Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse fundraising, Revolution Software promised that if the game reached the $1M mark in donations, it would develop Beneath a Steel Sky 2. Even though the goal was not met - it reached $771K, almost double the $400 minimum goal - the developer has announced it would be going ahead with the sequel anyway.
Beneath a Steel Sky was a 1994 point-and-click adventure game set in an Orwellian future.
"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," the developer revealed in a press release.
“We're deeply touched that our Steel Sky fans are as enthusiastic today as they were when the original game released in 1994."
Beneath a Steel Sky 2 will be released for PC and Mac, as well as mobile devices. A console release is possible should interest be there.
