Revolution Software Harnesses the Power of Kickstarter for New Broken Sword Game

Broken Sword

Damn it feels good to be one of those people who keeps complaining, year after year, about the lack of quality Adventure games coming out all of a sudden. This has been quite a year for both game developers utilizing the crowdsourcing giant that is Kickstarter and for adventure games. It all began with Double Fine’s Adventure game, which they decided they wanted to do, but that trying to work through the traditional publishing system would be too much of a hassle. All of a sudden that lofty $400,000 goal became a fully-funded game with $3.3 million dollars pledged for the game. There were game Kickstarters before, but none saw this level of media attention and success. From there, all bets were off.

Here we are, and here we sit with Revolution Software, the people behind the amazing Broken Sword series, announcing today that Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse is not only almost done, but that you can help bring it to the finish line through Kickstarter. For just $15 you can get in on the ground floor and secure yourself a copy of the finished game. They’ve got the whole team together and promise a game with 3D character models on pre-rendered 2D backgrounds to give the classic adventure game look and feel a bit of an overhaul. Revolution Software has spent $500,000 already on production and is looking for a last $400,000 to help bring this game to the PC (Windows and Linux) and the Mac.

So head over to their Kickstarter for more details.
