The Winter Sale continues over on GOG, and so they’re gifting away Revolution Software’s basic point-and-click Broken Sword without cost till Thursday. It’s the Director’s Cut too, which provides some extra stuff for nosey American vacationer George ‘Goat-wrangler’ Stobbart and French journalist Nico ‘Curtains’ Collard to analyze. Good grief, I can’t even keep in mind the final time I performed a Broken Sword. The first one is a basic journey game from a time once they had been starting to fade from PC, goat puzzle however.
In case you’ve by no means encountered Bro-Swo earlier than, it drops you into the reasonably uninteresting loafers of George as he turns into caught up in a terrorist plot whereas he’s on vacation in Paris, France. It all has one thing to do with the Knights Templar, and there’s a dodgy clown and a mime artist. Oh, and you will have to resolve a puzzle involving a very irate even-toed ungulate that’s so annoying it really has its personal Wikipedia page.
Thankfully, devs Revolution toned the goat down a bit once they launched Broken Sword: The Director’s Cut in 2009. They even roped in Watchmen penciller Dave Gibbons to create among the game’s artwork. You get to play as Nico in some new sections too.
