While the outdated ‘berg seems way more pleasing and opulent than one may keep in mind, it shortly turns into clear that corruption and hazard nonetheless lurk behind the utopia’s vibrant lights and starry-eyed guarantees.
It has been an extended street to launch for Beyond a Steel Sky. Originally introduced again in March 2019, Beyond was pushed again to an “early 2020” launch window. To see it abruptly pop up out of nowhere is a bit of surprising, however given the pedigree of expertise concerned in its growth – together with unique designer Charles Cecil and artist Dave Gibbons – will probably be fascinating to see what this sequel brings to this traditional franchise, 25 years on from its days of disc-swapping glory.
