I remember that I finished it. It is one of those games that have been in the Ubuntu repos since the beginning of time (approximately) so it was a long time ago. Apart from a few iconic scenes, I don't remember the story at all. So my question is now, do I replay the Beneath a Steel Sky before this one and will I have time.

Slightly excited about this, but the minimum system requirements are beyond the capabilities of my potato. Maybe it is time to upgrade if I can't even run an adventure game!

I love graphical adentures. Revolution does make great games, and "beneath a steel sky" was one of the first games I played on linux (scummvm), so, yes, I will buy it.

I have finished it too. I remember that it has at least one annoying pixel hunting puzzle. Though as the game is pretty old, they didn't know better back then.
Spoiler, click me
I remember that there was something small in middle of the floor, I think it was some kind of factory or something.

Quite likely, but looks like it's not such a high priority. I'll be waiting patiently ...
