The American Patriots battle the Red Coats with airships and steam tanks in Steam Patriots, Noble Beast’s newest interactive book app project that merges American History with Steampunk. Now on Kickstarter!
Steampunk meets the American Revolution with Steam Patriots, a series of stories now being produced as books, ebooks, interactive apps and audiobooks.
The Steam Patriots website:
“As we get closer to our Kickstarter launch we will continue to release behind-the-scenes interviews with Richard Monson-Haefel the producer of Steampunk Holmes and the forthcoming Steam Patriots.
In this interview Richard talks about the importance of quality over everything else. “It’s that dedication to making something that is really good rather than something really fast that can make you a buck” that drives his team.
Stay tuned as we count down to the launch of the Steam Patriots Kickstarter project this month!”
30 Manuscripts Out of the Blue
We are excited to present the first in 11 short interviews with Noble Beast Producer, Richard Monson-Haefel, discussing the Steam Patriots project.
In this video Richard talks about discovering the treatment for Steam Patriots and why Noble Beast decided to publish the series.
Stay tuned as we count down to the launch of the Steam Patriots Kickstarter project this month!
New Art Released for Steam Patriots Interactive App Project
As we near the launch of our Kickstarter project we thought it was time we showed you one of Patrick Arrasmith’s latest works for Steam Patriots.
Depicted here is Benjamin Franklin test firing his newly invented Lightning Gun accompanied by his protege Felix, the protagonist of our new series. Will this test result in a new weapon for General Washington’s arsenal, or will it end in disaster? The lightning rod is getting terribly hot and what is that high-pitched sound coming from the steam generator on Ben’s back?
We are so excited to be working with Patrick Arrasmith on this project as we look forward to another 16 pieces of art work - over the course of the next 6 months - for just the first of five installments of Steam Patriots. Of course that is only going to happen if we make our Kickstarter goal which will be announced in a few days. Stay tuned for more about the wonderful adventures of Felix in Steam Patriots and more glimpses of Patrick’s art!

You heard us right! Noble Beast, publisher of Steampunk Holmes, is partnering with award winning Shot In The Dark Mysteries to bring you a murder mystery steampunk cosplay game! The game will be released in 2013 and will be sold by Shot In The Dark Mysteries and Noble Beast Emporium.
What is a Murder Mystery Game? A Murder Mystery Game is a party style game that is played at someone’s home. Murder Mystery Games are usually designed to be played with 2 to 20 (or more) of your friends. During the game guests and the host will take on various roles of suspects and investigators as they attempt to solve the mystery by asking other guests questions. Players are invited to attend the party dressed as, and ready to play the part of, one of the suspects in the game. It can be played along with a dinner or cocktail party. It’s like Sleep No More, but steampunk, and at home.
So, now you won’t have to wait for a CON to get dressed up in your steampunk regalia, you can throw a Murder Mystery Party specifically designed for the Steampunk fans! How cool is that! Stay tuned via Twitter and Facebook for more information in the coming months.
