Volcanoids: are you a manic (steampunk) miner? (game trailer).

Here’s an interesting looking steampunk game – Volcanoids, where you play a pilot of a drill-ship (think the mole-tanks from Stephen Hunt’s Jackelian novels). You have to explore and mine your way to glory on a mysterious island run by some nutter with an army of killer steammen robots. The drill-ship itself looks very nice with […]

Here is Universal’s look at the art and artists behind that steampunkish shine from Philip Reeve’s original literary creation.

Nemo Rising by C. Courtney Joyner (book review).

It’s a long time since I read ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Sea’ by Jules Verne, so I don’t remember a great deal about it. Admittedly, it’s even longer than that since Jules Verne wrote it in 1870. ‘Nemo Rising’ features the return of Captain Nemo and the Nautilus, as well as more sea creatures, marvellously […]

Mortal Engines (steampunk movie: second trailer).

Here’s the second trailer for Peter Jackson’s upcoming adaption of the steampunk-scifi Mortal Engines novel. It’s looking very interesting at least from a visual point of view – like someone breathed life into Stephen Hunt’s Jackelian books. I mean, come on, Court of the Air, anyone? Definitely a flick to watch.

Frostpunk – the steampunk city-builder game.

Here’s the new trailer for Frostpunk, the steampunk city-builder game set during a future ice-age. The game from 11 bit Studios looks excellent, but I can’t help but wonder why all these computer games inspired by the feel-and-themes of Stephen Hunt’s best-selling Jackelian steampunk novels (in this case the future ice-age that preceded Jackelia’s rise) don’t just bite […]
