It's been six years since the last Broken Sword game.
The Serpent's Curse is more like the first two
(Shadow of the Templars and The Smoking Mirror)
than the third and fourth
except for being in two parts.

Find out more about how the new Broken Sword
resembles the fan favorites from the 1990's in

Maybe George didn't squish Trevor the cockroach because he's going to turn out to be the criminal mastermind behind it all.
Trevor is, after all, still with us.
You were very kind to Part 1, flotsam.
Very kind.

Thanks flotsam and Jenny. Great game so far, very similar in tone to the first two. Luckily, I just managed to up my pledge with my extra holiday pay before the cutoff date, and I will now be getting that beautiful box. happydance12 Also, I saw my name in the credits under Gold Member. grin12 penguin

Thanks Jenny100 for the link & flotsam for the review. There's no way I'm not going to play this game but like Mad waiting for Part 2 to emerge first - I can't wait! taz

Flotsam, your review has intrigued me :)
The game sounds great! I look forward to playing it one day. I loved the first two games. I remember having trouble with timing in the third game. In fact I got stuck because I couldn't move fast enough and had to ask for game saves to move on, which did detract from the experience. Still very grateful for those Gameboomer saves! I'd have never seen the end without them!
