I just purchased Beyond a Steel Sky, the latest game from Revolution Software, who are best known for the Broken Sword franchise. However, since the original, Beneath a Steel Sky, came out on PC all the way back in 1994 it’s been a while since I’ve played it, and frankly, I’ve forgotten the story.
With that in mind, I set out to play through the original, which is FREE on Steam and GOG.com. I aim to finish the game in around 6-8 hours, because that’s as long as these old games lasted, but I’m notoriously bad at some of these really difficult, and often obscure puzzles.
It may not be the Cyberpunk game that everyone else is playing at the moment (I’ve finished that one), but you can’t beat a bit of nostalgia!
You can check out my progress live, via twitch.tv/tyosolo, or watch it afterward on YouTube. Below is Part 1 and Part 2 where you can watch me fumble my way through the introduction, and the mid game!
