The first episode of Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse
will launch on December 4, developer Revolution Software announced. The point-and-click adventure will arrive on PC, Mac and Linux first with Android and iOS versions following "soon after," though no release date for the mobile games has been set. The game will also come to Vita later this year
Revolution Software earned $771,561 on Kickstarter in September 2012
to fund the next entry in the adventure series, which began in 1996. Broken Sword 5
is split into two episodes, each episode being "a full sized game in its own right," the developer writes. The second episode is due out in January 2014.
