    After spending the last few years remastering there back catalog including Broken Sword - Shadow of the Templers, Broken Sword 2 - The Smoking Mirror and Beneath a Steel Sky over a variety of formats including PC, Mac, Iphone/IPad, Android devices, Nintendo DS and Wii. Revolution Software are ready to bring out a new Broken Sword game but need the help of fans to help fund it to finish. Having already developed around half of the game by themselves Revolution are now reaching to potenial funders wanting to avoid publishers after arm twisting by THQ over the last 2 games in the main series led to some poorly inspired choices such as going to 3D and wanting to make the games slightly more action packed. Going back to there roots the game will use HD 2D art and hopes to head to a variety of formats from PC, Android, IOS and have said they could look into possible console releases​
    Not usual I would make noise about kick starters but I do love me some Broken Sword games, certain some folks on here enjoy point n click games too​

    For a franchise with this many games, you'd think they would have fixed the damn sword by now.

    Anyway, the Kickstarter is already more than a tenth of the way towards its goal with 29 more days to go. If it can keep up the momentum, the Kickstarter should definitely reach $400,000.

    Lol, was there even a broken sword to begin with? I finished the Director's Cut on the DS, and I could not remember anything remotely close to one in-game.

    Anyways, I'll pitch in, not much, but I've always had this certain respect for titles I grew up with. Some sort of nagging attachment that would not go away.
