Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse Episode One Released

George and Nico embark on their greatest adventure yet
Revolution Software today announced that the first episode of Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse is now available via Revolution's own website store, Steam and, for PC, Mac and Linux - the second episode will release in January 2014. Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse has re-united key members from the original Broken Sword team, with layout artists from studios such as Disney, Aardman, and Universal who have created classically drawn backgrounds.
When a mysterious painting is stolen during an armed raid on a Paris gallery, George Stobbart and Nico Collard are thrown, seemingly by chance, into the investigation together. From Paris to London and beyond, the trail becomes a race against time as dark forces from Europe's turbulent past are woken from their slumber. Broken Sword characters old and new are encountered - but who can George and Nico trust? The journey they are on reveals a conspiracy as old as the written word, whose ancient heresies will cause innocent blood to spill once more.
