Beyond A Steel Sky’s hacker tool is the best toy ever

Beyond A Steel Sky is a 3D point-and-click adventure game which is the sequel to 1994's 2D point-and-click-adventure game Beneath A Steel Sky. It doesn't matter if you didn't play the first one, although some knowledge is helpful.

With a creative team that included Broken Sword's Charles Cecil and Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons, while its puzzles don't exactly stake a claim to immortality, its oppressive vision of tomorrow certainly…

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…

BASS Fishing: Revolution Tease Beneath A Steel Sky 2

As we mentioned yesterday, Broken Sword developers Revolution reached their Kickstarter funding to make a fifth game in the series. And as expected, they later revealed their stretch goals. They're what you'd expect - a bigger, more elaborate game, more locations, more scenes, more puzzles, going up to an ambitious $800,000 - double their original target. But then at $1m, the top tier, there's a…
