Broken Sword Backer Account coming soon

Posted by Revolution Software (Creator)

Hi all,

Thank you so much for your patience. We know many of you have been waiting for the next update, wondering when you will receive your codes, when we will ask you for preferences, shipping details, etc. We are working on a solution: a reward management page for all of our backers - Kickstarter and PayPal alike.

The Broken Sword Backer Account will enable you to view your pledge, update your shipping address, indicate which t-shirt you want, specify the name you would like in the credits, pick up your codes, access the backer-only forums, and much much more. Please bear with us while this is being finished - we want to be sure that it functions correctly. This will go live next week - we will email everyone with details once it does. 

In other news: Charles and Noirin are on a short research trip to the Middle East next week - they won't say where, except that it is close to the border with Syria. The plot thickens...

      Anyway, guys, just a small spoiler to u guys, the backer page is up. But strangely enough, i dont see nico add-on? Or maybe i was just remembering something else. Hopefully u guys will receive a mail from them soon.

      You guys will be getting an email from "" and the title will be something like "Your Revolution Software backer account"

      @Marjin - I Think they work on their reward management page again to give us something that work properly so don't worry.

    13. Marijn van Putten on

      Any news on this? it's been well over a week.

      @Rabster, @Palindrome boB: Okay, guys, thanks for your feedback, now I'm relieved. I'll just sit back and have a nice cup of tea, I'm in no hurry.

      @Stefan: nope, and I'm pretty sure there'll be another update as soon as the backer's website is up and running.

      @Stefan Goetzke No news since #28. We're still waiting for the backer's page.

    17. Stefan Goetzke - Order of the Goat $7.77 on

      Has there been anything after this here update #28? That's the last mail I received from Broken Sword.
      I'm not impatient, just want to make sure I don't miss anything ...

    18. Shawn Jones on

      Opps, posted before I was ready.

      I was just letting you know to keep in mind that, if you don't get a lot of people claiming their rewards right off, there may be a good reason. So just be patient, and keep sending reminders once it's launched.

    19. Shawn Jones on

      I've come to learn that many Kickstarter projects have a bit of an issue with getting the reward information to the backers. Usually it's a disconnect of some kind, often having to do with mailing lists not sending all the notices properly.

    20. Dean James Robinson on

      Yes but got to have a little bit of it in there ;) i am sure they will mix it up just perfect to satisfy us all of what we would like the game to be, I have no worries that it will be another master piece .

      I agree with Måns Adborn - I would l ike to a see a new game, and if there are old characters I think they should be more like cameo appearances not necessary bulk parts of the story.. Well I have faith in the team so hopefully we won't be disappointed at all in this regard :)

    23. Benjamin Walter

      i hope we will be able to go for an other T-Shirt when you have forgotten to update in the campain

      As long as this page is linked to via an Kickstarter (or the e-mail that's associated with this account) I have no problem with this Backer Account. It's unlikely I'll change anything after I've put it in, as I do not expect to move or do anything else about my current situation.
      Take care near Syria though, I hear on the news there's a war brewing with Turkey.

      Måns Adborn on

      I only have one concern about this game. I hope there wont be TOO much fan service.
      I donated 250 bucks for a new adventure. If characters are returning from previous games, then please just make them cameos and not part of the plot!
      I want a completely new adventure, an adventure that dares to be independent of past success and eager to make new ones!

      (great game....)

    27. Monty on

      Wow.. the opportunity to make a great AND travel to exotic locations of beauty and history.... ok... officially jealous now !!!

      hope Nejo makes a cameo lol

      I wonder how it feels having friends all over the world who gladly invite you and offer their help no matter where in the world you decide to set a foot on the ground. :D
      I guess Cecil would know how it feels if he read the comments in here. ;)

    30. Omri Fima on

      My bet is on Jerash, Jordan. Tough I still have high hopes it will be somwhere in the Golan.
      Ancient sites like Gamla, Sussita , Beit Shean or Gilgal Refaim could be great backgrounds for the upcoming BS game.

      And if by chance you do decide to go to the Golan, give me a call, and i'll give you a private "Behind the Ruins" tour.

    31. LALOLANA on

      I bit it's Jordan.
      Take care and have fun.

      Can I be one of your researchers? I take really good pictures and my passport's up to date... :)

      Im looking forward to the page going live. I am likeing the idea of the places in the game being based on real places as seen by the team

    37. Moeez Siddiqui on

      Location scouting! Must be one of the cool parts of making a game based in the real world.

      Great update! Nearby Syria?! I would love to see Nejo again, one of my favourite characters in BS1!

      Safe trip indeed ...

      Hopefully Charles and Noirin will steer clear of the violence going on in Syria just now. Don't want them getting kidnapped and then we have to pay all the Kickstarter money to get them back. I gather this must be one of the exotic locations in the game so we probably won't find out exactly where they are going but it has to be somewhere that has monkeys. Unless the monkeys are in the second location.

    41. Jana on

      That sounds like a great plan. I'm looking forward to next week! Safe trip to Charles and Noirin =)

    42. David on

      Sounds brilliant! Have a good trip. Just in case your car breaks down, remember that a roller towel makes a great replacement fan belt.

    43. Murat - Order of the Goat $7.77 on

      Nice to hear from you again, guys. :) No worries, take your time.

      Hmmm, and about Charles and Noirin's trip... I'd like to bet that it is Antakya (Turkey) which has been a very indulgent host for a lot different religions and cultures for many centuries now. :)
