Beyond A Steel Sky is a Sequel to Classic 90's Beneath a Steel Sky


Quote:
Beyond a Steel Sky is a thrilling story of loyalty and redemption set in an eerie and terrifying world of AI-driven social controls. As can be expected of a Revolution adventure, the tale is woven with the studio’s signature humor, supported by legendary comic book artist Dave Gibbons’ acclaimed artistic style.

“Even after so many years, fans of the original game are still incredibly loyal and very passionate – and have remained vocal in demanding a sequel,” said Revolution Software founder and CEO Charles Cecil. “Adventure games are played by a large, diverse audience that hugely enjoys the interweaving of story and puzzles. Our approach has been to write an intelligent, witty adventure game that is wholly intuitive to play and assumes no prior knowledge of the original game or its universe. We aspire to write a modern day 1984 told through the medium of the adventure game.”

Beyond a Steel Sky is a hugely ambitious adventure in which intelligent, humorous emergent gameplay drives an edgy narrative. Very much an adventure, the game is set in a dynamic, bounded-sandbox world. A unique world that will respond to—and be subverted by—the player’s actions. The game characters, driven by advanced AI tech, are willful and motivated: their intelligent responses allow interesting, emergent solutions to puzzles and obstacles. The culmination of Revolution’s 30 years of developing adventure games, Beyond a Steel Sky evolves and redefines the adventure genre.

It’s a project that’s been on the minds of both Cecil and Gibbons for many years, but one they felt needed the right real world moment to to it justice.

“Charles and I have discussed returning to the Beneath a Steel Sky universe many times over the years,” said Dave Gibbons. “Fake news, social controls, polarized views—the world is confusing—we agreed that now was the right time for Robert Foster to take a trip back to and beyond that Steel Sky. I am delighted to be working with Revolution again.”

Key Features

• A unique, rich game experience in an bounded sandbox world, interwoven with a deep narrative.

• A story that enables players to profoundly affect and subvert the game world and its characters.

• Elegantly simple, intuitive controls that allow complex situations to emerge, offering a gameplay experience that will appeal to the novice as well as the experienced gamer.

• Custom-written cutting-edge graphics technology delivers a beautiful, real time, comic-book-styled world in HDR, and 4K to complement the artwork of Dave Gibbons.

• Original comic book vignette to be created by Dave Gibbons.

Wow file this under things that I would never guess they would make. Don't get me wrong I loved the original, just didn't think it was getting the sequel treatment due to a.) the goddamn age, b.) the niche appeal and c.) its an adventure game, a genre that is neglected to say the least.

But hey I'll definitely give this a spin.
