By itself, Verne is an excellent, well thought out and insightful product that creates a wonderful alternative world in the spirit of the steampunk genre. It reminds us that the real victorian age was nothing to long for, with it's institutional racism, classism, sexism and other unpleasant things like child labor, starvation, disease, etc. Then it creates the fantastic alternative to the reality of the Victorian era thru the lens of alternative technology and physics that allow steam, iron and brass to do things modern technology cannot.
You can recreate the worlds of Wells, Verne, Doyle, Burroughs and others. You could also create your own worlds if you want.
