Rolf Saxon Interview - Broken Sword 5

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse is a point-and-click adventure game created by British game developer Revolution Software. In 2013, the studio raised $771,560 (over $823,000 including PayPal donations) via Kickstarter to create the latest instalment in the classic Broken Sword series, which was eventually released as two episodes. Alternative Magazine Online’s review of the first episode described The Serpent’s Curse as “not only an excellent new instalment in the series, but an excellent adventure game full stop.” Broken Sword 5 was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in September 2015, making the game available to a whole new audience. It seemed like the perfect time to catch up with the charming man behind the voice of the series’ much-loved protagonist George Stobbart. AMO is therefore delighted to present an exclusive online interview with American actor Rolf Saxon.
