The Adventure Begins....

The murder of an underground hacker in Paris is just the beginning of this extraordinary adventure for George Stobbart and Nico Collard in the highly anticipated Broken Sword III. Powerful seismic events are shaking the world. An Ancient Conspiracy, the Secrets of the Templars, and a fiendish source of pure Evil are responsible… From the jungles of the Congo to the deceptive calm of the English West Country and gothic castles – time is running out for the Earth and only George and Nico can save it…

George Stobbart and Nico Collard are drawn into a terrifying conspiracy to harness an ancient power. Brought together by fate, coincidence and the intriging mystery, they will fight sinister forces, uncover an ancient conspiracy, and discover a fiendish source of pure evil.

Lured into the steamy jungles of the Congo, eerie castles in Prague, the chic back-streets of Paris and the historic English village of Glastonbury, the duo must unravel the mystery involving the 'Voyncih Manuscript' which holds the secrets of the ultimate evil power, The Sleeping Dragon, and save mankind.

Reviews:

Just Adventure by Ray Ivey

"Cecil and his team have done a wonderful job of bringing the feeling of a Broken Sword game into this new 3D environment. The handy third dimension actually opens up many possibilities for puzzles that would have been difficult or impossible in a 2D game. Many of the puzzles have to do with using and manipulating objects to gain access. So there’s rock climbing, rail hanging, ledge crawling, etc. Let me emphasize that at no time does this kind of puzzle make the game feel like an action/adventure or even a platformer. The controls are very tight and specific – it’s about choosing the “climb up” or “climb down” action icon, not about running and jumping a la Tomb Raider."

"Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon is a triumph. It’s at the same time a real 3D game and a crackerjack pure adventure. High levels of craftsmanship and designer TLC are evident throughout the game. Playing it is like falling into an exciting movie thriller. This game is recommended for anyone, and for adventure lovers it’s absolutely not to be missed."
