Frames of Preference: Beneath A Steel Sky

Beneath A Steel SkyEven though I’ve played plenty of adventure games, few have stuck with me more than Beneath A Steel Sky. Set in a dystopian future, the story follows Robert, a man taken from his home and brought to a strange floating city. It’s your typical point-and-click adventure fare, but the environments, characters, and plot revelations set it apart from its contemporaries. It was surprisingly dark for the time, and the Remastered version features interstitial art from Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons. The unique color palette and use of backgrounds to tell stories comes through in this frame.
