So what's all this fuss about SteamPunk?

Don't get me wrong, I really like the aesthetics of the SteamPunk genre.

I always have: Ever since I first saw the movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea -- and the original Time Machine -- when I was a kid.

But I've been anxious for a new and fantastically mysterious genre for a long time now.

And you know what? Magnets are just about as mysterious a thing as we're ever going to get to see in this universe: No one really understands what they are or why they do what they do. That's no small hint, mind you...

...I'm just sayin'.
