Broken Age

By on January 29, 2014 at 3:05 pm

Yes, as the title suggest the Double Fine adventure game Broken Age has broken out of its Kickstarter-backer exclusive period and is now available for the general public to consume.

You can pick it up on Steam for the princely price of $24.99, or $29.99 with the soundtrack. This is only the first part of the game, with the second half due to arrive as a free update later this year.

According to Double Fine, Broken Age contains:

  • Pointing
  • Clicking
  • Original soundtrack, composed by Peter McConnell, recorded by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
  • All-star voice cast, including Elijah Wood, Jack Black, Jennifer Hale, Wil Wheaton, and Pendleton Ward
  • Dialog Trees!
  • Some jokes. Unless you don’t think they’re funny, in which case we totally weren’t trying to be funny.
  • A whole bunch of awesome PUZZLES
  • This one really hard puzzle that you won’t get but you’ll look it up online and not tell anybody
  • All your hopes and dreams

Good stuff.

Busy exploring Last of Us and Beyond Two Souls (FINALLY) but very much looking forward to this as well. Love me my stories.

 

As tongue in cheek as they are, I really wish that second last bullet point were actually true. My one main gripe and criticism is that act one is waaaaay too easy.

Was actually genuinely annoyed at one point in Shay’s story where he outright automatically spells out the answer to what would have otherwise been a neat little puzzle.

Still a great story and game though, can’t wait for part 2.

I disagree I had to stop and think about some of the puzzles and never found myself pixel hunting or doing things just because. To me that’s how these games should be I shouldn’t be blindly guessing to solve a puzzle.
