* By the same creator as ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' is ''Manga/TheCaseStudyOfVanitas'', an example of the overlap between this and {{Steampunk}}. It takes place in an alternate nineteenth century Paris where magic and vampires feature prominently alongside steam-powered technology.

* ''[[http://www.rpgnow.com/product_info.php?products_id=23334 Broken Gears]]'' (CURS Publishing) is [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] Gaslamp Fantasy -- "a game of animistic steampunk".

It's identical to our own world at that time except for, well... [[CthulhuMythos try to guess]].



* ''TabletopGame/VictorianaRPG'' is this with a side of steampunk in an alternate 1867 (1856 in the 3rd edition). Many of the standard fantasy races are present (albeit with unique twists), and magic is still a prevalent force even with technology overtaking it.
* ''TabletopGame/UnhallowedMetropolis'', set in a future dystopian version of Victorian London.
