Good Old Games (GOG) are currently giving away copies of Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars, which is the first installment of the Broken Sword Series. It’s only available free for a very limited time, so act fast.
After running a successful competition and reaching their desired download milestone, GOG decided to give away the first part of the Broken Sword series for free. It’s only available until October 1, at 7:59 a.m. EDT (11:59 a.m. GMT), so you need to act quickly to get your copy! If you’re not already a GOG user, you’ll need to create an account before downloading. However, this process is very quick.
The download includes both the director’s cut and the original game of Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars, known as Broken Sword: Circle of Blood, so you can enjoy both the retro edition and new feel of the game. The original hand-drawn graphics are enhanced to HD resolution and modern animation techniques in the director’s cut. The director’s cut also includes an extra chapter.
The Broken Sword series is a single-player point-and-click adventure game playable on most recent Windows computers.
As an added bonus, GOG also recently awarded the person who downloaded the 6 millionth download the staggering prize of the entire GOG.com games collection for free.
