Official description

Featuring Revolution's innovative Virtual Theatre system and stunning artwork from award-winning comic-book artist Dave Gibbons, Beneath A Steel Sky is a gripping science fiction thriller set in a bleak vision of the future.

Robert Foster is an innocent outsider stranded in a vast city where oppressed civillians live and work in soaring tower blocks.... while the corrupt, covetous and rich lie underground, shielded from all pollution.

Alone, save for a robot circuit board, Foster must flight for survival... and discover the sinister truth behind his abduction.
