New Broken Sword Using Kickstarter Funding

New Broken Sword Using Kickstarter Funding on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

CEO of UK development outfit Revolution Software, Charles Cecil, has confirmed that the first brand new Broken Sword adventure to grace the world since Broken Sword: Angel of Death in 2006, published by THQ, is well underway and merely needs a little helping hand from loyal fans of the series that began way back in 1996.

The first details of the project can be viewed in this extremely impressive Kickstarter video:


 

Currently the game is set for PC only as Revolution looks to self-publish a new Broken Sword for the first time, but hopefully future success will lead to possible Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions after the fantastic Wii and DS editions of the very first title. Cubed3 adored both the Nintendo DS and Wii versions of Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars (Director's Cut), saying the following about the portable edition:

Broken Sword was a classic over a decade ago and remains so today, despite many pretenders to the adventure throne appearing over the years and a few games actually surpassing Revolution Software's title.
- Adam Riley, Operations Director - 20th May, 2009

...as well as stating that the home console edition was:

This is quite possibly the best version of Broken Sword so far!
- Shane Jury, Deputy Features Editor - 21st May, 2009

Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars also made an appearance on the humble Game Boy Advance, but despite the first game selling through its entire stock shipment in Europe, the planned GBA version of Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror was not released due to publisher issues. With that reportedly complete GBA sequel never seeing the light of day, the planned GameCube version of Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon that was briefly touted by THQ never appearing, and the remastered version of the second game not making it to Wii and DS, hopefully Revolution will throw Nintendo fans a bone this time!

Be sure to throw your weight behind this exciting new project, Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse by supporting the Kickstarter campaign.

Not played either one - but if folks want this game Kickstarter is a great way for them to put their money where their mouth is. More useful than a petition because there's actually cash investment involved.

Hopefully Crytek is paying attention. If this is successful, maybe they could try this avenue to gain some seed money for TS4!

I bought Broken Sword II from GOG.com and I really enjoyed it. The art work, voice acting, and story were all great. It kind of had the best qualities of a Disney movie, but the tone was a shade darker. It also had a decent dose of history. I really hope they get their funding. This game deserves to live.

I wasn't a massive fan of BS3, but BS1, 2 and 4 are great. Really looking forward to this one!

~70% of the total reached with 25 days to go and is apparently trending towards the $1.7 million level by the time the campaign ends!
