So I just saw this today.
Beyond A Steel Sky was one of those classic adventure games that seems to slip between the cracks of the two juggernauts in the room (Lucasarts and Sierra). However, I was lucky to have been one of those kids who got to play it growing up. Whilst it certainly had its flaws there was a surprising charm to it and echoes of it can be felt in some future titles including a modern favourite of mine Technobabylon.
I wonder if anyone else here has played it and what do you think of the news about a sequel being made today?
Unfortunately, Beneath a Steel Sky is one of those games I missed out on. With this announcement, it looks like I need to find a copy of the original game to prepare for its upcoming sequel.
Thanks for the heads up!
Adding it to my account brought up Rise of the Dragon as a recommended game. Man - that game was fantastic if you never played it. Dynamix was one of my favorite adventure game publishers ever.
I think Dynamic at their peak for me was the backstory they did for the third Earthsiege game, Starsiege.
I have to check that one out as well.
Another one of my favorites was The Adventures if Willy Beamish. I picked it up on GOG recently and decided to go the a-hole route from the beginning. I think I reached the game over screen in as little as 3 clicks.
One minute I'm showing my detention teacher my frog Horny, the next, I'm getting my hair clipped off and bring sent to military school. 😆
Let me know what you think.
