TOP10 STEAMPUNK PC GAMES
Aside from the presence of steam power, defining just what is and isn’t Steampunk is no easy task. Gadgetry, brass, copper, airships, the Middle Ages, the Victorian era and possible futures all collide in the games, movies and books we label Steampunk. These games truly run that gamut: from setting, to weaponry, to gameplay, story and genre, these excellent titles prove that diverse elements make for some of the most mind-bending gaming experiences around.
Steampunk sounds pretty cool, but not everyone can imagine it. Simply put, the style describes a combination of modern or futuristic technologies and elements with Victorian England. Sci-fi in retro-look so to speak. The “Steam” comes from steam-powered machines, which often play a major role here.
But there are many more steampunk subcategories, depending on the different technologies or drives in their center: Teslapunk with a focus on electricity (The Order: 1886), Steamfantasy in Van Helsing, Clockpunk (Machinarium) or Whalepunk (Dishonored).
In this top10 list I present the most important current representatives of the steampunk genre, across all genres, scenarios and from indie to AAA blockbusters.
