Beneath a Steel Sky Remastered

Just found this on a news site.


Like the MI SE we will get a BASS with all new audio and graphics/videos this Autumn. It was one of the first point&click adventures I played and Im excited to here about this remastered version.


Heres a vid of the original version

It's a shame SCUMMVM doesn't work on the current iPhone OS 3 firmware else I'd be playing this now, guess I'll have to grab this when it comes out on the App Store as I loved the original and would be great to see the new updated artwork.

Thing they should do.
- New graphic, New voice
- Lot of save slot.
- Switch to classic function.(A MUST!)
- In game hints.

Thing they shouldn't do.
- Touch drag pointer.
- No text skip.
- Dead area that you cannot select around edge of the screen.

I would love to spend another $7 for a classic remake.
Never get enough of those.

Game are meant to play for fun...not pay for fun.

Man this is great news. I've never played BASS, but have played a few other Revolution games and have liked them. Will be an instant purchase for me.

I just hope they follow it up with the directors cut of Broken Sword that was released on DS/Wii. I've played the original but haven't got this version yet, so i'll hold out for an iPhone version.

A remake of In Cold Blood would be nice too - great game, very under rated.

Dude... the tough drag pointer actually works really well if you just get used to it.
It's actually pretty intuitive... just takes some initial patience.

And your last point... dead area... That of course is NOT an issue if you use the touch drag pointer properly.

Don't drag the actual pointer. Drag anywhere else on screen to move the pointer into the 'dead' corner and then tap ON the pointer to action.
