25 years ago, Dave Gibbons, co-creator of Watchmen, and Charles Cecil, a fledgling adventure-game developer, came together to create the classic adventure game Beneath a Steel Sky. Last year, they renewed their relationship to create the acclaimed sequel, Beyond a Steel Sky. This panel will explore the fascinating journey of the creation of the game, and what happens when the world of comic books and video games collide in terms of art style, common inspirations and references, original vision and work processes.
