Good Old Games & Broken Swords

The Good Old Games Forums offer what they are characterizing as a "surprise release" of Broken Sword 2: The Smoking Mirror, as they have expanded their distribution agreement with Revolution Software. They say this release on their DRM-free marketplace will be followed shortly by the release of Broken Sword 3: The Sleeping Dragon. Word is: "The Broken Sword series introduces gamers to the adventures of George Stobbart and Nicole Collard, pushing players through gripping plots based on history and mythology. Broken Sword 2: The Smoking Mirror uses an upgraded version of the renowned Virtual Theatre game engine developed by Revolution Software, and Broken Sword 3: The Sleeping Dragon is based on a 3D graphics engine using a direct control mechanism. Both games will be available at the incredibly low price of $5.99 DRM-free and fully compatible with Windows XP and Windows Vista."

Didn't 3 originally have Starforce or some other nasty brand of DRM? I'm a big fan of 1 and 2, but I seem to recall something like that being the reason I never got the third one.

The U.S. Version of BS3 had Starforce, the EU version Securom.

The UK version of the game and the trilogy version of BS3 didn't have starforce. I think they had the lesser of the evils at the time, SecuROM.
