Revolution Software has announced the creation of a new division called Revolution Pocket. Mandated with “creating and publishing narrative-based handheld entertainment,” one of the company’s first efforts will be “Beneath A Steel Sky – Remastered” for the iPhone and iPod touch. It’s planned for a fall release. Pricing wasn’t announced.
Revolution Pocket plans to release classic titles from its back catalog along with new games. The company’s library includes “Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars,” an adventure game released for PC and PlayStation.
In a statement, Revolution Software’s founder, Charles Cecil, described the adventure game genre as “undergoing a renaissance,” and said that his company is focused on leveraging online distribution as a means of “communicating directly with our audience.”
