Steampunk goes green… Wrylon Robotical Illustrated Catalog of Botanical ‘Bots.

Here’s the 1912 edition of the delightfully steampunkish Wrylon Robotical Illustrated Catalog of Botanical ‘Bots – it’s actually a Kickstarter project, but given it’s only a few hundred dollars away from its target amount, this splendid-looking book will probably be winging its way to us very soon. Its creator Barry McWilliams has imagined a world […]

Farmville goes steam(punking) crazy!

Is that the sound of a genre becoming overexposed? The social farming game Farmville has just cottoned onto the steampunk movement and is now offering a number of steampunked animals and goodies as prizes such as the famous Steam Owl, Steam Deer, Steam Horse, Steam Pegacorn, Steam Sheep and Steampunk Mansion. The prizes are good […]

Teasing your Tesla.

It’s not often you see a trailer on the interweb for a convention, let alone a steampunk convention. So let’s take our (top)hats off to the jolly blighters at TeslaCon 3. It’s running November 30th – December 2nd, 2012 at the Madison Marriott West, Middleton (nothing to do with Kate, one presumes), WI in the […]

Warehouse 13 gets steampunked.

Did you think the steampunk artefacts held in Warehouse 13, and some of their plots (meet HG Wells, serial killer) were accidental? Not a bit of it, sir, as this spiffing documentary from the production team would like to make clear.

Xbox 360 steampunk game control.

Come on, admit it, who hasn’t wanted an Xbox 360 steampunk game control at some time or another? We certainly are guilty. It makes all those X-box games so more refined when you are sitting down and playing them in one’s gamepunk dressing gown or tweeds, what? Luckily, there’s a chap called Devlin over at […]

The making of steampunk gamer’s delight, Dishonored.

There’s a making of documentary just hit the view-tubes that goes behind the scenes of the fab-looking upcoming computer game, Dishonoured. So far, all we’ve had are the trailers for this game, so it’s nice to see some flesh put on the bones of the Victorian world. It could almost be the Kingdom of Jackals’ […]

Portal gun, steampunked.

There are portal guns, and then there are steampunk portal guns. Artist Duncan Shirah knows what we like. He’s a very talented guy and has designed some lovely pieces of work, many which aren’t steampunk portal guns (but still seem, at least to us, to have a little steampunk aesthetic to them).
