This article is one of several that are an attempt to address the problems within the steampunk community. These problems are not the doing of steampunks who enjoy the culture, but of those who wish to only make profit from it.
It’s a common misconception that steampunk is Victorian Science Fiction. I fully believed this misconception until I discovered what I believe to be the truth. I believe this because it makes a lot more logical sense. This description of steampunk has been hidden under a veil of deceit by clever people who simply want to further their own career. It’s done by convincing you that their opinion of steampunk is the correct opinion and removing any that disagree. Continue reading
I read with interest, an article by Professor Elemental that he wrote for Airship Ambassador and the Steampunk Hands Around the World project. In it, he mentioned that he thought steampunk had got a little bit too serious and that we all should release our inherent silliness. Continue reading
I may have been tempting fate by getting in touch with someone who uses the word Cephalopod in their company name (I already spelled it wrong just then – thank you spell checker).

You all remember Tea Bombing and how everyone was going to try it, but never did? Well recently I became aware of arguably the best steampunk past-time in the world. Teapot Racing is a sport seemingly exclusive to the Wellington steampunk group “Capital! Steampunks”. Having raced radio controlled cars when I was around 15 years old, I was fascinated by what it entailed, so I got in touch with Col. Sir Julius Hawthorne – administrator of the group – to ask him all about it. This is an interview that you’ll really enjoy.
Remember SteamWorld Dig that I reported the teaser trailer on back in 2013? I just about did. It was to be released on Nintendo 3DS and since then has also been released on Playstation 4, PS Vita and Wii U.
Image & Form who created the game have still got to make some amendments to it before release and they’re also creating an “elaborate easter egg“. They don’t have a release date yet, but it seems they’re so excited about the news that they simply had to tell us all about it right now. They do expect it to be available by late May 2015.

(“Netmarble”), today announced Quickboy will launch this April on iOS and Android devices. Continuing to build upon their wide catalogue of high production quality, fun-filled games, Quickboy promises to deliver fast-paced action set in a post-apocalyptic world.

Tommy Hawk isn’t just on a mission to find his brother, he must also save the world!
As the story unfolds in Quickboy, Tommy will encounter not only undead foes but also several friends along the way. Players will have the option of choosing from a variety of unique characters with their own personalities. While on the mission to deliver packages, players must also collect coins in addition to bolts and nuts used to produce a trusty sidekick in the form of drones. Run, jump, slide, equip drones or even take flight with a jetpack past grueling obstacles in over 70 stages containing quest-based missions. With waves of zombies in the way, it is essential that players take advantage of the items and bonuses made available to them. Compete against others in World Challenge Mode and become the number one “Quickboy”. Mayhem is on the horizon!
