Retro games retailer GOG.com has slapped an added bonus onto the Director's Cut version of Broken Sword: the original, non-HD-ified version of the game, Circle of Blood. This should come as especially welcome news to GOG customer StingingVelvet, who commented in his review of the game, "unfortunately this is not the classic version that you would expect from Good OLD Games."

It looks like GOG really has wised up!

"Broken Sword is one of the best adventure games of all time," said Guillaume Rambourg, Managing Director of GOG.com. "After releasing the Director's Cut, many of our old-school gamers expressed an interest in bringing back the original Broken Sword, so with Charles Cecil's approval, we have dusted off the original and added it to the Director's Cut at no cost to our users. It just shows that no matter how much of a makeover you give a product, the classics will never go out of style!"
