Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars – Cane and Rinse No.243

“Paris in the fall, the last months of the year, at the end of the millennium. The city holds many memories for me, of music, of cafes, of love, and of death.”

Released in 1996, Revolution Software‘s third game span a yarn surrounding the intriguing history of the Knights Templar. Leon, James, Karl and guest Chris Spann of Midnight Resistance point and click as they attempt to unravel the mystery, express their affection towards protagonists George and Nicole and their fondness for the palpable atmosphere and evocative locations depicted in Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars. As usual, we also hear from the Cane and Rinse forum and our Twitter followers too with their Three Word Reviews.

Music used in this issue:

1: Main Theme by Barrington Pheloung

  1. George Stobart was 22 ? He seemed like mid thirties to me. Also great podcast, I was around 10 years old when the game came out and through numerous failed attempts, finally completed the game about 8 years later. A fond memory I have was just watching the game without doing anything. The sounds and art was truly amazing.

  2. Thanks William – glad you enjoyed the show.

  3. So fantastic to find a podcast discussing my favourite game of all time (via Revolution Software FB page). Thank you so much for putting the time and energy into this!! Definitely will subscribe to your other content! Amazing coverage!

  4. Hi Jamie, thank you for your kind words, we’re glad you’re enjoying the podcast!

  5. come on, guys, the art is made by don bluth, master animator that directed “fievel – an american tail” and the “dragon’s lair” games.

    great show, by the way!

  6. Almost! Neil Breen and Eoghan Cahill of Don Bluth studios in Dublin were responsible for the backgrounds (but not the animation).
    Apologies if we didn’t mention this. It was in the show-notes but not everything always makes the final edit.

    Thanks for the kind words, glad you enjoyed the show!

  7. Back for a 2nd listen!
    Love the discussion around one of my favorite games growing up.
