Broken Sword 5 — The Serpent’s Curse marks the series’ return to point-and-click. Key members of the original Broken Sword team were brought together to develop the game.

Players will join George and Nico on an adventure that spans Europe and beyond in classic 2D, hand-drawn locations. Armed only with logic, integrity and humor, will they be able to save mankind from disaster?

Broken Sword 5 features unique puzzles, deft subterfuge, cipher-solving, time-honored detective work and a curse forged by the Devil himself.

“This has been a labour of love not just for us here at Revolution but the entire Broken Sword community too,” says Charles Cecil, founder, Revolution Software. “We have been privileged to be able to make the game we’ve wanted to thanks to the generous support of our Kickstarter supporters, who really have given us the freedom to take the series to new heights.

“But this is only the beginning – we’ve a concluding episode due early next year which will complete the story of what I hope will be seen as our most ambitious Broken Sword game ever. We’re really excited to finally unveil the start of George and Nico’s greatest adventure.”

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
