When Revolution Studios unwrapped its stretch goals for its Kickstarter-funded Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse, a sequel to 1994 cyberpunk adventure Beneath a Steel Sky met our cyborg photoreceptors as a milestone for reaching $1 million in extra donations. Although only (only, he says) garnering an extra $800,000, Revolution told Develop it's forging ahead with Beneath a Steel Sky 2's creation. Why? Perhaps Revolution's staff realizes the rarity of working once more on a game with a freshwater fish acronym, but it's mostly because the original Beneath a Steel Sky is downright awesome.

A Kickstarter drive to fund a new Broken Sword adventure game went live a couple of weeks ago. It's managed to hit the $400,000 target already, so the developers are pushing ahead for a $1,000,000 goal, which would provide enough funding to greenlight a sequel to Beneath a Steel Sky.
"For many years we have wanted to write a sequel to our 1994 classic adventure. If we reach this goal we will start work on this exciting, much-demanded project, and implement Easter eggs in Broken Sword: the Serpent's Curse, offering a glimpse of this futuristic dystopia," writes a Revolution rep in the latest Kickstarter update post.
