It's been five years since the last Broken Sword franchise entry, but that doesn't mean Revolution Software forgot about its long-running adventure game series. The fifth entry – Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse – got announced this morning for PC/Mac alongside the launch of the project's Kickstarter page.
Rather than following previous tradition, The Serpent's Curse is a hardcore first-person shooter set in the world of Broken Sword, but a thousand years into the future after the apocalypse ravaged society. KIDDING! It's another adventure game like previous entries – a teaser with the beginning of the next game is just above.
If you invest $15 in the project, you'll receive a digital copy of the game "along with a host of bonus material." You can always invest more and get more stuff from Revolution, if that's your kinda thing. The folks at Revolution are allotting $400K just to develop their game, which needs to reach its goal by 30 days from now.
