Broken Sword 2.5 is an unofficial fan-made game that takes place between Broken Sword 2 and Broken Sword 3. It stars the same characters as in the games by Revolution Software, George Stobbart and Nicole Collard. In this game, George receives a telegram while he is overseas to say that Nico is dead, but when he flies urgently back to Paris he finds her very much alive, and not happy to see him.
