Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars

Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars was the first game in the Broken Sword series.  The game follows an American named George Stobbart who witnesses a murder at a cafe in France.  With the help of a French reporter named Nicole Collard, George investigates the murder in order to get to the bottom of the story and clear George's name.

A Director's Cut was released in 2009 and 2010 for Wii, Nintendo DS, and iPhone with new close-up art and new interactive sequences.  The Director's Cut was released for PC and Mac in 2010.

The original PC, Mac, and PlayStation versions of Broken Sword are now supported by ScummVM, a program designed to let 2D adventure games run on multiple platforms. With ScummVM, Broken Sword now runs on modern versions of windows, as well as Linux, Mac OS X, and many consoles such as Dreamcast, Wii, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable.
