, as I feel it is the quintessential Steampunk game. But ore re-posts never hurt Wink

Aye, Skies is one of the best (steampunk AND RP) games EVER made-right behind Legend Of Dragoon (RPGwise) in my eyes.

And I LOVE the Little Jack-she's just a good ship.

Remember: Skies of Arcadia was re-released on the Gamecube, which might be a bit easier to come across. Especially since the original made extensive use of the Dreamcast's special hardware.

I actually have my gold master release candidate discs from SEGA, I got them when I worked there (didn't work on Skies, but my co-worker knew I was a big fan, and gave me the discs, since he already had an official copy of the game).

And I now have my Dreamcast back (sitting right here on my desk at work)... time to re-visit the realms of Arcadia.

Rift is an MMO that is currently in Beta. The Defiant side is based on science & technology & the tech applications of magic. There are all kinds of clockwork & steampunk looking machines all over the place. You can even get a clockwork horse for a mount.

I have heard a lot of interesting things about Rift. I like the idea of having different dimensions that sit above each other (which users can switch between). I think that was the game I read about that was going to do that.

If any of you like Wild Wild West, you should check out Wild Arms 3 for the PS2. It's got a bunch of Western + Steampunk + Fantasy elements and it's probably my favorite RPG of all time (and I say that having played god knows how many.)

Looks good as well. And they'd have to prize my PS2 from my cold dead hands lol!

I'm playing Castlevania Lord Of Shadows at the mo. There are some beautifully rendered levels, including (without trying to spoil it too much for those that havent played it) a rather funky Tesla puzzle and a level involving a clockwork music box. I'd say this game is worth playing just to see it. It certainly has a God Of War/Devil May Cry type vibe. And a lil Blood Omen I think.

Be warned though, it's quite tough!

Lords of Shadow was in my top 5 games of last year. It's one I plan on buying just so i can finish everything to 100%. The visual style was mind blowing, and even though it is tough, it isn't impossible, especially if you practice your combo's and swapping magic types.

It sits next to Red Dead Redemption as the most beautiful game to come out last year.

May I suggest Little Big Planet 2?  The first one was kind of steamy in that you can make your own levels using all sorts of contraptions.  This one just pushed over into steam central with the first two levels of Larry DaVinci and Lady Bathosphere.  Both have a very steamy aesthic.  Also, some of the new costumes such as the gear princess, the aviator, or steamboy are very steampunk as well.

A tip of that hat to Rise of Legends. It was a hugely underrated RTS - still enjoyable if you can find the patches. I wouldn't say the races (besides the Vinci) were that creative, but the game play makes up for it.

Aqua- Twin stick shooter on XBLA, graphics are rather "chunky", but the demo is free, haven't bought the full version yet (money is FAR too tight!)
You can unlock Avatar outfits if that's your kind of thing...

its probably been posted already, but the new up and coming Bioshock 3 is looking steampunk.

i Beta tested Rift and although its a great game i personally wont continue playing, it was fun and all those lovely classes, defiant was where i went, all the talk of technology in there back story dragged me in, then i created a pyromancer which brought me down to earth, i know magic is always going to be a big influence in games like this but i wanted a flamethrower.

i played Neo Steam for a while, but overall i was unimpressed.

I started playing Arcanum again and found that, though the cinematics don't seem to play right at the beginning, it runs seamlessly on my new laptop.

Though, oddly enough, the Install and the Play discs are backwards and the Play disc wont play the game but the Iinstall one will.

I was looking for arcanum to try it out, but I cant find it for sale/download anywhere.

Rift is too much like World Of Warcraft imo. If rift is steampunk, then the engineering and ulduar aspects of WoW could be too.
