ARGcast Mini #15: Reforging the Broken Sword Franchise with Charles Cecil

by ARGcast

Point and click adventure game designer Charles Cecil talks to us about bringing his Broken Sword franchise to Nintendo Switch!

Time to go on a globe-trotting adventure, ARGonauts! Broken Sword creator Charles Cecil charms us with his presence in this latest ARGcast Mini. Join us as we discuss the beginnings of his point and click adventure series, the state of the adventure genre in history, and the story on those Broken Sword movie rumors.

Along with talking all things Broken Sword, Charles also tells us a story about parallels to his games and The Da Vinci Code as well as how he got involved with The Da Vinci Code movie. Plus we spend some time gushing over our love for Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul in terms of their storytelling structure.

We will have another ARGcast Mini very soon for you all, so stay tuned for that. It will have David speaking with game composer Rob Hubbard whose music was prominent during the Commodore 64 era. He also had an impact on EA games after moving from England to America. Until then, keep it retro!

We are partnered with Don’t Feed The Gamers! Be sure to check them out for fan-focused gaming content.
