Revolution Studios is making a sequel to Beneath a Steel Sky, its 1994 adventure game, despite falling short of a Kickstarter stretch goal to fund the project.
During Revolution's successful Kickstarter campaign for The Serpent's Curse, the developer announced stretch goals, essentially promises to deliver more content if certain monetary milestones were reached. Revolution promised a sequel to Beneath a Steel Sky if The Serpent's Curse reached $1 million. Though the Kickstarter project topped off at $771,561, the developer is planning to make the game.
"We're delighted by the recent level of interest in a sequel to Beneath a Steel Sky and are currently discussing design ideas for this project which we plan to go into development following the release of Broken Sword — The Serpent's Curse," Revolution co-founder Tony Warriner told Develop.
According to Develop, Revolution is planning on a PC, Mac, iOS, Android, and Linux release for Beneath a Steel Sky 2. A remastered version of the original is available in the iOS App Store, and you can check out The Verge's recommendation for the original here.
