Steampunk is a sub-genre of cyberpunk, science fiction and historical science fantasy with 19th century-like Retrofuturism aesthetics and technology.

About

Steampunk is broadly speaking inspired by the 19th century and combines elements of this time period. Rather than featuring advanced electronic technology such as Cyberpunk, it generally features steam powered technology.

The "Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences" states the following; "Steampunk is modern technology—iPads, computers, robotics, air travel—powered by steam and set in the 1800’s." [1]

Clockpunk

Closely related to Steampunk and lesser Historical Sci-Fantasy, but generally now seen as sub-genre of it, is "Clockpunk" that focuses only on the clockwork elements of steampunk and pre-19th century aesthetics and technology.
