We Played a Broken Sword game…. on Dreamcast..?

Ah the Dreamcast, such a versatile little box of wonders isn’t it, capable of running lovely looking 128 Bit games, online capabilities, arcade ports, emulation…. Yes, that’s correct, we are talking about something that never came to the console being played on it.

This time around, we took a look at Broken Sword, a classic point and click series that started in 1997 and was locked behind either the PC on PlayStation or many years missing both the Saturn and the Dreamcast with Sega users, particularly on the Dreamcast, left out in the dark, in fact, Stupid Invaders is the only point and click we can think of to hand on the system.

Thankfully, many years ago, ScummVM was made to work with the console, allowing for many classic Lucas Arts stalwarts of this genre to come over unofficially, as well as both of the original Broken Sword games, Shadows of the Templars and The Smoking Mirror. We had a chance to give the first of these games a belated try, see how we felt via the video below.
