During Gamescom 2013 Revolution Software decided to release the first trailer for the next installment into the Broken Sword series of point-and-click adventure games. This is the fifth installment in the franchise and this also happens to be the first new game for Broken Sword in about six years.
For those of you unfamiliar with this franchise, Broken Sword is a point-and-click adventure series of games where each one has a specific mystery / crime you have to solve. Sort of like Scooby Doo but without the hippies and dog. Back in September of last year Revolution Software hit up Kickstarter to get funding for this new game and they successfully reached their goal of $400,000. In the end the company ended up with a little over $771,000 in funding.
In Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse, you'll be helping Paris figure out the mysterious disappearance of a painting worth a lot of money. You won't be just isolated to playing as Paris though, both George and Nico will be traveling Europe to solve the mystery of the vanishing painting. While the new trailer is in French, if you don't understand that language you get to at least see some of the animation that will be in the game.
As for when Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse will arrive on Android, there is no specific release date announced just yet.
Thanks to BrokenSwordFans on Twitter for the heads up!
