Le Broken Sword reappears!

1996 marks the year that I played Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars. This French flavoured point and click adventure game captures such a feeling of “Joie de vivre” that I remember it to this day.

To my utter delight I discovered that a sequel called The Serpent’s Curse is being made by the original creator, Charles Cecil from Revolution Software and that fans of the series will yet again meet up with the original Broken Sword characters, George and Nicole.

Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars was a phenomenal game. The game environment was a work of art, with the background entirely drawn by pencil and digitally coloured in with Adobe Photoshop. I remember walking down the streets of Paris marvelling at the beautifully crafted French café’s and at the depth of colour and detail around me. The quirky French humour and dialogue flavours the game like a touch of cinnamon in a latte. This game sparked my interest in puzzle solving and adventure with its deep plot wrapped around Templar mythology.

The story was written so exceptionally well that I completely lost myself in this game. Because the central theme of the game was built on the rich historical background of the Templars, it provided immensely intriguing dialogue. The combination of thought provoking dialogue with just the right amount of action set a pace that made this game the ultimate adventure for its time. As a true fangirl of the series, I can barely contain my excitement to explore The Serpent’s Curse


As a show of my passion and dedication to seeing this game realize I supported the Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse Kickstarter project. By pledging a mere R126 ($15), you will receive a digital copy of the game for PC or Mac, access to the developer diaries, video updates, access to exclusive digital content and game artwork.

According to Kickstarter, The Serpent’s Curse involves the theft of a mysterious painting, dark forces, conspiracies, a race around Europe and the company of our two heroes, George and Nicole. The project has already received $310 773 of its $400 000 goal.

Join in on the adventure before it ends on September 22, 2012.
