Broken Sword Kickstarter

A new Kickstarter campaign is underway for Broken Sword - the Serpent's Curse Adventure, a new installment in Revolution Software's Broken Sword series coming to Windows, OS X, and mobiles next year. A couple of months ago Revolution's Charles Cecil said an announcement was near, which is now confirmed to be the first new game in this adventure series since 2006. There's a trailer where Cecil and animated protagonist George Stobbart pitch the project, which is returning to the hand-drawn 2D roots of the series. Here's the announcement:

Revolution Software today unveils the first details of the latest game in the phenomenal Broken Sword series – and invites fans to join the adventure from the very beginning by supporting the project through the Kickstarter crowd-funding site. Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse will be the fifth title in the much-loved series, reuniting George Stobbart and Nico Collard for their most explosive adventure yet.

The game will be available on PC, Mac, iOS and Android in early 2013 – but fans can begin their adventure now by making a pledge on Kickstarter.

For $15, a digital copy of the game will be made available on release, along with a host of bonus material. Additional rewards are available at higher tiers with the opportunity to own original Broken Sword artwork, signed game design documents, personalised drawings from the art team, personalised messages from the game’s actors, a mention in the game, a fine array of merchandise clothing and even an invitation to the project wrap party in one of the game’s exotic locations.

“The process of game development has previously been remote from our fans,” says Charles Cecil, managing director, Revolution Software. “By self publishing, we now have a direct relationship with our audience – a position that we value enormously.”

“We’re delighted that the latest Broken Sword title is to be the first of our adventures that we can take with our fans. By pledging support now, we’ll be going on a journey which will end when the opening credits roll – it’s going to be excellent.”

“Crucially, Kickstarter support will enable us to create – for the very first time – an adventure game with total creative freedom.”

To coincide with the announcement, Revolution has released a teaser video, outlining the opening moments of the game and offering clues to additional characters and content, which is available on the game’s Kickstarter page

Hmmm, watches video. Sold. $15 level. I was hoping that the $25 level would include a poster or picture or something physical. It doesn't look like you get anything physical until the $100 level.

The reward stuff is kind of confusing. They start throwing in so many digital assets that trying to understand the difference between $25 and $50 is still unclear to me. I do see that you get one Gog Game for $25 and then all the gog games they have for $50.

The art style in this looks very cool. Happy to fund them.
