Roll The Drums! Sound The Trumpets! Here comes the news that all of us have been waiting since long time!
Revolution Software announced the Kickstarter project for the funding of Broken Sword-The Serpent's Curse, go and support the game HERE!

Quote:
Revolution Software today unveils the first details of the latest game in the phenomenal Broken Sword series – and invites fans to join the adventure from the very beginning by supporting the project through the Kickstarter crowd-funding site.
Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse will be the fifth title in the much-loved series, reuniting George Stobbart and Nico Collard for their most explosive adventure yet. The game will be available on PC, Mac, iOS and Android in early 2013 – but fans can begin their adventure now by making a pledge on Kickstarter.
For $15, a digital copy of the game will be made available on release, along with a host of bonus material. Additional rewards are available at higher tiers with the opportunity to own original Broken Sword artwork, signed game design documents, personalised drawings from the art team, personalised messages from the game’s actors, a mention in the game, a fine array of merchandise clothing and even an invitation to the project wrap party in one of the game’s exotic locations.
“The process of game development has previously been remote from our fans,” says Charles Cecil, managing director, Revolution Software. “By self publishing, we now have a direct relationship with our audience – a position that we value enormously.”
“We’re delighted that the latest Broken Sword title is to be the first of our adventures that we can take with our fans. By pledging support now, we’ll be going on a journey which will end when the opening credits roll – it’s going to be excellent.”
“Crucially, Kickstarter support will enable us to create – for the very first time – an adventure game with total creative freedom.”


To coincide with the announcement, Revolution has released a teaser video, outlining the opening moments of the game and offering clues to additional characters and content, which is available on the game’s Kickstarter page: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/165500047/571759710?token=82310820

There is only one word to add: hooray!!!!!!!

Thanks, Carla smile

I'm definitely contributing yes

But I'm really disappointed that $100 is required to secure a disk version. [Much too expensive for me rolleyes]

Thanks, Carla! I pledged! happydance woot rah

Mad, I know what you mean about the box version. I probably won't be able to get it either because it's so expensive. frown I'll have to wait and see how many hours I'm getting next month, but if it's anything like this month, I'll have to settle for the 15 dollar level. Hey, at least the game is DRM free. thumbsup

Truth is, the extras that come with the tiers are costing the developers the bulk of the money they are supposed to be using on making the games. I believe the newer kickstarters will be more in tune with what is needed to be successful by learning from others that have completed funding. Physical copies cost a whole lot to make and send out.

I've often wondered why they offer all those extras. If people want the game to be made, surely that means more to them than T shirts and mugs and a life-size replica of George Stobbart or whatever they're using for bait. I honestly don't get it.

Agreed Gil!

There is an excellent article on how the money went on a big game funding and I can't find it at the moment. When I can remember where it was, I'll post the link. It explains alot.
