I backers (cioè coloro che hanno finanziato lo sviluppo del gioco su Kickstarter, tra cui il sottoscritto) di Broken Sword 5 stamani hanno trovato nella loro casella email una bella sorpresa: revolution software ci ha informato che la versione PC di Broken Sword: the Serpent’s Curse sarà disponibile per il download a partire dal 4 Dicembre.
In realtà c’è un trucco: il gioco è stato diviso in 2 episodi, e il secondo uscirà a Gennaio. Ma chi l’ha pre-acquistato non deve preoccuparsi, entrambi gli episodi sono compresi nel prezzo.
Riporto qui, per completezza, il testo originale della mail (che contiene anche informazioni sulle verisoni Android e iOS, oltre che sulla versione “scatolata” del gioco)
Project Update #41: Broken Sword Release Dates
Posted by Revolution Software
We are delighted to announce that the PC version of Broken Sword 5 – The Serpent’s Curse will be released on December 4th. As backers, you will be able to download the game on the day of release! The exact details about “how” will follow closer to release.
To top that news, the game will be released as two action-packed adventures in close succession. Thanks to your support, we have been able to be hugely ambitious – each episode is a full sized game in its own right. And because we couldn’t have done it without you, everyone from reward level $15 and up will receive both episodes!
The second episode is due for release in January 2014.
Android & iOS
The Android versions will follow soon after, but we cannot confirm a final release date yet. For those of you who asked for the iOS version instead, we haven’t found a way to distribute it yet. But don’t despair! We haven’t forgotten about it, and will do everything we can to make it possible.
From reward level $50 and up, you can have beta access to the game. We’ll have more news on that next week!
You may wonder what the two episodes mean for the boxed version of the game. We are happy to say that both episodes are included in your Special Edition Kickstarter box. However, this does mean that physical rewards will be shipped next year, once the second episode has been released.
Thanks once again for your support! You have made Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse possible, and we can’t wait to give you the game in return.
