Beyond a Steel Sky

Publisher Microids and developer Studio Revolution have come out with a first developer diary for Beyond a Steel Sky that focuses on the game’s art.

The team set to incorporate a comic book look, and to achieve this, Revolution wrote a custom cel-shading tool known as ToonToy. This emulates Gibbons’ hand-drawn comic book style in real time.
