    Hey all, check this out:

    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=scFkCiwivHo

    It's an Amiga classic called 'Beneath A Steel Sky', one of my favourite games of old. I'm currently looking for a way to play this on a Mac, if anyone finds one before me let me know!

    But the point of this thread is who actually remembers this game? It was made in the UK and released March 1994. Have any of you guys played it much? Im finding it hard to remember much of it but i loved it when i was a kid!

    Condiment.

    You and your cursed Macs!

    I'm wondering if it'd work in Crossover using the GoG installer for it.

    Probably worth checking out scummvm first, though :B

    The wide array of platforms supported by SCUMMVM is one of its strengths, there's even a version of it for PocketPCs. Having Beneath a Steel Sky on one's phone is an great way to pass time between lectures or at the bus-stop. :)

    I tried a replay of beneath a steel sky but the awful voice acting and monty python yorkshire accents put me off.

    Download it from abandonia.com and run it in the DOSbox DOS emulator.
