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:
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!”
