Double Fine’s Kickstarter adventure game gets a name and a website

Broken Age

By on March 25, 2013 at 10:59 am

If you’re one of the many who backed Double Fine to the tune of $3.3 million when they asked for money to make a new adventure game, rejoice! It’s finally been named and revealed: Broken Age is the title, and a pretty, but sparse website has been launched.

Broken Age is a point-and-click adventure telling the stories of a young boy and girl leading parallel lives,” reveals the site. “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.”

If this sounds like your sort of thing you can still get in on the ground floor by pre-ordering on the site. $15 gets you the game for Windows, Mac and Linux, and $30 gets you that and a bunch of goodies.

Wow, first I’m reading about it here on GoN, you’d think a kickstarter Update would have been sent out to us. I am a fan of the “multiple characters” approach in my Adventure games.

 

Bit disappointing… “Worlds Apart” was a much more interesting option.

Plus it sounds too much like “Dragon Age” >.>
