A Kickstarter drive to fund a new Broken Sword adventure game went live a couple of weeks ago. It's managed to hit the $400,000 target already, so the developers are pushing ahead for a $1,000,000 goal, which would provide enough funding to greenlight a sequel to Beneath a Steel Sky.

"For many years we have wanted to write a sequel to our 1994 classic adventure. If we reach this goal we will start work on this exciting, much-demanded project, and implement Easter eggs in Broken Sword: the Serpent's Curse, offering a glimpse of this futuristic dystopia," writes a Revolution rep in the latest Kickstarter update post.
