Steampunk according to AlterSteam

Born as a literature genre, referring to the novels of first science-fiction writers, cyberpunk antagonist. And, as this what we call nowadays science-fiction began in the Victorian Era, plot of many steampunk writings is located in that particular period. But it's not a rule; moreover, it shouldn't be, because steampunk was designed to show us THE FUTURE in the way Victorians expected it. How the world would look like if everything was mechanical instead of digital; a steam-powered computer or a clockwork iPod? But what does it mean "future for Victorians"? I say, what was FUTURE for them is PRESENT for us. IT'S NOW. Just in an alternative reality. And that's why we are here and our name is - ALTERSTEAM.
