Ah yes, it's been a while since the focus on Kickstarter has been for any actual game. Today a Kickstarter popped up for the next entry in the Broken Sword series: Broken Sword - The Serpent's Curse. The goal is $400,000 and at this very moment they're well on their way to reaching $100,000 just by today's end.
In case you're not familiar with the series, let's give it a little background. They're all point-and-click adventure games which were mostly critically acclaimed at the time of release. The first game was Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars and released back in 1996. So far there have been four games in the series with the last being Broken Sword: The Angel of Death in 2006. Two of the titles were done with 3D models but the earlier ones were all 2D art. The current Kickstarter project will return to its original 2D style.
As usual, if you pledge $15 then you'll be paying for a download of the game (for Windows or Mac). Developer Revolution Software hopes to get those out by April of next year. Unfortunately if you're looking for a physical version then you're going to have to ante up $100 for the pledge level that includes a boxed copy. It looks like this latest Broken Sword is a return to form and that it will definitely meet its goal before 30 days are up.
