Revolution Software, the team behind Beneath a Steel Sky
and Broken Sword
, is teaming up with graphic novel artist Dave Gibbons for a new title, Eurogamer
reports. Gibbons is responsible for the art and lettering of Alan Moore's Watchmen
, and is currently the artist on Marvel's The Secret Service
, written by Kick-Ass
author Mark Millar.
Gibbons and Revolution founder Charles Cecil have collaborated before, with Gibbons contributing to Beneath a Steel Sky
and providing art and a digital prequel comic for Broken Sword: Director's Cut
. Gibbons says the new game is in an unexplored area that isn't France and isn't catacombs. He'll have story input and direct the look of the whole thing, even if he doesn't do all of the artwork himself.
"It's going to be something that combines a lot of the things I'm perhaps best known for, which are a design sense and a sense of symbolism and maybe an obsessive attention to background detail," Gibbons says. "It will look like a Dave Gibbons game. There would be no point in Charles collaborating with me if it was going to look like a Joe Blow game." Not to be confused with "a Jon Blow
game," of course.
