Steam Punk

Steam Punk from the computer game Rise Of Legends

Steam Punk according to Rise of Legends

Rise of legends shows women not as repressed, but as heroes: one of them is a hero of a magical kingdom and another a pirate pilot: “Lenora returns to Pirata to prepare her armies [steam punk]” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rise_of_Nations:_Rise_of_Legends

For some more art work from Rise Of Legends look here.

According to wikipedia, steam-punk “is a sub-genre of science fiction and speculative fiction.”

Also the computer game Bioshock (horror game type) has steam punk influences in its art. In fact this is a quote from Wikipedia:

“The underwater city of Rapture. Bioshock’s game design drew on Art Deco and Steampunk for much of its imagery.”

Finally, miniature (board) games (and thus by definition RPG games who often borrow figures from other games) might see steam punk in this way: Steampunk in Miniature

Some might say battletech has steam punk in it. I would not consider those battletech vehicles as steam punk, but more like modern/futuristic giant walkers with neural net interfaces.


As for the author of this article:

“I always imagined that Steampunk would take over the entire universe.

Of course there was a time when we thought we were alone in this big old universe and only our solar system was all that counted.

In those days our single solar-system was simply popping with alien life forms on every planet, some moons, and even here on earth after they invaded us or perhaps were here all along—but we never noticed them!

Fortunately, you can’t criticize my imagination this time as Robert Rankin has also imagined such a crazy universe—yay!”

If your into Steampunk, then you might want to read this book:

“I’d never read any of Rankin’s previous work, but I’d recommend this book to anyone:” http://www.abc.net.au/local/reviews/2011/04/11/3188302.htm

      Steam punk is a bigger then me and I will never really know everything about it.

    Hello,

    I want to let you all in on a brand new search engine I have found. It’s still quite new but I have been using it for a week now and love it. I find the search terms it brings back are much better.

    I suggest you search your website/favorite sites and see if you prefer it to Google or other big names search engines.

    Yeah, your search engine looks cool, but a search on the internet indicates that the search engine is either being used by unauthorized people and/or is into spamming.

    If you are legit, then perhaps you ought to try advertising in a different way…

    For people thinking of using this search engine, maybe you should do some research about it before you decide to make use of it.

    Still thanks for the information and I will be interested in how the search engine goes in the long run.
