Package details

Summary: An adventure game using ScummVM

A science-fiction thriller set in a bleak post-apocalyptic vision
of the future, Beneath a Steel Sky revolves around "Union City",
where selfishness, rivalry, and corruption by its citizens
seem to be all too common, and those who can afford it live
underground, away from the pollution and social problems
which are plaguing the city.

You take on the role of Robert Foster, an outcast of sorts
from the city, since he was a boy, who was raised in a remote
environment outside of Union City simply termed "the gap". Robert's
mother took him away from Union City as a child on their way to "Hobart"
but the helicopter crashed on its way, unfortunately Robert's
mother dies, but he survives and is left to be raised by a
local tribe from the gap.

Years later, Union City security drops by and abducts
Robert, killing his tribe in the process; upon reaching
the city the helicopter taking him there crashes with
him escaping, high upon a tower block in the middle of the
city he sets out to discover the truth about his past,
and to seek vengeance for the killing of his tribe.

This game was released by Revolution studio to help the ScummVM
project. However, this is not a free game ( at least not
free-as-in-speech ), even if the source code can be seen. That's why it
belongs at the nonfree repository.
