* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': Post-Constantine Rome.

to:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': Post-Constantine Rome. Its better days are behind it, technological advancement has slowed to a crawl, and the Imperium is facing threats inside and out but perhaps [[spoiler:Roboute Guilliman's]] return may help. For more specific examples, feudal worlds or μ-class planets, as they are dependent on local agriculture and the most advance tech are black powder guns and cannons. These worlds make for little use or need but some are used to find new recruits for {{SpaceMarine}}s from the nobles and warriors and may also be a Knight World, having warrior-noble houses pilot [[MiniMecha Knights]] to defend their countries and fight for the Imperium of Man.

* The setting of the ''IronGrip'' games is a [[PlayingWithATrope mostly]] [[MedievalEuropeanFantasy feudal]] SteamPunk LowFantasy world, but it's generally hard to pigeon-hole one or even two single historical eras it resembles the most. In broad terms, it has a blend of culture, architecture, tech and overall atmosphere that wouldn't look out of place in eras as varied as TheMiddleAges, TheRenaissance, the UsefulNotes/ThirtyYearsWar, UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars, VictorianBritain, TsaristRussia, UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, [[GenteelInterbellumSetting the decades between them...]] Not only CultureChopSuey, but full-blown [[AnachronismStew Era Chop Suey]] [[RuleOfCool as well]]...

** {{Traveller}} in many ways looks more like UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire what with the British noble titles, the [[SpaceIsAnOcean nautically derived traditions]] the exploration and colonization, and the wild frontier regions. Also the relation of the Imperium to it's member worlds seems more British then Roman. Traveller also has a FeudalFuture and the nobles have real power.

* The ''Three Galaxies'' setting of ''{{Rifts}}'' has the Oni race, space-faring aliens based off a mixture of ancient and modern Japan. They have Samurai-inspired {{Cyborg}}s called Cyberai, their economy is almost entirely based off corporations called ''zaibatsu'', and their empire is known as the Bushi Federation.;

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', set in the 2030s, has strong tendencies toward this. There is a general monarchist revival, with [[UsefulNotes/ImperialRussia Russia]], [[KaiserReich Germany]] and [[UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan Japan]] (among other nations) restoring their old imperial systems of absolute monarchy; various archaic political systems, from Nazism and Communism to theocracy, enjoying their own resurgences; and, as modern society collapses, old ways of living seeing a renaissance. The setting even has an actual nation of [[LadyLand Amazons]]! The Northern Confederation, the "hero" faction of the book, implement an Articles of Confederaton-style, bare-bones libertarian republic based on yeoman farming, steam-powered rail and [[SchizoTech cold-fusion-powered airships]].

* The {{generation ship}} in ''Visualnovel/{{Analogue A Hate Story}}'' regresses from a generally egalitarian society to one resembling the oppressive Joseon era, even to the extent of reverting from from Hangul to Chinese characters.

* On ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]'', the ''Enterprise'' visited a few worlds that paralleled Earth's history. Strangely, each time they found a different explanation for that world's existence. In "Bread and Circuses" they encountered a world that mirrored a 20th Century [[HolyRomanEmpire Roman Empire]] with Christianity beginning to emerge (Kirk mentioned a theory of "parallel evolution"). "A Piece of The Action" had a planet re-enacting TheRoaringTwenties (previous Federation visitors left a book about Chicago mobs behind, and the locals made that their bible). "Patterns of Force" had a world modeled after UsefulNotes/NaziGermany (a historian tried to restore the world's collapsing society, hoping to avoid the evils of the Nazis, which went about as well as can be expected).

Despite the title of this page, this trope has nothing to do with the 1967 Moody Blues album ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Days_of_Future_Passed Days of Future Passed]]'' (where the title refers to, well, the ''present'', specifically the course of a single day in a person's life), nor the ''Comicbook/XMen'' TimeTravel story arc ''ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast'' (although in the original run of the X-Men story, some of the background details imply a degree of technological regression, such as horses pulling a bus, and that timeline had certainly regressed in terms of social equality into an extreme level of segregation and eugenics) as well as [[Film/XMenDaysofFuturePast the film adaptation of said comic that bears the same name]].
