Steampunk as art therapy for the autistic - Boston Globe

Steampunk as art therapy for the autistic - Boston Globe | Just Put Some Gears on It | Scoop.it

A pinball starts out at the top of a giant contraption, working along a copper track that curves and loops through a maze of five boxes.

 

Asil's insight:

Researchershave found that the eccentricity and intricacy of steampunk is an intense draw for people with disorders on the autism spectrum, who often excel at tasks centered around technology, mechanics, kinetics, and the understanding of how things work.

American McGee wants to create a zombie-filled steampunk take on The Wizard ... - Pocket Gamer | Just Put Some Gears on It | Scoop.it

American McGee wants to create a zombie-filled steampunk take on The Wizard of Oz. If I only had a braaaaaain.

Asil's insight:

Generally, I really like American McGee, but I don't know about this one. The Oz books are public domain now ... so I can see the appeal. But then add zombies too? And make it steampunk?  Mahhh!!! Too many genres!

March of War Dieselpunk Title Puts Players In Charge Of Story - The Escapist

March of War Dieselpunk Title Puts Players In Charge Of Story - The Escapist | Just Put Some Gears on It | Scoop.it

This is free-to-play alternate history wargaming with a strong dieselpunk 1940s vibe. The war's been grinding on for fifty years with no sign of peace. African war elephants are beating back the old European colonial oppressors, the Shogun Empire's sitting pretty in the Pacific, Latin American Juntas are holding their own, and the Soviets and the United Republic are glaring at each other.

 

Asil's insight:

They are looking for 100,000 'likes' on Facebook as part of their model.
