Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse, was the fifth game in the Broken Sword series. It was released a year after the first.

Story

George Stobbart, an art insurer witnesses a murder in France. He and Nicole Collard, a reporter, investigate the murder and uncover a conspiracy around Gnosticism.

Development

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse was funded by fans through the crowdfunding site Kickstarter. It is the first installment in the Broken Sword series to be created completely by Revolution Software since Broken Sword II. It is also the first game to be presented in a two-dimensional style since that game as well. However, unlike Broken Sword II, and its predecessor Broken Sword, Broken Sword 5 was presented in a 2.5-dimensional style with hand-drawn backgrounds and 3D modeled characters.

Versions

The game was released in two parts. The first part was released in December 2013 for Windows, macOS, Linux, and PlayStation Vita, in February 2014 for iOS, and on Android in March 2014. The second part was released for Windows, macOS, and Linux in April 2014, with the Vita, iOS, and Android versions following shortly afterward.
