It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Revolution Software and their exciting graphic adventure Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse. A full year after it successfully raised over $770,000 in its Kickstarter campaign, and the team finally has some progress to show off in a Gamescom trailer and an exciting PS Vita announcement.
George Stobbart and Nico Collard find themselves once again on the hunt for adventure, treasure and historical conspiracies. A gunshot in an art gallery sparks an epic journey which takes the duo to several continents, and writes another chapter in their long history of uncovering some of Europe’s darkest secrets.
Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse’s first trailer further shows off the impressive visual style Revolution Software has been creating for the game. Fans are more than excited to see the long running series make a brilliant return to 2D after the disappointing 3D visuals of the last few games, and the dry and sassy sense of humor the series has had since the beginning flows nicely with the voice acting.
Revolution Software Founder Charles Cecil is excited to be creating what he sees as the best Broken Sword game yet, and COO Noirin Carmody is excited just to be showing it off for the first time.
“For fifteen years the escapades of George and Nico have challenged and delighted millions of fans. Celebrated for its thoughtful mysteries, ingenious puzzles, loveable characters and witty dialogue, the series continues to appeal to a wide contemporary audience yearning for compelling story-driven games. We are excited to bring the latest adventure to gamescom in Cologne and show it to media all over Europe for the first time”.”
It’s been six years since the series saw the light of day, but not since the classic days of point-and-click adventures have I been so excited for one. Check out Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse when it releases on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android and PlayStation Vita later this year.
