Going to be the bad guy here and be honest:
NOT EVERYTHING IS STEAMPUNK.
Is there no Steam? Is there nothing tying it to the older era? It might not be steampunk.
Example - Mad Max/Modern day-styled post-apocalypse, not very steampunk, just very apocalyptic.
Cyberpunk/cybergoth - Also not very…
omg this is so exciting! Excited to do more!
