[Octopodicon] Steampunk in Space 1

As promised for any Octopodicon person who might wander by, here’s links to what we talked about during Steampunk in Space.


  • Starclimber by Kenneth Oppel was recommended by a member of the class. Be warned, there’s a lot of flash on this site and it makes sounds.
  • Airship Enterprise


  • Space 1889 – Which has been fully funded on Kickstarter
  • Mage: The Ascension – Drive Thru RPG link to the core tabletop book. MtA isn’t strictly a steampunk RPG, but one of the traditions (Sons of Ether) is very steamunk – Aether ships!
  • Spelljammer


  • Cowboys and Engines – Richard Hatch movie, very steampunk west. And involves Malcolm McDowell with some fabulous facial hair.
  • A Trip to the Moon/Le Voyage dans la lune – the 1902 film
  • Firefly – This was brought up often as an example of a show with a very steampunk ethos, though not necessarily the aesthetic. Though it very much has the wild west angle covered.
  • Treasure Planet – Aesthetically steampunk?
  • War of the Worlds: Goliath – Arguably dieselpunk, animated movie, looks very cool

    Whut? I could have sworn I saw a Space:1889 game in the store sin the, uh, 80s? 90s? Definitely in some sort of past.

    I guess this is a reboot, or something (I never played the original games, but I have vague recollections of ,umblings of “occasionaly over-complex”).
