Steampunk today can actually be defined in several ways. When it comes to media and entertainment, it is looked at as a subgenre of science fiction that uses technology and aesthetic designs inspired by the 19th century.
Steampunk works often take place in alternative history worlds where Steam-powered technology is extremely prominent. This is usually one of the most defining aspects of many Steampunk works. For example, Steampunk technology often on display is Steam-powered cars, airships, and analog computers. Typically, the technology and aesthetic shown are nearly as advanced as the technology we have in our modern world but with a distinctly retro look and feel. Steampunk also refers to an artistic style and clothing fashion that’s been developed thanks to the numerous Steampunk works out there. This style and fashion have a distinctly Victorian feel inspired by late 19th and early 20th-century design. But it also has a touch of retro-futurism thanks to the prominent display of Steam-powered designs and technology. The team's vision was to show the true Steampunk style, featuring the machinery and mechanical style along with the Victorian style of our modern times.
