14,032 backers pledged $771,560 to help bring this project to life.

Getting close, and it’s all thanks to YOU

Posted by Revolution Software (Creator)

We are absolutely thrilled to have passed 85% of our goal – a mighty $340,000. And we have been blown away by the generosity and enthusiasm of your comments. 

We have received so many requests from Spanish and Italian fans asking about full voice recording that we have been convinced - so are delighted to confirm that voices will be recorded in Spanish and Italian. We can also confirm that we will translate the text into Russian and Polish. Thank you for your lobbying! 

Thank you also for all your feedback on Stretch Goals. The overwhelming feedback was that you want a bigger, longer game rather than content that’s exclusive to Kickstarter backers. We don’t want to tempt fate – so will only publish the Stretch Goals if and when we do hit the goal of $400,000. We can’t wait! 

And finally… we are hugely grateful for the feedback that so many people have given. A few have commented that George’s face looked slightly different from what you expected. The model used in the movie wasn’t totally finished – we thought that you might now like to see an updated George. We hope that you agree that he looks great – we certainly think so. We will show you how he looks in the environment in a later update. 

Thank you, once again, for your fantastic support. You guys are absolutely brilliant.

      Thank you so much for Italian.
      Now I can't wait: this may rival the first episode as the best BS game yet!

      I just remembered one IMPORTANT thing: PLEASE do cursor in the game LIKE it LOOKED in FIRST TWO BROKEN SWORDS!!! It's even better if it will look like in BS1: the had on the exit and expanding areas, the gears on interaction, the mouth if it's possible to speak... But make hand cursor anyway!!!

    8. kevryu on

      Thanks for bringing back this game !!
      I'm French and I would like to ask : Are you gonna bring the original cast for recording the voice ? It would be so awesome !!!!

    9. Nicholas Sire on

      Thanks for Russian. And goodluck guys.
      P.S. United we stand, divided we fall.

      From Italy: GRAZIE!!! :)
      All of us hope that George will speak with Beccari's voice!!!!!!!!
      And yes, a longer bigger game with hand painted scenaries, dialogues (also unuseful but funny). Finally the same things as in bs1 but more and more.

    12. Roman Zaytsev on

      thanks for Russian, it's good news indeed!

      A marked improvement, George is now anatomically believable.

      New George is much better. lorenzorlandi is right, now he looks like George

    15. Arnaud on

      what is the difference between the old and the new george?

    16. lorenzorlandi on

      Oh I almost forgot: THANKS for deciding to go with the italian voice acting!!! :D
      So happy... hope you can get the old team on board, meaning Claudio Beccari (George) and Elda Olivieri (Nico) ;)

    17. lorenzorlandi on

      Didn't comment on this before because I assumed the 3D models were (are?) W.I.P, but I like the "new" George WAY more... much more resembling to the first two BS games :)

    18. jaus - Order of the Goat on

      OH FUCK YEAH!!!!

      Did I read Spanish voices again? YES YES YES!!!!!!! I can't believe it !!!! Yuhuuuuu!!!!
      One moment ago I was jumping on my bed.

      Please contract same people of Broken Sword I & II:

      Tomás Rubio= George voice
      Esther Rodríguez= Nicole voice

      Just a suggestion, that people are professionals. =D

    19. Raiden on

      The new version is much much better, though I would like to see the eyes tweaked just a little bit. I'm not quite sure if it's the spacing or what, but something seems the slightest bit off, and I think a little further manipulation would make it perfect.

      Hey do not forget about us French people :) . The actor voicing George became a legend over here among fans of the series :D

      Fantastic american accent when speaking French, it was a real delight. Do bring him back on board please!

    21. Decimus on

      He just looks way too young :(

    22. Gustavo Caetano on

      You should really have subtitles in Portuguese. Every game seems to neglect this but forgets Portuguese is the 3rd most spoken language in the west and the 6th in the whole world.

      BS is my favorite game series of all time, but it's not very popular in Brazil, since national editions usually take too long to be released.

      I can help if you need to cut spending :)

      I really prefer the older version, the new one lacks personality. But i guess the majority has spoken and they obviously want a Ken doll as George Stobbart.

      The lighting/colour looks good and it's good that he's got a fuller jaw line. Keep up the good work.
      Oh, just another wee thing to add. Disney's next animated short 'Paperman' is released soon and they have, supposedly, revolutionised the way you can blend 2D with 3D. It may be too late to have an influence on this Broken Sword game, but it could be a big factor in future games. Just a thought really and I thought I'd put it out there to see what people think (especially if they've been lucky enough to see it at any animation festivals).

      Thanks a lot ^^

    29. Martins Antony on

      I am really glad for the Italian and spanish , but what about french? Is it still because of Napoleon?

    30. Tomimt on

      Very clear improvement on the facial features, the new George looks great.

      My only real concern is that I want this game to be able to run on a laptop. I couldn't get the last Broken Sword game to run on either of my last two laptops, including one with a non-integrated graphics card. I'm disabled and can't sit at a desktop, so this is a big deal for me. I've still contributed, hoping I'll be able to play the game, but I hate that I don't know.

      The new version of George is cleary better. Good job Revolution ;)

      @ Christopher Muller : I'm sure for many french people he is THE voice for George, we need him !!

      Sean Stella on

      Love the new George, much more like it! You guys are amazing; you really are taking on board the fan feedback but also sticking with your own artistic directions and ideas for the game. I'm sure this can be the best Broken Sword yet, thanks :)

      Glenn Gräslund on

      The updated face-model for George is looking really good! Much better than the old one. Not that the old face was bad just that this new face-model is so much better. Feels more like George if that makes any sense.

    36. Christian Murphy on

      That's how George is supposed to look. Thanks :D

      Next goal : Emmanuel Curtil as French Dubber :) cross fingers

    38. Moeez Siddiqui on

      @Andrew Jones --

      Yes I love the free-roam aspect where you could talk to people in different areas and get new funny dialogue. Makes the world feel more "alive" that other NPCs are commenting on your level progression.

      @Thierry - This afternoon, I checked on the site of "a fan blog" in which was reported an interview from Charles Cecil . It was said in this interview that he confirmed Emmanuel Curtil would join the French cast as well as the German actor for the German version of the game. You can have a look at "a fan blog" on Revolution Software site.

      The new George is certainly more pretty/handsome, but the old George looked more like a regular guy. It was more of an individual look for him. But I certainly won't mind looking at him this way in the new game.

    43. S.D. on

      Backers: Windows/Linux/Mac/iOS/Android confirmed at launch. iOS versions (iPhone/iPad) cannot yet be awarded in tiers... Revolution Software is trying, but Apple is not helping yet. Android is able to be awarded, but the team has not fully investigated this yet (they are trying). EFIGS localisation, with voice actors, is confirmed *without* stretch goals. Newly, Russian and Polish text (and subtitling?) are confirmed. The team has confirmed they are already trying to contract the previous voice actors; no new information is available there. Please do not ask for any of the above! They are in-progress or already committed! :-)

      Nice change on the chin ! You did just right.
      Might I also ask for a bit of texture (?), you know, stuff on the skin to see he's older than a Teen ? That would be just perfect. ;-)

      Just like Thierry earlier, I would really enjoy having Emmanuel Curtil back for the french voice over. He's so great ! (And for us, frenchy , he's simply George himself.)

      Anyway, keep up the good work !

    49. Geri Studer on

      Please locate the game in german!!!! PLEEEAAASE :D There are so many good speakers out there in germany and the location of the previous games was stunning! so you have to keep this work up and running!
      Alexander Schottky and Franziska Pigulla were amazing as George and Nico so it would be wasted potential losing this content...

    50. Andrew Jones on

      Hey guys, One thing I'd like to see is having the option to revisit places from earlier in the story, with new dialog options which reflect what is going on in the main story, but these would be totally optional and not part of the main story.

      I remember you could revisit the cafe in the original Broken Sword, but there were no NPCs around to talk to and the workmen never came back (though I believe at some point it was hinted that he won some money on the horse that he bet on).
