Brook­myre is work­ing with UK-based out­fit Red Bed­lam, maker of MMOG The Miss­ing Ink, on the adap­ta­tion of Bed­lam. The game casts you as Heather Quinn, a col­league of the novel’s lead character, Ross Baker, who also finds her­self trapped in a game.

Bed­lam is avail­able through Steam Early Ac­cess, though a full re­lease is due soon.
