Noir World

I found Noir World on Kickstarter yesterday and it sounds like a rather fun project. You can see it over at Kickstarter Noir WorldJudging by the write-up it sounds sound really versatile, going from noir to deiselpunk to atompunk and even into cyberpunk.You can also hear the game in action at the One Shot podcast.See More

Diesel Steam?

Not STRICTLY writing-related, but I feel like this is something a bunch of world-building authors might help with...I identify more as a dieselpunk with steampunk leanings. My wife identifies more with steampunk, although she's expressed some interest in various dieselpunk elements. So I was wondering if it might be possible to craft a world combining elements of both? I've been kicking it around and can't seem to find anything that "clicks." They might be too different, but I keep thinking…See More

Possible Dieselpunk Themes

Hey everyone,As the title suggests, I was wondering if anyone knows of any common themes or motifs that are usually found in dieselpunk related stories.I've been doing research on my own & I know that the most common themes include dystopian societies, emphasis on the World Wars, & a focus on fads of the era such as Jazz. However, I was hoping if to see if there any other themes that I may have missed or may not be able to find on other sites.See More

Hi, all.So, I may be slow on the uptake (I only really found out that Dieselpunk was a term about a year ago), but I've just discovered that there's another "punk" known as Decopunk.Apparently Decopunk focuses more on the clean, streamlined aesthetic of the 1930s through to the 1950s. It's all very "World of Tomorrow" as opposed to dark, dirty grim-darkness.Maybe it was just me, but my preferred form of Dieselpunk was always the clean art deco, World of Tomorrow aspect. Maybe I'm a closet…See More

Dieselpunk From Southern California

Greetings! I'm a Dieselpunk enthusiast from Southern California. I found out about the genre a few years ago, and recently decided to branch out on different places online. Subculture is something that has always fascinated me - particularly how it relates to music genres. With that in mind, I would say my favorite Dieselpunk musical style falls within the Electro Swing spectrum of genres currently. I'm interested in finding about more types of music, aesthetics, and literature related to…See More
