Broken Sword 1 Directors Cut & 2:Remastered Now On Steam For Linux

Two classic adventure games are now available on Linux in their full glory! While Broken Sword 2 was already on Linux thanks to the most recent Humble Bundle, number 1 is now here too.

The Humble Bundle is the only place right now to get Broken Sword 2 for Linux outside of steam, so you may want to hurry if you aren't pro-Steam.

They don't have Linux store icons yet on Steam, but a user has confirmed them working for us.

I've never played either of them, so I don't get what the big fuss is about the Broken Sword series, I am sure you will all tell me what-for in the comments!

What I do know is classics like this on Linux are important, having a back-catalogue is always a good bargaining chip for OS-switchers.

Well, the first one was already on Linux as well, thanks to a previous Humble Bundle. It never appeared in the Humble Store, though, so you couldn't get the Linux version anymore afterwards.

The non-remastered classic versions of the games also still work perfectly fine with ScummVM. (The remastered versions use a different engine altogether, so not supported in ScummVM.)

Apparently when you buy in Humble Bundle 9 You also give the BS 1, I say this because in my Steam's game list linux appear BS 1 and BS 2.

I'm guessing you bought the previous bundle that DrMcCoy mentioned, and that you're only just now seeing BS1 on Steam.

??? No, only BS 2 you get in the last Humble Bundle: PC and Android 9. I say that, because i have the bundle. And there is no BS 1 in it.

So i have only BS 2 in my Steam list.

I have both in my steam list. I got Broken Sword 1 with "Humble Bundle with Android 6".

Neat, I've already played original 1&2 on ScummVM, but it's good to have them in my Steam library now. I wonder if they come around to porting the missing parts as well.

Sorry my mistake...

The big fuss… well they are just standard point & click adventure games. Not as good as the original Monkey Island or Day of the tentacle, as far I as can tell. Not too bad either. But I’m stuck in BS1, I don’t think I played even half of it.

I was waiting for them for a long time. I really love this games.
