Watchmen Artist Working On New Beneath A Steel Sky

My. What a pleasant surprise. Dave Gibbons, the artist responsible for Watchmen (the graphic novel, not the movie), is working with Revolution Software on Beneath A Steel Sky: Remastered.

Yeah. You read that right. Somebody is remaking the original Beneath a Steel Sky - one of the greatest adventure games of all time - and it's going to feature new animated sequences drawn by Dave Gibbons.

It's due initially for the iPhone and iPod Touch, but the developers say it will later be "rolling out across other handheld formats". Aside from the new animated sequences, the game will also have a revamped audio score and sound effects, and will be out sometime in the Fall.
