Whilst I was taking a break from my lack of internet connectivity earlier this week, I happened upon an interesting little game (during a commercial break from Spongebob, the modern day descendant of the classic Chuck Jones works). Anyways, I saw this odd little MMO, which was directed towards children, but impressed with how it integrated two icons of Steampunk - Pirates and Airships! Once back online, I headed over after doing a bit of research, and discovered a pleasant little MMO for the younger set, a nice introduction to said Steampunk tropes. Not quite sure if I would consider trying it (after all, I am a bit out of the age range of 8 to 12), but for those who have hard-studying childern in their lives, this does look to be a nice little diversion, away from the smut-ridden information superhighway (ahem... except for Steampunk blogs, of course)!
