George and Nico are finally set to wrap up their “greatest adventure yet” as Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse draws to a close with Chapter 2, now available for PC, Mac and Linux.
After completing a very successful Kickstarter campaign, the team at Revolution Software announced that they had enough resources and content to turn The Serpent’s Curse into two full-length games, one releasing late last year and the other set to arrive, well, right now. Players can finally find out where Chapter 1’s cliffhanger ending leads as Nico and George once again pick up the trail to solve a century’s-old mystery. You can grab the HD point-and-click adventure game starting today for $24.99.
On their journey, the dynamic duo will visit Paris and London, as well as various locations throughout Spanish Catalonia and Iraq. In short, Broken Sword 5 is a globe-trotting adventure full of danger and daring that will test the player’s ability to investigate a scene, solve puzzles, and put their trust in the right individuals.
“We were delighted with the reception Episode One received from the game’s fans,” said Revolution founder, Charles Cecil. “Episode Two takes the gameplay to another level—those who have already experienced Episode One will revel in the conclusion to the tale, while new gamers can enjoy the game in its entirety.”
You’ll be able to grab Episode 2 from Steam or GOG later today, and an iOS and Android version will be made available “shortly.” You can also enjoy Episode Two on the Vita sometime this May.
“Episode Two ramps up the level of drama, as well as the difficulty level, as the game progresses: the second part starting with Geoege and Nico having to dodge shotgun fire—with George then meeting his ultimate nemesis—a belligerent goat,” Cecil continued. “I am extremely proud of the game and delighted that we have had the opportunity to build a direct relationship with our fans. The release of the game represents the conclusion of an amazing journey in self-funding, through the generosity of our Kickstarter backers, and to publishing the game under the Revolution brand.”
For those of you who missed out on the first chapter of Broken Sword 5, you can begin your adventure by heading over to GOG or Steam.
