Beyond a Steel Sky

Revolution follow up to Beneath a Steel Sky, coming out this year on PC, Console and the new Apple Aracde thing.

Not point and click like the first one, so interested to see how it goes. Seems to have taken influence from these wandering about adventure games you get. The first was a good setting and I liked the 1984 style themes so interested to see how it goes!

Wow, that's a blast from the past.

Not surprised you'd remember it given your avatar.

. .while the original’s cyperpunk point-and-click puzzle-solving has fallen out of favor in the intervening decades...
I'm not convinced an old school point and click wouldn't sell well tbh. You wouldn't sell Fifa units but it's hardly a saturated genre.

Still a market for it for me like, particularly in the smart phone and tablet market. Would prefer a point and click but doesn’t mean it won’t be canny.

Cheers for the heads up. Loved Beneath a Steel Sky as a kid (though it was quite hard for a point & click iirc) - sure I ended up getting a guide for it.

Grim Fandando was the last 'proper' point and click (though you actually moved the character about) that I played & i'd love to play more games like it.

Any recommendations?

Problem with point and click games is you often ended up using every object on everything to move on. Discworld was rank for that iirc.

Discworld was horrendously obtuse iirc. Most try to keep it fairly logical.

BASS is free online like if you wanted to give it another whirl. Loads of the classics available as well that have been remastered or re-released including Grim Fandango.

Thimbleweed Park is good, setup as an old school point and click like Monkey Island/Maniac Mansion, but in a Twin Peaks sort of setting.

Broken Sword 5 (all the Broken Swords are a must for me if you’re into the genre or haven’t played them).

Technobabylon was good, old school graphics but interesting.

The Black Mirror series was canny anarl, there’s three of them (2 and 3 are a separate story though in the same universe as 1).

Depends what you’re into really! All sorts our there.

Installed Beneath a Steel Sky again last night. Still fun :D

Managed to kill myself by opening the door to a reactor whilst stood in front of it (ah the days when you could die in a point & click) :lol:

I did play a few Broken Sword games; though my memory of them is crap, so they'd be like playing new games again.

Thimbleweed Park looks good - might get that too.

Looks similar to Day of the Tentacle / Sam & Max (is it made by the same people?)

You can die loads in BASS like :lol:

Aye it was made by Ron Gilbert who made Day of the Tentacle, Monkey Island etc.
