Welcome to the Word of Adam
Adam Riley: Radio Producer, Director at Cubed3.com, UK Voice Actor...
Word of Adam is the home base of Adam Riley.  However, who is Adam Riley?  Many will know him as the purveyor of writing expertise at UK-based website Cubed3, rising from a mere contributor when the website launched in 2003 to becoming Operations Director at the end of 2011.  On the side, though, Adam has been building up work in other areas.  Other than writing for numerous websites and doing editing for scripts, male voice over work has become a strong feature, whilst working alongside developers to provide feedback on new videogame projects in a project consultancy role, offering new ideas to further games. Also, he works as a Track Design Engineer at Network Rail. Oh, and from 2013 he became a radio DJ, hosting and producing K-Pop Corner...sorry 'K-Pop Korner'! Europe's only show dedicated to Korean music...and more!

Broken Sword Now Available on Android Devices

by Adam Riley on 06/29/12

Revolution Software has finally confirmed that its multi-award-winning adventure Broken Sword: The Director's Cut has been released worldwide on Google Play for Android phones and tablets.

An enhanced version of the iPhone classic, which itself earned an average Metacritic review score of 91% and achieved 5 million downloads in 2011, Broken Sword: The Director's Cut on Android is the most polished version to date, boasting its highest resolution visuals on phone or tablet. The game includes many unique features including a digital version of 'Watchman' co-creator Dave Gibbons' collector's comic, detailing the events which lead up to the explosive first scene.

One of the all-time classic adventures, multi BAFTA-nominated Broken Sword: Director's Cut pitches sassy journalist Nico Collard and intrepid American George Stobbart into a mysterious journey of intrigue and jeopardy. Players guide George and Nico on their globe-spanning adventure, exploring exotic locations, solving ancient mysteries, and thwarting a dark conspiracy to reveal the secret truths of the Knights Templar. Unique in terms of its production values, quality of narrative and contemporary plot weaving legend with fiction, the game is considered one of the best, most accessible adventure games ever written. George and Nico have become one of gaming's most celebrated  duos – appearing in three sequels.

"We are proud that Broken Sword: The Director's Cut is the first mainstream, high production value adventure game to be available on the Google Play store," says Charles Cecil, Managing Director, Revolution Software. "We've been overwhelmed by fans asking - or just demanding - that we bring the game to Android, but didn't just want to create a straight port. With the additional material we've been able to include, we hope that it'll prove popular to newcomers to the series, as well as offering a significantly enhanced reminiscence to those that played the original."

"The enthusiasm with which our fans have received our games is humbling. Our success in self publishing has allowed Revolution, for the first time in our 20 year history, to self-fund and so create games that we know our fans want to play. We will shortly be announcing details of an original adventure game that has been in development for six months."

Broken Sword: The Director's Cut is now available for Android phones and tablets from the Google Play store, priced GBP2.99.
