Beneath a Steel Sky Intro name

[ Show youtube player ]

i think that this is the only Point & Click Graphics Adventure on Amiga that lack the name during intro or before to play. The first time i play on Amiga of course i knew what was his name, but pity never seen on the screen like DOS version.

Probably lack of disk space.

Aehm, the Intro was in the MANUAL !!! (damn pirates)

It was gorgeously painted by the british Comic Illustrator, Dave Gibbons.

Not saying you are a pirate but you would not believe how many people called back then just for this game alone;
that exposed pirates

THAT darn Leander platform! -_-
As partial alibi i live in a rather rural area and so not too many stores kept original Amiga software - and when they had it was kinda expensive (50.000 lire for a game like Leander) for a teenager/someone in its early twenties

The DOS title name, however, is very beautiful animation. I don't know if it was really impossible to add on Amiga version.
