Macgamestore.com today announced the release of the classic adventure games, Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars - Director's Cut and Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror for the Mac. Originally released in 1996, the Broken Sword adventure game series is hailed by many as the best point and click games ever created. Now they are available for Mac users to enjoy. Enter a globe-trotting adventure involving conspiracies, cults and murder, all revolving around the Knights Templar.

Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars was originally released on September 30, 1996 and published by Virgin Interactive Entertainment. George Stobbart is an American tourist on holiday in Paris in the autumn. The story opens with George's quiet coffee at a cafe rudely interrupted by the explosion of a bomb planted by a man dressed up as a clown. He sets off investigating the explosion and, gradually, he and photo-journalist Nico Collard are drawn into a globe-trotting adventure involving conspiracies, cults and murder, all revolving around the Knights Templar.

Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror was originally released in 1997 and opens with George Stobbart witnessing the kidnapping of his now girlfriend Nico Collard. It is up to George to break Nico out, and uncover a secret drug ring that relates to the redemption of a sinister Mayan god. It is also the only game in the series that does not follow the Knights Templar story line.

Both games are available immediately as a digital download purchase through Macgamestore.com and Mac Games Arcade for $9.95 USD each.
