As some of you might recall, Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse was recently launched as a Kickstarter project. Revolution Software asked for $400,000 in order to fund the fifth installment of the graphic adventure title and when the Kickstarter project closed, the company received $771,560.
Needless to say, Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse is a reality. But in addition to the possibility of funding that game in particular, Revolution Software included some stretch goals just in case the initial amount was surpassed. Ultimately, the project failed to accrue $1 million which would have secured the development of Beneath the Steel Sky 2, but the developer stated that they are still planning to release the long-awaited title.
“We’re delighted by the recent level of interest in a sequel to Beneath a Steel Sky and are currently discussing design ideas for this project, which we plan to go into development following the release of Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse. We’re deeply touched that our Steel Sky fans are as enthusiastic today as they were when the original game released in 1994,” Revolution Software co-founder Tony Warriner told Develop.
Classic point-and-click adventure Beneath a Steel Sky is available for free on Good Old Games, so fans of the genre should definitely check it out. In the meantime, Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse is coming out for PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android devices in early 2013.
