Fans of Broken Sword will be chuffed to learn that Revolution are hard at work on a 2D sequel... but they'll need your help to do it.
That's right: it's Kickstarter time!
Revolution Software are currently seeking to raise $400,000 for Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse. The money will be put towards making "the best broken sword game ever," featuring a return to the classic 2D art style and the original voice actors.
When a mysterious painting is stolen during an armed raid on a Paris gallery, George and Nico are thrown by chance into the investigation together. From Paris to London and beyond, the trail becomes a race against time as dark forces from Europe's turbulent past are woken from their slumber. Broken Sword characters old and new are encountered - but who can George and Nico trust? The journey they are on reveals a conspiracy as old as the written word, whose ancient heresies will cause innocent blood to spill once more...
So, once again, it's time to put your money where your mouth is.
