FEATURE ARTICLE – Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars – The Film Script

By Marty Mulrooney

Over the past few weeks Alternative Magazine Online has been covering Revolution Software’s Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse Kickstarter campaign. I have been chatting every day since the Kickstarter was announced with my fellow Broken Sword fans and have been overwhelmed by not only the friendliness of the community that has evolved, but by each individual fan’s efforts to spread the word about Broken Sword 5. Revolution Software started something truly special when they announced Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse and the fans have made it even better. This film script – which was written with the permission of Revolution Software co-founder Tony Warriner – transfers the iconic opening of the original Broken Sword adventure game to the typed page. It is my way of saying thank you to all the staff at Revolution Software, my friend Rolf Saxon and all the new friends I have made via the Broken Sword 5 Kickstarter campaign. Paris in the fall…

  1. You did a fantastic job on this! I can really picture the film in my mind. It’s surely only a matter of time before some Hollywood exec sees it and wants to make an awesome Broken Sword movie, and you become a famous screenwriter. Wouldn’t that be amazing? 🙂

    Nice of you to sneak in an Order of the Goat reference

    Helllooooooo! Is this the mysterious piece of writing you have been working on? I quite like it! It honours the series nicely. Have always wondered why there has not been a film made that is either a direct remake or something similar.
    I agree with Bill, love the goat reference!
