Update #1

Wow! You guys are AMAZING!

Wow! Everyone here at Revolution is totally blown away by the amazing response and the affection of the comments posted! In less than a day, we have nearly managed to reach 40% of our target! A few people have asked for an indication of the final look for the characters - this is what we currently have, although we are still working on our graphics technology.

Thank you so much for your support!

      Creator Andrew Hadland on August 29, 2012

      Location location location more of these please and after that characters. The world map idea is great and having more characters to interact with will make those locations more intresting even if the dialogue is pointless to the story. It stops the game being too linear. I would leave console editions as a long term stretch goal as its crucial to get the PC version right as that is where the hardcore fans of the game are. Wasn't keen on the easter eggs been in. Thanks for all your hard work at revolution for making this game happen and its great to feel that through kickstarter we are all helping to create it. Although its vital that you guys decide whats best for the game.

      I have to say I also would rather like to see true 2D-characters as seen in parts 1 and 2. I do love the backgrounds, but this pseudo-3D-characters (no offense) just don't look nice to me.

      I am over the moon about the fact that you are making another stunningly beautiful hand drawn 2D world.
      The art in the BS games is, in my opinion, right up there with the best I've seen in this kind of game genre.
      Keep up the awesome work guys!

      Congratulations Charles and the team; great effort so far. I have such fond memories as a kid of the first two broken sword games ever since I chased that clown down the sewer in Paris. Broken Sword 2 was the first game I bought with my own money, saving up all through the summer holidays just to see what adventures George and Nico would be playing - 15 years later and I'm just as excited as I was when I was 11.

      Creator Gabriel Goldsztajn on August 24, 2012

      The first Broken Sword was one of the last adventure games I played, and certainly is one of my top give adventure games ever. With my interest in adventure gaming rekindled by the various projects in here, I am extremely happy to support companies like yours, that provided me with so many fond memories.

      As for looks, both the video and this screen look great, but the faces are missing a lot of expressiveness at this stage. Since you guys are re-adopting the 2D look, I think you should try to further match characters to their looks on the first and second games in the series.

    48. Missing_small

      Creator Marc Kratzer on August 24, 2012

      Can't wait for the game!!! Huge fan of the series from the very start!
      The background and everything look exquisite as always!
      However, in my opinion, the 3D models there are a little to clean, to plain.
      I would prefer real 2D anyway, but I guess you won't change that back now that you have come so far..
      Anyways, looking forward to a new excellent entry in the series!

      I also grew up playing broken sword. I remember back in the days when we got our first computer running Windows 95 and along with it came this demo disc full of games, one of them being broken sword shadow of the templars. Ever since I've loved every broken sword and missed the 2D animations so it totally made my day to hear of the new broken sword 5 AND in 2D. Can't wait!!!
