Double Fine, lead by adventure game development veteran Tim Schafer, has revealed the adventure game project funded by their monumental Kickstarter campaign. That game is named Broken Age.
“Broken Age development began when we asked our community if they would help us create a classic-style adventure game without needing to rely on traditional publishers. It turns out they did,” posted Double Fine on the Broken Age website.
Double Fine received over US$3.3-million in pledges for the development of the new adventure game.
Broken Age is a point-and-click adventure telling the stories of a young boy and girl leading parallel lives. The girl has been chosen by her village to be sacrificed to a terrible monster–but she decides to fight back. Meanwhile, a boy on a spaceship is living a solitary life under the care of a motherly computer, but he wants to break free to lead adventures and do good in the world. Adventures ensue.
Pre-order and backer access has opened up.
Backer access includes: private backer-only discussion forums, all past and ongoing episodes of 2 Player Productions’ documentary series following the development of the game, a wealth of development materials from the Double Fine team, a digital soundtrack, beta access when available, and of course the DRM-free game download for PC, Mac, & Linux.
