Astraware celebrates 10th Anniversary of Broken Sword

Astraware and Revolution Software are excited to announce a special Broken Sword promotion to celebrate 10 years since the release of the original Broken Sword.

When the game was originally released on 30th September 1996, no-one could have forseen that the game would still be receiving rave reviews a full decade later. ‘Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars’ has been released on several platforms including PC, PlayStation(R), GameBoy Advance(R), and most recently for Palm OS(R) and Windows Mobile(R). Broken Sword is now an award-winning franchise with three sequels. The most recent, ‘Broken Sword 4: The Angel of Death’, has just been released and is currently number 1 in the charts.

“We always dreamed of writing the game on a device that would reach beyond hardcore gamers; with the emphasis on intelligent, cerebral gameplay, rather than the requirement for manual dexterity, the game was always intended to have a broad appeal. Writing the game on Palm OS(R)and Windows Mobile(R) platforms has finally allowed us to achieve this goal”, said Charles Cecil, Managing Director and co-founder of Revolution Software.

“We are really proud of how the game has turned out on Palm OS(R) and Windows Mobile(R).”, said Tony Warriner, co-founder of Revolution Software, “The PC version was praised for its beauty and subtlety, and this has translated perfectly”.

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the release of ‘Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars’, Astraware is making the game available at a very special discount price. From Friday 29th September to Sunday 1st October 2006 ONLY, ‘Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars’ for Palm OS(R) and Windows Mobile(R) for Pocket PC will be available with an Anniversary-only discount. This offer is available from the Astraware website for this limited period only. Visit the site at for more details.
