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.
Development began on Broken Age 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.
The game, written and designed by Tim Schafer, was initially announced as Double Fine Adventure and funded by a record-setting Kickstarter crowdfunding project in 2012. Its development has been chronicled in-depth through an ongoing video documentary series created by 2 Player Productions, and it is planned for release next year.
