Astraware celebrates 10th Anniversary of Broken Sword series.

THE MIDLANDS, UK – September 28th, 2006 – 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®, GameBoy Advance®, and most recently for Palm OS® and Windows Mobile®. 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®and Windows Mobile® 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® and Windows Mobile®.”, 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® and Windows Mobile® for Pocket PC will be available with an Anniversary-only discount.
