Beyond a Steel Sky, the upcoming sequel to cult-classic adventure game Beneath a Steel Sky, gets a new story trailer.
Revolution Software’s classic cyberpunk point-and-click adventure game Beneath a Steel Sky was a significant PC hit in the early 1990s. It received acclaim for its absorbing narrative and delicate balance of humour and hard-edged realism.
The game was a collaboration between Charles Cecil – also known for the Broken Sword series – and legendary comic book artist, Dave Gibbons. They have reunited for Beyond a Steel Sky, a direct sequel that promises a “fast-paced narrative set in a dynamic game world that responds to – and is subverted by – the player’s actions.”
Robert Foster returns, this time on a journey to find an abducted child in Union City, a strangely benign utopia in a world plagued by war and political meltdown.
Beyond a Steel Sky is due for release soon, initially on PC and Apple Arcade. Here’s the new story trailer to whet your appetite.
You can also find out more about the development of Beyond a Steel Sky in a series of behind the scenes videos.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
