Following the successful update of Broken Sword: Director’s Cut across a variety of platforms, Revolution is back at it with Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror – Remastered.
The upgraded version of the 1997 original includes such features as “fully animated facial expressions, enhanced graphics throughout, high quality music as well as a context-sensitive hint system, and diary.” The game also comes with a digital comic from acclaimed cartoonist Dave Gibbons, and includes Dropbox integration that allows for cross-platform saved games.
The Smoking Mirror continues the popular story of George Stobbart and Nico Collard. This time around, Nico finds herself caught in the clutches of a drug cartel, and George must resume his globetrotting adventures to free her. Unfortunately, the deadliest challenge of all awaits them in the jungles of Central Africa, as the prophesied return of an ancient Mayan god, Tezcatlipoca, may just prove to be the end of all mankind.
The game launched on the Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch at first, then to PC and Mac in early 2011.
