The Most Atmospheric Steampunk Video Games


Steampunk games that feature steam-powered machines and settings in an alternate history of the Wild West or the industrialized British era of the 19th century are rare. Maybe even more than cyberpunk titles.

Although some games have steampunk elements — just think about the retro-futuristic enemies of Torchlight or the atmosphere of Professor Layton. We focused on these adventures — the ones that really dig themselves deep into this sub-genre — for today’s show us.

To name new games with beautiful, steampunk-inspired visuals, Dishonored and Bioshock Infinite prove that even though these games are rare, the genre won’t go away anytime soon.
