Steelier: Beneath A Steel Sky Sequel Planned

By Adam Smith on September 24th, 2012.

Earlier, at Revolution Software:

Jimmy Wordsmith: If our Broken Sword Kickstarter raises $1 million dollars, I’d love to work on a sequel to Beneath a Steel Sky!
Ian Programmer: I would love to do the programming. BASS is one of my favourite things ever.
Penelope Management: Haha. We only made $800,000 so forget it. We’ll all work on something we hate instead of returning to a world we love.
Jimmy Wordsmith: Or…we could just make it anyway.

Years and years and years and years ago, they joined forces for the near-legendary pointer-clickerer Beneath A Steel Sky (which you can get for free here). Annoyingly, Cecil wouldn’t say what it was as part of this rather exciting confession. “We have a number of ideas for premises and we honestly haven’t decided which road we’re going to go down. But I love writing and playing adventure games and that is what I’m going to stick to“, he told Eurogamer yesterday. DO YOU THINK IT COULD BE AN ADVENTURE GAME?
