Broken Sword – Parzival’s Stone Will Feature Time Travel Mechanics According To Game Director Charles Cecil

Some new details emerge

Now that Broken Sword – Parzival’s Stone, the sixth entry in the long-running adventure series, has officially been revealed, I’ll be on the hunt for any morsel of information that I can find. And with Gamescom content still filtering in, the game’s director Charles Cecil has mentioned in an interview that Parzival’s Stone will feature some form of time travel mechanics.

The interview was published via YouTube channel Cressup and sees Cecil discussing several topics, including the basis for the game’s story, the new ‘super 2D’ art style and the dropping of numbers from the title. When the topic of the game’s story is discussed, Cecil says that the narrative is built on a theory that the Holy Grail wasn’t a chalice, it was actually black stones from Lucifer’s crown. Cecil then goes on to say how George acquires one of these stones during the game, which impacts the gameplay.

“Part of the gameplay will be this ability to glimpse into the future, and the future is, god help us, the terrible circumstances that will happen if he (George) doesn’t succeed. But he can also glimpse into the past, and that will allow us, if you have enough information, to – you’re looking into an environment and it’ll then turn into what happened back in that day.”

Cecil does clarify when asked that these moments won’t be playable as such, with George and Nico simply experiencing the past and future.

If you’re a fan of Broken Sword then I highly recommend checking out the interview in full, which you can find below.
