Theme: Dieselpunk

Group Description

Dieselpunk is based on the aesthetics of the interbellum period between the end of the World War I and the beginning of World War II. This sub-genre of Steampunk is sometimes named Decopunk, referring to the Art Deco art style (including its Streamline Moderne variant). The genre combines the artistic and genre influences of the period (including pulp magazines, serial films, film noir, art deco, and wartime pin-ups) with postmodern technology and sensibilities. In short: sci-fi looking as if created in 1920s-1930s.

First coined in 2001 as a marketing term by game designer Lewis Pollak to describe his role-playing game Children of the Sun, dieselpunk has grown to describe a distinct style of visual art, music, motion pictures, fiction, and engineering.
