    Very true, and just starting to think about various locations gets my imagination racing, for example Aztek-themed, with lots of warring factions -
    or a story-driven RPG set in the Inca empire, hell they even had running couriers!

    Not to mention Africa, such as Songhai Empire, or again, something more story driven set in any remote African location, like deepest Congo or Zulu lands

    (And of course, middle eastern locations, as have been mentioned before, my favorite setting being Sumerian)

    It's not exactly what you're looking for, but there was an adventure game based on the books Rendezvous with Rama and Rama II (though it's sort of like a reboot in that it takes place during Rama II and the ship in question is Rama II, but the first Rama ship, and by extension, Rendezvous with Rama, didn't come to our solar system and Rama II is treated like Rama I.)

    Here's Ross Scott of Freeman's Mind fame covering the game.

    The idea you mentioned sounds a lot like World of Darkness setting.

    Discworld Noir? While it is not in the real world, it is "Detective Noir style" inspired. A bit old now.

    Sounds a bit like the Fables comics and Wolf Among Us by Telltale Games.

    Would love to see a modern update to the Spelljammer game setting. Would love to play a new video game set in Spelljammer. Like ( a modern XCom meets Pirates) take on this old gem for example.
