And now we sit back and watch it spread like wild fire… Heaven knows they’ll pull off Steampunk even better in Japan.
Hnnngggg that game needs to be translated and in my hands now
and that’s the tip of the iceberg. Keeping in mind that most Mad Science stories that aren’t classed as Gothic Horror are categorized as Steampunk, particularly if they have a Victorian aesthetic.
True that. I did actually think of those when making this. I was a huge Last Exile fan before I ever heard of Steampunk (if that was even a thing back then). Steamboy, from what I recall, was sort of ahead of its time and wasn’t really embraced by the public, being in the shadow and constant comparison of its predecessor.
Only now do I feel that we’re finally starting to see a slow acceptance in the fashion and concepts that come with the steampunk aesthetic. We’ll just have to wait and see.
