Broken Age

***50% off now through the end of October!***

Broken Age is an episodic point-and-click adventure video game, Tim Schafer’s first return to the genre since 1998’s Grim Fandango. The game is produced and distributed by Schafer’s Double Fine Productions for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, and Android platforms. The game is currently being developed in two acts; the first was released on January 28, 2014.

The first graphic adventure by Tim Schafer in sixteen years, Broken Age began two years ago in a historic, record-breaking Kickstarter campaign. Now it’s here in all its beautiful, 2D, hand-painted glory, with an original orchestral soundtrack and an all-star vocal cast.

Broken Age is a timeless coming-of-age story of barfing trees and talking spoons. Vella Tartine and Shay Volta are two teenagers in strangely similar situations, but radically different worlds. The player can freely switch between their stories, helping them take control of their own lives, and dealing with the unexpected adventures that follow.

They said adventure games were dead, but then Broken Age punched its hand out of the grave and grabbed you by the wrist and you screamed just like in the end of Carrie except what you screamed was “I love adventure games so much!” And sorry I spoiled the end of Carrie.

Double Fine made history with the success of their Kickstarter project. With an ambitious goal of raising $400,000 (USD) to fund the development of the game, the Kickstarter project succeeded in less than eight hours; an update to the Kickstarter project page announced, “We did it! 100% funded in just over eight hours.”

Over $1,000,000 was raised in less than 24 hours. Tim Schafer tweeted that they made Kickstarter records for most money raised in 24 hours and most overall backers.
