* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' -- Usually classified as Atompunk, but takes place in a retrograde enough world to qualify (a world with atomic power but without the transistor[[note]]Effectively, at least. Transistors ''were'' invented, but only a couple of years before the atomic war, so the overwhelming majority of electronics uses vacuum tubes[[/note]]).

It's actually [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in that the inefficient technology ended up depleting resources faster, thus causing the conflicts that lead to [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt The Great War]].

* Taylor Anderson's ''Literature/{{Destroyermen}}'' (2008-) series is this mixed with OceanPunk. Its titular heroes are the crew of a UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo destroyer that gets transported via a time-space rift to the Pacific Ocean of an Earth where [[AlternateHistory the dinosaur-killing asteroid never hit and evolution took a different course]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Progear}}'' (2001) has technology somewhere between UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne and UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo.
* ''VideoGame/IronStorm'' (2002) is set in 1964, in an AlternateHistory setting where UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne never ended. You'll see televisions and helicopters, while fighting in trenches and mud. Also, the weaponry is fictional but credible for alternate technology from the 1950-1960s.
* ''VideoGame/SilentStorm'' (2003) starts as a relatively realistic game focussed on managing a commando team during UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo (there are an Axis and an Allies campaign), then it [[GenreShift switches to]] a plot involving a Thor Hammer Organisation (THO), NebulousEvilOrganization supplying both sides with {{Energy Weapon}}s and {{Powered Armor}}s, in order to weaken them enough to be able to TakeOverTheWorld by themselves. Its first sequel, the expansion pack ''Silent Storm: Sentinels'', is set not long after the end of the war and features the eponymous Sentinels as a secret multinational (party members from both sides of the previous game are available) organisation struggling against THO, while the high technology is still there.

** The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horten_Ho_229 Horten Ho 229]], a prototype German bomber built towards the end of World War II, certainly qualifies both in design and function: it's been called the world's first stealth bomber. It even makes a cameo appearance at the beginning of ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder''. Many a gamer can be forgiven for thinking it was just standard DieselPunk hijinks.
