Hi everyone! Forgive me if I am uninformed but didn't Master Cecil say in an interview around Xmas last year that he would be making a game reveal at this E3? Did he or has it been postponed? Thanks, really happy w/ how Broken Sword 5 turned out and awaiting what the crew @Revolution do next! Planning on buying it again but this time for xbox one! :) (although I never got round to completing the more ambitious 3 and 4 in the series, might complete them first!)
Hiya Damian, do you mean the extra games on GOG? (All Revolution Games titles on GOG.com: 'Broken Sword 1 - 4', 'In Cold Blood', 'Lure of the Temptress' & 'Beneath a Steel Sky' (PC only) • ‘Broken Sword Silver Member’) have you signed into GOG?
Hey Broken Sword fans :)
Did you know a funny adventure game which is almost a parody of Broken Sword got recently released on Steam?
Check it out, I had great fun with it :) There's also a demo available!
I backed a number of projects a while back, this being one of them, but then left kickstarter and they went out of my head. I'm a $50 backer for this project, how do I go about getting the game/extras now? Thanks.
That's cool Tony. Saves me a couple of quid on B&B's lol.
@Exoddus I drive a police car. Feel free to jump in and shake my hand ;)
I'm not sure as I was on the top floor of a double-decker bus going from York race course back into York centre. I had quite a lot to drink at the time too! Lol. I could only really see the top of the car and Charles looking rather angry being stuck in all the traffic! I did a double take and couldn't believe it.
If I was down on the street walking. With all the alcohol in my system. No doubt I would have jumped on the front of his car so I could shake his hand! Oh well, I'll be going to the York Dante festival next year. So better warn Charles that if a drunk guy wearing a suit jumps on his car while he's stuck in traffic next year during the horse racing. He'll know who it is! Lmao.
I knew it was him! Tony confirming he drives a dark green car cements it. I would have loved to have shaken his hand. Better not tell me what car you drive Tony! Lol.
He does drive a dark green car! What sort of car was it? :)
I went to York a couple of days ago for the 3 day Dante York horse racing festival. I've never been to York before and thought it was a wonderful city. Anyway, I was on a bus going from the race course into York city centre.
Looking down when stuck in traffic. I swear I saw Charles Cecil opposite stuck in traffic. If it wasn't him he has a doppelganger in York!
Does anyone know if Charles Cecil drives a dark green car?
Time to start this awesome game from scratch again I think!
Happy New year to you all x
Hi Steet, i had a message from fabrice about the game he was making, looks great doesn't it x
I've found out an adventure game "Demetrios" currently on Kickstarter!
It's similar to Broken Sword and made by only one person! Charles Cecil said it looks impressive! Maybe some of you would like to help it!
I wonder what game rev will release next ? :)
Hello Sara xx
Hey Goats, how are you all? :)
I just got this comment on the Facebook page:
Hi Charles - we're currently working on adding the updates to the game from the PS/Xbox release to steam/GOG versions of the game. Unfortunately Sony / Microsoft do not provide codes in the way that the PC digital retailers do so we will be unable to send these to our backers unfortunately.
That would be cool if we got a free update to reflect what everyone else is getting. I'm pretty sure we won't be in the credits for the console versions
Since Revolution Software seemingly abandoned it's Steam forums and isn't providing support to their customers there (http://steamcommunity.com/app/262940/discussions/0/615086038687405338/), my original question and some more:
1. Is announced a while ago 'enhanced version' of the game (additional animations and audio being mentioned) for PS4 and Xbone also being released on PC?
2. If it's not, why?
3. Will the Kickstarter backers and/or all previous buyers going to get it in the form of free update to the product they already purchased on PC once it gets here?
4. If it's going to be released on PC, are both versions getting merged together allowing new buyers to experience both (like it was with Trine and it's Enchanted Edition), new version will surpass the older like it was a simple patch or will it be released as if it was a new standalone product?
5. Will the older version be discontinued and removed from sale if enhanced edition was released as standalone product?
I have not received the final physical rewards, although i did confirm my address in May. And Catherine isn't replying to my emails :(
Still not received my physical reward NOR a reply to any attempts of communication on my part.
I still not got chest, rest of reawards or reply from Catherine
@Joe - I've not received the collector's chest either, yet.
I've still yet to receive my final physical rewards....bit confused as to what has happened really.
For those still lurking around here: check out Dave Lowe's KS for a retro-gaming music CD containing Beneath a Steel Sky's main theme and many other great tracks: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/124468523/uncle-art-a-temporal-shift/
now we could help shenmue 3!!! all my favorites games on kickstarter! kickstarter.com/projects/ysnet/shenmue-3/
@anjali -- Which pledge did you choose ? It's really strange you didn't receive anything...
Not a troll i was just asking if more games were just the games then the physical rewards wouldn't be take up so much money
sorry for the confusion
Not a single physical reward. I really dont know what to do anymore. its been over a year of me sending mails and following up on the rewards. Its been so long, the joy of backing this project has completely gone. I have no issues waiting if i was given at least an idea when to expect the things that i paid for.
WTF Charles. Are you a troll? You backed this game yourself. You know that game was already published long ago.
Thanks geek I can't wait till the game comes out
What's going on? Still haven't received my final rewards.
@Charles.... eh, what? That game was funded 3 years ago and was published last year.
So, no you can't pledge at all.
You can simply buy the game.
Is there a way of pledging just for the game and having no extra expenses for the fluff stuff
@GeekJen: Thank you for the pictures!
I'm sure they underestimated the costs and this often happens with Kickstarter projects. Project creators tend to make promises to reach their goal and then they add all kind of stretch goals to attract more backers and higher pledges.
In the end the game/software alone costs a lot more money they thought and then they also have to produce all kind of different physical goods and handle them which is a lot of work for sure.
Regarding Revolution Software: It was a worthy try and of course not everything went perfect. But I am not disappointed and I will support them again should there be a new campaign. I'm sure they've also learned a lot from this experience and will make it a lot better next time.
Not even the Templar pendant looks like it was announced. On the photo it looked antique, quite real. Just nice. The actual reward looks cheap and tacky.
Personally I can live with the "Art of Broken Sword" (instead of the "History of Broken Sword"). Quite happy with it.
I pledged 717.77 Dollars. 150 for someone else (gift), 567.77 for myself. And I regret it a bit.
Yes, I like BS5 and will probably pledge again for BS6 if possible.
I have the impression they over-promised and underestimated the costs and required efforts and tried to cut corners.
Still a huge fan of Revolution and Broken Sword. Just a bit disappointed.
@GeekJen -- Are you really surprised ? The same happened with "History of Broken Sword"... But apart me and a few backers, nobody said a word about this "artbook",which was everything but the promised one.
Nearly all "high" backers don't seem to care about what they have paid for... As far as I'm concerned, I didn't give 250$ to Rev because it was Rev ; I gave them to have a great adventure game with promised rewards. Unfortunately, I have to say I've been disappointed on both sides :-(
Hope that helps.
Someone got pictures of the chest? Want to know how it looks like :-)
Any other knight commander here who is a bit disappointed with "Nico's" notebook?
Quote Kickstarter Update #13 : "This beautiful "La Liberté"-branded item is signed by Nico and filled with clues and quirky contents - includes items such an incriminating café receipt (you will understand when you play the Serpent's Curse). To top it off, each book will be numbered and contains a hand-written secret from the game, completely exclusive and unique to that one copy. This one-of-a-kind treasure is an irreplaceable addition to any collection."
Books are not numbered, contain only small screen cap print outs, no unique hand-written secret's, etc. It's a "mass"-produced little book. Nothing else. It doesn't even look like as advertised.
Haven't got mine yet, so they're obviously savin the best til last lol.
But glad people have teceived theirs and love them! @BigD glad you got yours mate, i reckon they sent international out first so people aren't waiting so long :)
I received the last rewards as well today! The box is awesome, and I can't wait to peruse through Nico's notebook!
Thank you Revolution!
The remainder of the swag showed up today and it looks great. The box is nice and sturdy, the signed stuff is awesome, Nico's notebook looks great (it is too late to read it all tonight) and the OOTG swag is awesome.
@P-Bob: That's awesome!! :) Can't wait to get mine now. :D
Yes I believe that's it for BS5 rewards now, unless you have any add-ons outstanding?
Just need news of the next project now ;)
Postman rang the bell at my door Thursday morning. Luckily I was a) at home due to something else and b) I was up and about so went to open the door. I had to sign to get a large box. When taking over the box I noticed it was very light. I thought "wow, they must have put in a lot of packaging". At that time I hadn't found any indication of the sender yet. Flipping over the box in several fashions I finally found the sender information: Revolution. :) Packaging wasn't around the BS5-box as much was IN the box: bubble-wrap galore. So, I have now removed the BS5-paraphernelia littering around on my shelves and put them in the BS5-box. Note of trivia: there's another collector box nearby the BS5-one but that one has a limited edition certificate and is much heavier. So, unless I'm mistaken, that's the final delivery of BS5-stuff I'm going to get, end of en era, sort of. If I still had some indication of OOTG-membership in my profile, this would be the time to remove it, but that has passed several projects ago already.

@Black_cocoon: Oh yay!! They're on the way to people?! :D
I can't wait to get mine, now I need to make a special place for it somewhere haha. :)
Just got the collectors chest! It is great (especially for a paper product)! Large enough to hold all my rewards (two game boxes + shirts and all the other stuff) - good idea to make the top even higher so that you have extra space when something needs more space than is available by the height of inner box ! Nico's notebook is really great too! - so glad Rev went with the box instead of the bag ! The only thing that still annoys me a little bit are the wrappers for the game box - would have been so much nicer if the box was printed on instead of these sheets flying around. Nevertheless, everything fits very nicely now in one place and the chest itself really is a eyecatcher and has already a special place in my room - makes you lust to travel =) Maybe I'll build one own out of leather or take a large box and make some kind of travel chest out of it (just in that style) :-)
Still haven't played the game yet too. I keep it for a special winters week and the right mood.
@Victor: Hi you best email email@example.com for help on this. You should have got emails with backer access to your rewards and codes. I know a few people had to get emails re sent and addresses changed last year for rewards.
