Broken Age Trailer: Release Date Magic
Double Fine’s Kickstarter legend and record-setter Broken Age arrived today for backers, but the rest of us the wait will be a little bit longer. Fortunately, it won’t be too long.
Over on Double Fine’s site, the developer revealed a Jan. 28 release date for Broken Age. Everyone who didn’t back the game when they had the chance will still get to play it, albeit two weeks later. At launch, Broken Age will be available on PC, Mac an Linux, with Ouya, iOS and Android getting the episodic adventure game sometime in the future. Everyone who purchases Act 1 will receive Act 2 as a free update when it arrives later this year.
“It’s been sixteen years since I’ve made an adventure game, almost twenty years since I’ve made a point-and-click, and just shy of two years since I dared the internet to force me to make one,” said Double Fine president and Broken Age writer/designer Tim Schafer. “Coming back to the genre has been like finding an old jacket in a box in your garage that you haven’t worn in twenty years, but once you shake the dust off and put it on you realize it’s an amazing jacket and it still fits, and once you patch the holes in the pockets it could easily take a spot in your main jacket rotation.”
