Steampunk

What happens when you get the developers of those old Nabisco mini-golf Flash games and have them make a new type of mini-golf title? Well evidently, you get something completely off-the-wall and bizarre, which feels more lik...
Size Five Games, previously known as Zombie Cow Studios (the studio behind the twin-stick edutainment STD shooter Privates and point-and-click adventure titles such as Time Gentleman, Please!), has released the debut trailer...
SteamWorld Dig is hitting the Wii U on August 28th, and if you happen to live in the EU, AUS, or NZ regions, you'll get a 25% off discount for owning the 3DS version. But wait -- why isn't this cross-buy discount availab...
This isn’t the first rodeo for SteamWorld Dig -- the cute mining adventure game first arrived last year on the 3DS eshop, followed by a Steam release. Now it’s making a comeback to the Wii U this week on August 28...


There is something about turn-based battles on a square grid that always seems to captivate me. Taking that idea out of the generic fantasy setting garners bonus points for me too. Granted, Acaratus is described to take plac...
Here's a game I can get behind. Vertiginous Golf  is, "a first-person exploratory mini-golf" title, set in a dystopian steampunk world. I'm sure that world is interesting, but it's the mini-golf I'm excited about. Those...
My first reaction to this annoyingly teaserish trailer for The Chaos Engine was, "Holy eff! They're remaking The Chaos Engine!" That is not quite what's happening here -- this is a "restoration" of the classic top-down co-op...
Ready at Dawn Studios showed off a trailer for a new IP for the PlayStation 4, called The Order: 1866. While the trailer didn't show a lot, it did show enough to get me excited. It's a Victorian-era setting with lots of awes...
Will there be another Just Cause? Probably. I mean, if there's any justice, yes. But those recent pictures Avalanche Studios founder Christofer Sundberg put out on Twitter aren't it. When Edge pressed him on the matter, he ca...
Just last week, we first learned about Teslagrad in its debut trailer. The video piqued Jordan's interest with its steampunk world, hand-drawn art, and magnetism-based puzzle platforming. If you also liked what you saw, you c...
Arkane Studios has pulled the curtain back once again on Dishonored through an always welcome developer diary, this time talking about immersion in the game. It starts out with the title's Visual Design Director, Viktor Anto...
You know, I'm getting quite tired of all these exclusive pre-orders at every single retailer for every new game that comes out. It becomes a hassle if you pick a crappy one, because then you have to wait a couple months to pu...
Few games actually require no introduction, and this is certainly one of them. This long-winded, turn-based strategy series has persistently delved deep into the core of human history, and what it takes for a nation to start,...
Locked up for a crime you did not commit, and accused of killing the empress you swore to protect, you are left to rot in prison for your unjust conviction. Your only saving grace is an amoral mystical being who endows you wi...
Thief: Deadly Shadows is the third game in the Thief series. You sneak around in the shadows to steal things, but did you know that this game also has zombies in it? Did you know that there are open-world areas with side...
We've seen some very pretty screenshots of Bethesda's Dishonored, but so far, nothing in motion. Those hoping for gameplay footage will be disappointed, since this is a CG trailer, but it's still pretty exciting stuff. Check...
Bethesda today unleashed some new screenshots for Arkane Studios' unique steampunk shooter, Dishonored. Decadence and devilry rule the roost in this selection of very nice looking images.  There's some concept art as wel...
Yes, you read that correctly. Today's episode of The Destructoid Show is the closest we've actually come to the late-90's flashback episode I've been dying to do that gives me an excuse to buy a Rammstein shirt and some UFO p...
I've been in the market for a cheap fight stick for a while now, but this custom one from Shoryuken forum-goer b15SDM has convinced me that opulence may be more important. After all, why get a basic no-thrills stick when you ...
Steampunk, while something I have never gotten into, is an interesting concept that romanticizes a bygone age of top hats, monocles and industrialization. It also gives rise to some unique takes on technology, like a steampun...
At the Microsoft showcase yesterday, I was put in charge of checking out the latest Fable III DLC pack, Traitor's Keep.  First, I have to make a confession: I haven’t played any of the other Fable games for more than twenty minutes, so I can’t give you the most expert analysis. However, I will gladly give you my two cents on what I saw. Read forth!
I just played the demo for this XBL Indie Game, Paipa, and it's pretty fun. A steampunk-themed puzzle game where you're trying to keep Her Majesty's ship afloat. Her Majesty's ship that's on a non-stop flight to Mars, that i...
The long and tumultuous saga of Edge of Twilight continues. Yesterday, developer Fuzzyeyes told Destructoid that rumors concerning the game's cancellation were untrue, but it did confirm that there were severe issues at play....
Yesterday there were rumors that Edge of Twilight had been canceled, and today we bring news that is kind of good and kind of bad. Fuzzyeyes has stopped production of the awesome-looking steampunk game, but the news is not as...
Edge of Twilight is a game we've been following a lot on Destructoid, but if recent rumors have any truth to them, the coverage may be ending without reward. The release of Fuzzyeyes' steampunk adventure game is in severe dou...
Don't panic, anybody! Edge of Twilight, the steampunk action game that Destructoid has been anxious for since forever, is still called Edge of Twilight. Developer Fuzzyeyes was apparently involved in a bit of legal nonsense, ...
Every time I see an email in my inbox from Fuzzyeyes, I get all excited, because it usually brings some great Edge of Twilight news with it. Today we have a small handful of screenshots from the sweet looking steampunk action...
Edge of Twilight developer Fuzzyeyes likes Destructoid. Hot off the heels of our world exclusive E3 trailer, we have very kindly been granted permission to reveal the first piece of background story for Edge of Twilight, a fi...
Just a reminder to those of you who weren't around when I posted this contest in the first place: the insane computer above is UP FOR GRABS in a contest here on Destructoid that ends on June 19th. It was custom made for the r...
Remember that sick, sick PC that we posted about a few months back that was being specially created by artist Jake Hildebrandt for the release of Damnation? Well, it's finally complete, and you can see pics of it from every a...
Every MMO is a gamble in my opinion, regardless of who is behind its creation: a lot of them are pretty shabby clones of other MMOs. Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent, the first offering from Atlus' online portal, looks pret...
Ready for something a little different for your DS? How does an adventure in the skies sound? Check out the description of Nostalgia, a new game from Ignition and Tecmo on the way this September:Set in an alternate-reality ve...
Eurogamer has some pretty awesome-sounding details concerning the steampunk adventure Edge of Twilight, due for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. The game is said to be heavily story-driven, with the tale of amoral bounty hunter Lex bein...
We talked about Edge of Twilight back in August 2007, when its steampunk art stylings first hit the internet and had people arching their eyebrows with curiousity. Despite the excitement over the tone of the concept art, the ...
I am a complete sucker for certain eras, no doubt more than half of the reason I was completely obsessed with BioShock for months on end. Apparently I'm not alone, as Something Awful did up a recent Photoshop Phriday with ele...
If there's anything Boing Boing likes better than liberalism bordering on anarchism, and futuristic, fictional stories that actually reveal deep truths about the current state of the human condition, it's steampunk anything, ...
 EDIT:  You all seem very puzzled!  As much as I enjoy your hurt and confusion, allow me to 'splain.  This video is, as far as I am able to speculate, a demo reel for a fighting game that is based on an a...
Kentia Hall is the infamous vault one can find behind and between the normal passageways at E3.  From descriptions by various E3 attendees over the years, I have gathered that Kentia is mostly regarded as a sad little de...
