Different punk genres
I don't know if I am in the right category. I apologize if I am not. I am wondering if I have this more or less correct:
Let me split this off, I think this is worthwhile having as a separate discussion.
I don't know about Raypunk. I consider WW1 to be the dividing line between steam- and dieselpunk. Remember, a lot of dieselpunk takes inspiration from the Roaring Twenties.
I think the images work great, though! They're all good representations of the genres.
Thank you Nick. I appreciate your critique.
Cassette futurism and cyberpunk are basically the same.
The only difference is that cyberpunk happend at the time of "cassette futurism" and "cassette futurism" is invented 40 years later.
Here's a similar image:
I still think "raypunk" is a bit of an odd thing. Early twentieth century predictions of the future can probably be put under steampunk or dieselpunk. We don't need a separate genre to cover the 1910-30 period. Most of that will be dieselpunk.
Streamline, I think, should be under dieselpunk, as should Art Deco or what I like to call
. Dieselpunk isn't all dark.
And, as Yaghish remarked, "Cassette Futurism" is really just outdated cyberpunk.
