This is a full free download made by fans for fans of the first two Broken Sword games. It is however at the moment only available in German with English subtitles so on the initial game screen you may need to click on the ‘Optionen’ setting to alter the language & check subtitles are on.

Moving the cursor to the bar below the game screen shows the inventory. Left click on it to use an item in the game screen or with another inventory item, & right-click to sometimes reveal more about it.
In-game icons include, by left-clicking on them, mouth cursor to talk, magnifying glass to examine, cog wheels to perform an action/use inventory item, pointing hand to exit to another scene & gesturing hands to move further to the right or left of a wider game screen.
