Posted by Revolution Software (Creator)

Back in August 2012 we reached out to you, our dear backers, when we launched the Kickstarter campaign for Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse. With your support, encouragement, ideas and suggestions, we aimed to create the adventure game that you would want to play. We thank you all and hope you have been pleased to have been a key part of this extraordinary journey.

Since completing the game, we have sent out thousands of rewards to our backers – our warehouse is almost entirely empty. Nearly all our rewards have been received or are in transit, and we’re thrilled with the great feedback you have given us. If, however, you have not received any of your rewards, or have not confirmed your address in the last month, please don’t hesitate to contact us, with your details, at

We’re also pleased to let you know that we plan to put together a 'wrap' video looking back at the campaign. We are also going to make up the final digital rewards: Director’s commentary and Archive Videos.

Finally, we would be grateful if you could take the time to answer a survey on your thoughts. We’d love to hear from you on what you liked, what you didn’t, what we got rights, what we can improve, and we’d like to hear a little about yourself too.

      Since Revolution Software seemingly abandoned it's Steam forums and isn't providing support to their customers there (, 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?

      Meh, not really interested in BASS2 but I'll tag along just for the ride if you decide to do that crowdsourcing-style. :)

      @Thomas Busse -- No, you're not blind... They are still missing. I do hope they will be available soon, as it was part of the rewards.

      I'm not sure if this is missing or if I'm just to blind to find it, but I think I haven't gotten the digital games design documents of the previous games (from the $50 tier: Archive of Game Design Documents for previous games). Or can someone point me in the right direction where to find them?

      @barbarian_bros: When clicking on "other" you could enter your own category! Something like platformers was also missing :-)

      let there be BASS (2) :D

    10. Ahenobarbus on

      Thank you for the great game Revolution, you did amazing job! I also hope you made some profits with BS5 and I`m ready to pledge again if your next project is heading to kickstarter too. BASS2 would be very nice ;)

    11. barbarian_bros on

      No RPG category for the 'favorite game genre' in the survey ?

    12. Thalon on

      I second the request below: now what? BASS2?
      I remember it was the ultimate stretch goal for this kickstarter, the goal wasn't reached, but I hope the sells of BSSC went well to allow you to reinvest some profits and resume the idea to make BASS2...
