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. By exploring glitches and exploiting clipping issues, Quinn discovers she can move between different games, but still bring with her the weapons she found elsewhere. The worlds you enter document the evolution of the FPS genre, including some playful digs at its clichés, but touches on other forms, too. At the time of writing,
Bedlam is available through Steam Early Access, though a full release is due soon.
