Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons and Broken Sword creator Charles Cecil once worked together to produce a wonderful little adventure game called Beneath A Steel Sky. While not the most complex of games, it was witty, weird, and difficult to forget. Oh, and the aforementioned brains behind it are back together.
Gibbons and Cecil have revealed that they’re collaborating once more for a new adventure game project, although both have busy schedules so it might take a while. Even so, this is fantastic news!
“With the new game I’m going to be involved from the ground up,” Gibbons told Eurogamer. “I have had story input and the whole thing will have my imprint on it. Even if I don’t hands-on do every bit of artwork, I certainly will direct the look of the whole thing.”
I am incredibly thrilled to hear this. If you don’t know why, then you can always try Steel Sky for yourself. It’s even free on GOG. You can download it right now. You probably should.
