Screampunk CoverScreamPunk was developed into a role-play expansion of Steve Jackson’s GURPS system . . .

It is an Age of Revolution; the world has been cruelly purged . . . in fire, and blood, and steam. From the past, untold horrors wait to clutch at men’s souls. It is an Age of Invention; even the Laws of Nature must fall before the power of Progress! Sinister villains plot to use their newfound inventions against society, nature, and even God Himself! It is an Age of Steam; the most brilliant minds of the age experiment with novel, wondrous ideas – but is mankind ready for such power?

Although no longer available in print, one may acquire this dark knowledge for the mere price of $2.99 by downloading the PDF from the Steve Jackson Games website.
