About This Game

After being brutally abducted from his village in the wasteland, his village obliterated, and his kinfolk butchered, Robert Foster escapes a helicopter crash and finds himself alone save for the circuit board of his best friend, Joey, the AI he built as a child. Foster soon resurrects Joey and together they find themselves in Union City, where oppressed citizens live and work in soaring tower blocks, under the strict control of a brutal, fascist, AI dictatorship – whilst the corrupt, covetous and rich live below, shielded from the choking pollution.

In the melting pot of Union City, a not so impossible future, mankind’s worse nightmares are waiting to emerge from beneath the steel sky. It's Man against Man. Man against Machine. Man against Time.

Strangers in a strange land, Foster and Joey must survive long enough to discover the sinister truth behind his abduction - why they specifically came for him - and defeat the evil before it’s too late. It’s a terrifying threat that only you can liberate… Maybe.

Featuring Revolution's Software innovative Virtual Theatre system, Beneath a Steel Sky is a gripping cyberpunk science fiction point and click adventure game. Art directed by award-winning comic book artist Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), Beneath a Steel Sky is widely considered as one of the best point and click adventures ever written.
