For our Platinum Members, Knights, Knight Commanders, Knight Seneschals and Knight Masters...

More exciting digital rewards are now available on your Humble account! In addition to those you had previously on the backer panel (the game poster, intro music, outtakes, Papercraft and the Broken Sword 5 - the Serpent’s Curse comic book), we have recently added the following:

  • The ‘Art of Broken Sword’ e-book

This was formerly described as the ‘History of Broken Sword’ book - we renamed it to be more accurate, as the book covers the artistic developments of the series. We’re pleased with this reward - we feel that it really encapsulates the progress and development of the art we have used through the development of the Broken Sword games and hope you will agree.

  • The FULL soundtrack including music from both episodes in two different lossy formats (AAC and MP3) and two lossless formats (ALAC and FLAC). Newly updated!
  • A conversation between George & Nico recorded by Rolf Saxon and Emma Tate. - please click the 'Audio' tab at the bottom of the page to claim all audio rewards.
  • The digital comics for both Broken Sword 1 - Shadow of the Templars, and Broken Sword 2 - The Smoking Mirror.

We are working to complete the Game Design Document for Broken Sword 5 - The Serpent’s Curse, and scripts for the earlier games in the Broken Sword series. We will also soon be adding early access to the Broken Sword 5 Director's Notes to your accounts - these are offered as part of the boxed disc version of the game. Please keep an eye on this page for more information.

We have now seen the final design for the exclusive Kickstarter game boxes, and we’re very pleased with how it is looking. The box itself shows the iconic image of George and Nico and the Ouroboros, and will have a detachable wrap-around with all the text, logos, age rating etc. The simplicity of the box design is extremely striking, and we hope you like the results!

The box will be cellophane wrapped, and will include:

  • Broken Sword 5 game (episode 1 and 2) on DVD
  • Printed comics of Broken Sword 1, 2, and 5
  • Broken Sword 5 official poster
  • Official Broken Sword 5 soundtrack CD
  • Broken Sword 1 - 4 games on DVD (DRM free)

We have received a large number of requests from people who definitely didn’t want their boxes to be signed so, in order to accommodate this, we have printed some exclusive George and Nico postcards which have been signed by Rolf, Charles, Tony and Noirin.

The postcard is an additional reward, and will be included in place of the signatures on the box, to avoid the difficulties of:

  1. Getting signatures on the boxes without damaging the protective packaging by opening and then resealing
  2. The logistics of trying to sort those that do want their boxes signed and those that don’t - and inevitably getting some the wrong way around
  3. Posting the boxes all the way to San Francisco for Rolf to sign. Awaiting his return to the UK would mean a lengthy delay in being able to deliver the boxes; something we are very keen to avoid since some people have indicated that they are still waiting to play Broken Sword 5 as they want to play from the physical disc.

We understand this isn’t precisely what was promised, however due to numerous support requests for specific signatures, unsigned boxes and the likely delivery time of this reward, we feel that the signed postcard is a preferable alternative to a further delayed Backers Game Box.

Thank you all for your understanding. We hope you enjoy this selection of new rewards - please let us know your thoughts on them on our Kickstarter forum.

Best wishes,

The Revolution Team.
