Finished this over the weekend on the Vita and absolutely loved it. Clocked in at just over 7 hours.
Can't wait for part 2.
Part 2 is out in match last time I checked. Going to replay the whole game when its out.
Does anyone know if part 2 still out this month?

Their facebook page is just person after person asking for release dates and no response from Revolution.

Excellent customer contact and service then eh.
I'm sure they have said "we'll announce it when we know" a million times already

I'm looking forward to seeing how they finish it. I do love the humour in these games.
Its going to be released early April.
Looking forward to this
Episode 2 trailer:http://youtu.be/JgjvPr8Tp_Q
It's coming out today! At 6.00pm
That's my evening sorted. Woo!
That on all platforms? I am a vita player
Good news! Was just thinking of when the next part would be released. Any news of the cost on iPad? Same as episode 1?
It's coming out on PC, Linux and Mac today. Vita, ios and Android soon. I'm guessing prices will be the same.

Yay!.... oh... awww.
Once it's released, they'll focus on the backers rewards
Where is episode 2 for Vita?
Was thinking the exact same thing on Sunday night. Wish they'd hurry up!

It's due out "before the end of this month" according to Revolution.

Finished this last week, overall I enjoyed it, but man, there are some pretty dodgy puzzles in this, especially:
-Neon sign letter rearranging
-Music based puzzle that is really frustrating if you can't read musical notation and are tone deaf (like me)
Aside from that, a bit nit-picky, but I wish they made Nico look more busy when she's with you and you're solving puzzles, most of the time she just stands in the middle of the room looking into space.

I paid $17 for the Vita version on the US store and didn't realize that was just for part 1.
No idea when part 2 will be out or how much they will charge. It better not be another $17.
Does anyone know if part 2 is completely standalone i.e I don't need episode 1 on my Vita, it's own trophies etc?
Feanor, I think you've paid for both. You'll probably just need to wait for both to get released before re-downloading.
On gog, you needed to download the whole thing as 1 file, so I guess it's the same on Vita.

So is this any good on Android? I loved the old Broken Sword games.
I'm a bit biased as I'm a big fan of Revolution Software's work, but I think it's their best work for a while. 3D models in a gorgeously hand drawn disney quality world that remind me of the first 2 games, but in HD.
The story is just like the first 3 (a mix of humour and history) and so are the puzzles. I'd say it's worth it

Just finished this on PC and I thought it was rather good.
The historical ties seen throughout the Broken Sword series are as good as usual, and they've managed to tell them through the story without it feeling like a chore. The art work is beautiful and I don't mind the 3D models really.
Apart from one puzzle (the symbols one) towards the end, I felt the puzzles were pretty logical and fun. They didn't bog me down to the point of frustration nor did I pass them with ease. My only gripe was with the story.
There's quite a few holes and issues with the plot that I struggled to overlook. The clumsy thief, the dumb inspector, Nico hanging from the cart and that George somehow managed to avoid the police despite globe trotting. It's still good fun, but it felt like it needed someone to take a step back, see these issues and find a way to correct them.
I'd definitely recommend it though. It's not quite up there with the rest of the series for the story, but still a solid and good adventure game.
