Beneath a Steel Sky gets sequel if Broken Sword Kickstarter hits $1 million


After hitting its $400,000 target yesterday, the Broken Sword: the Serpent's Curse Kickstarter just went up a notch. Should the fundraiser now reach $1 million then 'Beneath a Steel Sky 2' also gets greenlighted. We're used to bonuses after Kickstarter targets are reached early, but Revolution Software's is a real double whammy.

Revolution remastered the 1994 classic three years ago for iOS, but the British developer is desperate to continue the cyberpunk point-and-click adventure. With the Serpent's Curse Kickstarter approaching $0.5 million with half its allowed time to go, a Beneath a Steel Sky sequel is certainly looking plausible.

Revolution announced other targeted bonuses after getting funded yesterday. $500,000 worth of donations sees Serpent's Curse come with director's cut goodies, $650,000 brings two extra locations for George and Nico to explore, and $800,000 lets Revolution realise its "wildest ambitions" with the game. That last one is a bit vague, but our eyes were drawn to "the return of the infamous goat."
