Steampunk PC video game recommendation - American McGee's Alice

I must admit I'm not a big fan of video games myself. There are, however, several notable exceptions. One of the prominent examples of old is Louise Carroll's adaptation of Alice in Wonderland adventures. As far as the game plot goes, it feels more like you're reading a fantastic book rather than playing a game. Game itself conveys strong spirit of steampunk - there are cogwheel-ridden steam-powered machinery and suitable environment on every game level. Amusingly enough, game's main theme is called "Flying on the wings of steam" by Chris Vrenna. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find out any more of his work besides OST to the McGee's Alice, but he is supposedly going to work on a sequel as well. It's definitely worth checking out; it should be also noted game developers were nice enough to release both PC and Mac versions of the game. You can get them at Amazon for about $10, which isn't a lot for such game.

Internet problems, will be back up this week

Alright, so it seems my connection to the outside world had abandoned me for the last couple of days, which is why I was unable to reply to your comments, which I will sort out and reply with extra effort later this week. I can only use the internet at work which is not really good idea if you want to be productive, and thus was also unable to check out modding www's you sent me before.
Take heed, though: I shall return no later than Thursday! Stay tuned.

PC modding

Alright, I got a mid-tower PC case at home. As I no longer need it, I thin I'll mod it steampunk style, but I have no previous modding experience. Anyone can recommend good modding sites and\or tutorials? I don't want to blast the whole thing due to inexperience.

Steampunk goggles - do it yourself tutorial

Something that is inseparably associated with steampunk movement: goggles. And I thinking of doing a pair for myself.

All credit goes to Fenris.

Awesome steampunk duel

Steampunk guitars

Hell, there's something I really like besides steampunk: the guitar. As a dedicated guitar player in the past, I cannot help but wish one of these toys ended up in my hands.
