aldenoneil | 1000 comments I really have to watch Howard the Duck again. I had the biggest crush on Lea Thompson.

Nice, I like the idea of a game where you scavenge shorelines for steampunk-y artifacts, and I've always liked Dolby's penchant for sci-fi.

aldenoneil, I salute your bravery for wanting to re-experience Howard the Duck.

Or Gary Numan to do a cyberspace/urban fantasy mashup double CD? Wait, he probably has at some point...

Curt Taylor (meegeek) | 107 comments Is anyone else from S&L exploring on A Map of the Floating Cities? It is actually pretty fun. As you get achievements you get download codes for Thomas Dolby music. Check it out, crowd sourced fantasy.

They also have a pen-and-paper RPG game available.

Noel Baker | 364 comments I had no idea there was such a thing as steam punk music. What other sort of music does it sound like? is it the similar to ordinary Punk?

They play drums, but they wear goggles while they do it.

Most of the ones I know of are more New Age and definitely not very punk like. Check out this one:
