Broken Sword game series on a Mac

Broken Sword

Broken Sword is an adventure game series which revolves around the adventures of George Stobbart and Nico Collard in several fictitious stories based on history and mythology.

I have recently discovered a way to play the Broken Sword game series on a modern Mac. There is a program called ScummVM, which imports the games and lets you play them from within ScummVM. Of course, you will need to have the game itself, which I am sure you can find on Ebay.

P.S. You may find that the original Cutscenes will not work, but you can download the ones that do work from ScummVM Downloads page.
