Today's 12 Days of Christmas giveaway on iTunes is Revolution Games' Broken Sword: The Director's Cut.

In this point-and-click, BAFTA-nominated, adventure, you play two roles: the first as Nico Collard, a Parisian journalist, the second, George Stobbart, a principled American. The story begins with a murder mystery that escalates into a whirlwind of political and historical intrigue. Players interact with objects and people using the point-and-click engine, pursuing dialogue options and solving a variety of in-game puzzles.

You can download it here.

Over the next few days you can expect Apple to offer a range of free presents via the iTunes Store. Last year the company gave away games including Electronic Arts Trivial Pursuit and an episode of BBC TV show Outnumbered.

Apple promises a "fantastic" selection of songs, music videos, applications, books, TV episodes and a film will be free for 24 hours each day.

The offer runs from Boxing Day, 26 December 2010 until 6 January 2011.
