''V'' has the ''Empires of the Smoky Skies'' scenario, which lets players control FantasyCounterpartCulture European nations in an alternate 19th century. The research tree is completely redesigned, starting from Steam Power and including techs such as Analog Computation, a Sky Fortress and Perpetual Motion.

* ''We Happy Few'' is set in a dystopian alternate reality where it's 1964, but everything is in a retrofuturistic steampunk style. In this timeline the Nazis invaded the British Isles, and in order to stop them the British did "a very bad thing"; so bad, the population is now mandated to take a drug called "Joy" which erases unpleasant memories.

* ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'' {{Verse}} - especially [[PS3 current-gen]] installments - includes visual themes [[RecycledInSpace not unlike]] Steampunk. All the futuristic machinery is [[ShinyLookingSpaceships pretty shiny]], but rough around the edges. Newly-released [[MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight Crack In Time]] is a prominent example.

* ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' is set in the floating city of Columbia, which was made as flying monument of American Exceptionalism, and a secret superweapon. The inhabitants live in a Edwardian Era steam punk society, mixed with some bits from the modern era, which are taken from tears that lead to alternate worlds. However, it's definitely deconstructed, as most of its inhabitants are as racist, bigoted, and narrow-minded as people were in the RealLife period that it's based on, if not more.

* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'' has a very SteamPunk art design. Protagonist Corvo wears an elaborate mechanical mask, and carries a clockwork heart accessory. The non-player characters also wear very Victorian-style wardrobes. A spreading plague (not unlike the one that affected the UK during the era) is central to the plot. However, rather than steam being the dominant power source, the game world instead runs on whale oil.

* ''LunarTheSilverStar'' has this with a giantic BaseOnWheels called the Grindery that serves as the final dungeon (subverted in the remake ''SilverStarStoryComplete'', in which it is magic powered). There are also a number of steampunk enemies, including a boss called the Dragon Tank.

* In ''VideoGame/GemsOfWar'', the kingdom of Adana is a steampunk-ish zone in a world which generally isn't. It's more technologically advanced than the other kingdoms, and its units are often mechanical (e.g. the Flame Cannon or the Steam Turret) and/or armed with guns (e.g. the Musketeer).
