I've been sceptical of cloud gaming, not just because I already have a gaming PC, and the idea of paying Google in particular for a game that's only…

Dystopic pointer-clickerer Beneath A Steel Sky is very much in the 90s PC pantheon, even if it's not necessarily the first name people reach for when turning all misty-eyed about using x on y. 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…
