We were lucky enough to catch up with Charles Cecil, founder of Revolution Software just days after the re-release of Beneath A Steel Sky on iPhone and iPod Touch. He tells MidLife Gamer that a new IP point and click adventure is still feasible in a modern market, and that he is aiming more for the 'casual market'. He argues that whilst core gamers will play casual games, casual gamers won't play core games, and that many casual gamers are yesterday's core gamers, very familiar with adventures of old. He admits though that the commercial model is different, 'we have to bring the price down'
