Download here (aprox. 150MB)

In addition to the English voices the patch includes French subtitles. It also encapsulates the first patch, which does not need to be installed separately.

If you are only interested in the French subtitles, you can instead download a smaller file.

PS: You can also find us on Facebook!

After a longer period than expected, we are happy to release the official patch for Broken Sword 2.5. We fixed several situations where the game freezed or the inventory didn't worked as expected.

Additionally this patch includes new subtitles, which means the officially supported languages are now: English, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Croatian, Portuguese and Russian. Thanks to all fans out there who made this possible. It was a long way, but finally we reached the goal.

Please download the patch only from our website. Don't install language packs from other websites, because they are not authorised by mindFactory and can contain viruses. We are not responsible for any computer damages related to our game. To install the patch just unpack the ZIP file into the same folder as your game installation of Broken Sword 2.5. That's it. There is no special installation required.

Important: After the game is patched you can't use old savegames anymore. Sorry for this.

After the release of the game, we haven't stopped working on it. In fact, we've prepared several additional language packages and the English voices are on their way. What is more, all of the characters already have their actors, just not all of them are fully recorded yet.

Šarunas Ledas with the help of Dennis Keighron have chosen great voices, including very convincing ones for George (Stan Burdman) and Nico (Maggie Nolan)! We believe that all of you will love them, because not only are they very fitting, but also truly similar to the original voices of the main characters. So, keep waiting for the full English version, because it's not too long until it's out. In the meantime, you can listen to the dialogue of George and Nico, that has been accidentally recorded in Nico's answering machine.

A dreadful thing happened. Flap and Guido broke into our office at the beginning of the week. They left an enormous chaos and stole all of the hard-drives including our project data. After arriving at the place on Tuesday morning, we only found a note from the scoundrels.

Our team started the investigation immediately. This morning we traced Flap and Guido near the Franco-German border. They've stolen our company car, too, which led us to them. Luckily, the game data is ours again. Back at the mindFactory office: After retrieving the game data this morning, we found out that the story is completely messed up. At some points the story isn't clear for the player. Consequently, we decided not to release the game as it is on the 21st of August.

This being the case, we decided to fix these errors. As a result, your game experience will improve. Since there's not much time left until the release, we need your help hunting the bugs in Broken Sword 2.5. So, we are asking you for assistance. Write an application as a beta tester between the 1st of August and the 21st of August. Further explanations are below. The beta testing is necessary and takes time. The testing period ends on the 27th of September and shortly afterwards Broken Sword 2.5 will be published.

You can apply from the 1st of August in our forum (and only there), therefore you need to have an account there. So, create dxdiag.txt file with the DirextX Diagnostic Tool, which should be installed on your computer (from the start menu, choose run; type "dxdiag"; when the diagnostic tool launches, click "Save All Information" and save the dxdiag.txt file wherever you like). Then write a private message to a group named "Beta-Tester" (go to your private messages, click "New message" and there will be a box, in which you can select a group "Beta-Tester"; or click on the link) with the information from the dxdiag.txt file in the content. That's it. On the 21st of August you will be informed (by a PM) whether you were accepted as a tester (sorry, but we can't accept all of the applications).

We are terribly sorry to postpone the release date, but since we want to answer your hopes, we have no choice. So, we would like to appologize to those who are so eagerly waiting for the new comic-style broken sword game and have already waited for so long. Just wait a wee bit longer.

I close my eyes. Many thoughts had flashed across my mind. Some of them fade from my memory, others become sharper—like looking through a lens. Seven years later I reopen my eyes. Only one vision lasts all the others: the dream of Broken Sword 2.5!

Besides lots of prosperous days, many deadlocks had to be broken. Therefore I'm proud of this highly motivated and creative team, who created a successor to Broken Sword 2. And it corresponds exactly to the wishes of the team.

One question isn't answered yet. After months and years without an exact release date, we're going to announce it today: Broken Sword 2.5 will be available on August 21st, 2008. Then you will be able to download the full version for free from this website. It will come with German voices and English subtitles.

We're working on English voices, too. More information related on this will be available soon.

Count the remaining days with us!

Good news we like best. Today we want to tell you that we´re good on schedule and that there won’t be any delay in regards to the release.
Our graphic artists have made themselves timetables for the rest of the necessary animations and locations to get ready just in time. It´s quite similar in the music sector. The team also works on a detailed overview of the remaining parts. There are spread over the remaining month as well as the graphics.
We give you a shout soon with the exact release date!
