Old West Steampunk is back on!
As I thought of other ideas, I kept being drawn back to this one. It's what captured my imagination, and that's perhaps the most important ingredient in this thesis project. This is a cliché, but an apt one, considering the Old West influence: I'm sticking to my guns!
Vince's concern is that I could end up creating cookie-cutter Steampunk, which isn't my intention at all. I plan to do copious research on the Old West, some on Victorian England, and much on what has and hasn't been done in Steampunk. I'll add to that a heavy dose of my own creativity to create a truly unique project.
