As part of the Revolution 25th Anniversary Collection, which releases later this month, the long-running point-n-click developer will release a DVD containing six episodes detailing the history of their games and the work that goes into them. One of the episodes includes a segment with artist Dave Gibbons, and you can watch some of the footage in this newly released snippet.
Would you count Beneath a Steel Sky as one of the best PC games ever?
Gibbons, famed for his work on the influential comic book Watchmen in the 1980s, was the key artist on Revolution’s Beneath a Steel Sky, and in this video he explains how creating art for a comic has drastic differences to that of a computer game, but also notes the similarities in regards to building cohesive worlds.
“Over 25 years we have build a passionate and loyal community of which we are hugely proud. The collection includes extensive footage covering Revolution’s history over this time, with interviews from key team members as well as creative partners such as Dave Gibbons, Barrington Pheloung and the English voice of George, Rolf Saxon.” said Charles Cecil, CEO of Revolution.
The Revolution 25th Anniversary Collection releases on March 11th, and includes Beneath a Steel Sky as well as every Broken Sword game, In Cold Blood, and Lure of the Temptress. Charles Cecil will be at the PC Gamer Weekender to celebrate, and the studio are holding a competition with Broken Sword-themed prizes at the Revolution Facebook page.
