THE WORLD OF STEAM.  In 2009, inspired by the writing of Jules Verne, HG Wells, Mary Shelley, Jane Austin and Charlotte Bronte, Matt King started to write stories in his own Steampunk Universe, and thus The World of Steam was born. Exploring Victorian sensibilities, amazing steam technology and modern storytelling Matt took his idea to Kickstarter, where it became the highest funded pilot ever on the platform. The material attracted the work of award winning writers, Emmy award winning designers and Oscar winning directors, breaking ground on a largely untapped side of geekdom. Now the series is in development with the Jim Henson Company and has attracted a huge following on social media and around the world.
