* ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence'' takes place in an industrialized world, an oddity for the TalesSeries, which usually sticks to MedievalEuropeanFantasy with LostTechnology. The intro prominently shows a steam train and a steam boat, and steam engines are referenced a few times.

* ''SteambotChronicles'' (''Bumpy Trot'' in Japan) utilizes large steam-powered trots for everything (except flying, because [[spoiler:most]] Trotmobiles can't fly). The rest of the robots are powered by internal combustion engines. [[spoiler:As illustrated when fuel prices (along with others) skyrocket when the desert oil wells are captured by the Bloody Mantis.]]

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has this with the [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]], a sub-species of {{Naytheist}} elves who disappeared thousands of years before the time of the games takes place. They were master enchanters in addition to their technical expertise, adding some {{Magitek}} elements to their technology. Their ruins and creations are still up and running thousands of years later due to the Dwemer having altered the "Earth Bones," essentially the laws of nature and physics, to make their [[RagnarokProofing creations last]]. It has all become LostTechnology in the ages since, with none of the other races coming anywhere close to matching the accomplishments of the Dwemer. ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' feature Dwemer ruins prominently, as those settings had the densest populations of the Dwemer before their disappearance.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' had a vanished race of dwarves (actually a sub-species of elves) who used steampunk technology. Their clockwork robots and steam-powered cities still repaired themselves hundreds of years after the dwarves [[spoiler: misused the gigantic heart of a dead god, and caused their entire race to wink out of existence]].
** Skyrim and Hammerfell are also littered with that race's ruins, and the steam-powered magic robots still work there as well. This doesn't even get into the magical spaceships from the backstory.

* The MMORPG (sort of) ''{{Neopets}}'' has a world called Moltara, where all the Neopian denizens that hail from it live underground in huge steam and lava-filled caverns, and the theme of the world is very obviously SteamPunk influenced. There was even a plot involving it a while back.

* ''VideoGame/CrimsonSteamPirates'' is a mobile game where the Golden Age of Piracy takes place during the age of steam. Naturally, this is an AlternateUniverse, where the Confederacy [[DividedStatesOfAmerica was not re-absorbed into the Union]]. While most characters are fictional, there are a few {{Historical Domain Character}}s, including MarkTwain (an expert navigator) and UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla (designer of exotic {{Energy Weapon}}s). Most vehicles are steamships, but there are also steam ''submarines'', steam [[ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld zeppelins]], and steam airplanes, and a few left-over sailing ships and sail/steam hybrids. Being a pirate game, boarding can also take place, but only in scripted missions. Weapons include cannons, rockets, machineguns (for airplanes), bombs (for zeppelins), torpedoes (for some ships and submarines), and Tesla's {{Energy Weapon}}s.
