Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction and speculative fiction, frequently featuring elements of fantasy, that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used — usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era England — but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne.

You’ve seen ‘steampunk’ before and might not have known it. Some movies that are steampunk in nature include The City of Lost Children (1995), Brazil (1985), City of Ember (2008), Hellboy (2004) and The Golden Compass (2007) to name a few.
