From Uber Goober Games:
Welcome to a world of mad, inspirational wonders and wild scientific theory wrapped in fog, run by gears, and lit by gaslight. Steampunk is a venue for adventure, no doubt about that, with science and technology unhindered by the laws of physics, with societal norms from any culture past, present or future, and with only as much historical accuracy as fits the whims of the moment. It is a realm where anything is possible under the guise of skimming whatever we want from an idealized – or grossly imperfect – version of the 19th Century.
There is no denying that Steampunk is cool. Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy, in which the world has evolved in a much different way. Much of the historical Steampunk literature takes place during the Victorian era of Britain, or the wild west of the USA. Advances in mechanical engineering gave birth to a clockwork, gadget filled society. Consider the works of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells as examples of the possibilities of Steampunk. It involves a world with mechanical artificial limbs, steam powered robots, hand cannons instead of pistols, incredible flying machines, mad scientists, alchemy, and travels through the Aether.
