The pen & paper role-playing game (RPG) Space: 1889 is widely recognized as the first true "steampunk" RPG since its introduction in 1988, dealing with Victorian era people discovering a means of interplanetary travel.
The term "steampunk" was not coined until 1987 and any works to that time are considered precursors to the genre.
