THIS, SO MUCH THIS. <3
There aren't enough fan-games that explore the history/backstory and more intellectual aspects of Pokemon. It's great to see changes from the usual "official" style and formula/cliches, too - and steampunk is awesmoe.
On having bugs for the starters, I think it's rather fitting thematically, and not just for the reasons you've given. Bug is often seen as one of the weaker types; perhaps that's a side-effect of advancing technology and intrusion/destruction of habitats (like Mr. Tajiri must have noticed as he grew up)? I think some bug mons would have been stronger 150 years ago, and starters are pretty powerful anyway.
Also, when it comes to growth and classification, I'd like to see some stuff on Pokemon death and lifespan. IIRC the official games haven't really delved into that - besides RBY with Pokemon Tower - so there's much that could be played with.
In any case, I'll definitely keep an eye on this, and hope that it goes a long way! :D
