1. Re: Broken Sword 5 Episodic; First Episode Next Month Nov 5, 2013, 17:20 Sho
One of their people explained on his blog that they're doing the episodic thing mostly so they can deliver something to backers before Christmas rather than delay the whole game into next year. Seems OK to me. All the backers get both episodes anyway, and a 1 1/2 month gap between episodes doesn't sound too bad given they're saying the overall game is as long or longer than Broken Sword 1 was (a fairly long game by today's standards). And I'm used to episodic from Telltale, King Art and other adventure studios these days, I guess ...

I suspect there might actually be a tech reason as well, though. I know from the same blog that they've been struggling with size limitations on the mobile releases (their source art is 4k res, so they could even do proper retina versions for the high-end tablets). Splitting it in two should help.
