Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse - Episode 1 Summary
If it ain't broke, don't fix it..
Revolution Software are celebrating their 25th Anniversary with a special collection of the company's full catalogue of adventure games, including the Broken Sword series, Beneath a Steel Sky, Lure of the Temptress and In Cold Blood. The ‘Revolution: the 25th Anniversary Collection’ will be released on the 11th March, 2016 at a price of £29.99 / €39,99 exclusively for the PC.
Lure of the Temptress, Broken Sword and Beneath a Steel Sky are pillars of the Point and Click genre (Sorry In Cold Blood), which we've all played a countless amount of times, so why would we want to pick them up again? There's actually a very good reason to buy this, as it's not just a quick collection of the games put together by Revolution Software, it also comes with an extensive list of physical and digital collectables.
CEO and creator of Broken Sword, Charles Cecil, has warned everyone to brace themselves for "catastrophic Kickstarters within the next year," saying many underestimate funds they need.
He says the crowd-funding platform was a "great tool two years ago," thanks to it being fresh, but time is catching up. Broken Sword 5 raised $771k frombut it covered less than a third of costs.
Revolution Software has confirmed today that Broken Sword 5 - The Serpent’s Curse will be released worldwide for the PC on 4th December, 2013. The developer also revealed that the series will, for the first time, take a episodic route with two episodes, concluding in January 2014.
Revolution Software has been talking about a release date for Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse, which has been in development for the last two years and is due to be released for the PC and other platforms.
There's no solid date to mention at the moment, but Revolution Software are hoping to get it out before the end of the year.
Revolution has announced that the fifth game in the series, Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse, would be "approaching alpha" soon, and determined the game would be getting a late 2013 release on PC.
