There could be elements that are steampunk, certainly, but it’s more in line with these subgenres.
The one that’s truly steampunk is Bioshock Infinite. That’s the third and most recent one. I know that’s severely pedantic, but I couldn’t leave without (attempting to kindly) point that out. Also, I highly recommend Bioshock Infinite to steampunk fans! It’s an intense and wonderful game.

If you could answer any of these questions it would be much appreciated. Also if you want to include any information about your company, please do. Thank you for your time.
1. How would you define steampunk?
2. What aspects of Steampunk are you drawn to?
3. Would you say steampunk is about aesthetics or function, both? And Why?
4. What is the relationship between craftsmanship and fashion? Do you think steampunk and its designers put an emphasis on craftsmanship?
5. Do you believe steampunk is a subculture or a fashion trend?
6. Steampunk has become visible in the media, do you believe steampunk is becoming more popular and mainstream? What effect does this have?
7. When steampunk moves away from boutique shops and designers to mass production, do you think this will hurt the ideals of steampunk?
8. How accessible is Steampunk? Prices, styles, and culture wise
9. What is the future of Steampunk?

You held my interest till the very end, then, crunch. Pray tell why would anyone *want* to recreate the bad parts of an era? This makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, I have heard no one say “I want to recreate slavery (sexism/child labor/PLAGUE/etc.)!” To do so would make me question your sanity. We have a history of slavery thrust in our faces 24-7-365 of our lives (at least in the US). Is it too much to begrudge a little time away from it? The last I looked Steampunk was not about those things.
