Steampunked

18 replies 35 views Edited Oct 8, 2010

So far I have bought 2 items from something called Steampunk. A gas mask and some kind of backpack contraption with a lot of moving gauges. Is Steampunk a game?

Steampunk is a genre...

i think the most publicly notable steampunk film was the remake of wild wild west (will smith), if you want an example

Steampunk is a forthcoming Public Space set in Nova Venezia, that will feature Home users collaborating to acquire resources and build rockets to save the world from destruction. There was a full preview in the May issue of Qore, and there are some details floating around on the Web.

 

This looks to be a completely new type of gaming experience in Home, and we should see it by the end of the year. The release of those Steampunk items leads me to believe that the release is just a few weeks away.

Thanks I skimmed through that link. But I still don't understand why Home is selling these items. Either way I like them and glad I bought them. I havent seen anyone else with the backpack since it came out last week.

We have a Steampunk space in development. It will probably be here real soon since we are already seeing clothes for it.

I want to get a steampunk personal space and a main space. Can't wait to see what other items we will get.

I am sure the release of the steampunk items is due to the constant community pressure.  Good job everyone  I really do hope it means the space is coming soon.

I personally love that backpack. At .49 cents, I think it's one of the best values in Home. Since you spend most of your time staring at the back of your avatar, all the animated parts are a really nice touch.

The steampunk public space was also announced along side The Midway earlier this year if I'm not mistaken... since there are items for it now available, it shouldn't be too far off now till it's released
