Double Fine has confirmed that the first half of Broken Age will release next week, on January 14 – but only to the adventure game’s 87,142 Kickstarter backers at first.

“January 14″ probably means “January 15″ for most of us, since we live in the future in Australia.

Broken Age has been divided into two parts after Double Fine realised that in its excitement at raising $3.3 million on a target of $400,000 it had grown too ambitious and overspent, somehow. Sales of the first half through Steam Early Access will help accelerate release of the second, the developer hopes, so that backers won’t have to wait too long for the whole package.

The adventure’s release is a landmark moment for two reasons. First, it’s the delivery of the game which really began the Kickstarter revolution for medium-sized games and developers, and second, it’s the first game from Tim Schafer in over four years; Schafer’s first adventure in 16 years; and his first point-and-click in almost 20 years.

‘Double Fine realised that in its excitement …it had grown too ambitious and overspent’

Why do I feel that this applies to most all of Double Fine’s titles. I know it happens at other developers as well but it just feels like it is a given when talking about Double Fine.
