Game description

Revolution's second chart-topping game is a wry but powerful drama set in a bleak near future. To create the claustrophobic world of Union City, Revolution joined forces with Dave Gibbons, a respected comic book artist. Dave designed the background layouts and also created a graphic novel as the introduction to the game.

The game told the story of Robert Foster's search for his father, his name and his identity. With his seriously wacky companion, Joey the droid, Foster's journey takes him beneath the City to confront its secret and his past.

Best Adventure category in the British Golden Joystick awards 1995.
