Double Fine Sold Enough Copies of Broken Age Act 1 to Fund Act 2Jon Ledford |
The pioneer of point-and-click gaming has publicly stated that Double Fine Productions has sold enough copies of Broken Age: Act 1 that its second act has been given a full green-light.
In an interview with Games Industry International, Tim Schafer, founder of Double Fine Productions, has stated that the success of the first act of Broken Age has taken a lot of stress off of his mind. Schafer mentioned that receiving money from a publisher puts a development studio in a binding contract, forcing them to adhere to specific guidelines in terms of time. Double Fine's use of Kickstarter allowed Schafer's team to work at their own pace in order to provide the highest quality game possible, regardless of how long it took to develop.
