Game description

"Act 1 of Broken Age is a gorgeous, impeccably written adventure that simultaneously tugs at my nostalgic core, while ushering in a new era for the point-and-click genre." - 9.5 - IGN

"...delightful, beautiful, utterly charming and you really should play it right this second." - 9 - Polygon

"I haven’t felt this surge of nostalgia and excitement about a game in a long time, and I truly think Broken Age will be looked back fondly as one of the greats." - 9.5 - Destructoid


The first graphic adventure by Tim Schafer in sixteen years, Broken Age began in a historic, record-breaking Kickstarter campaign. Now it's here in all its beautiful, 2D, hand-painted glory, with an original orchestral soundtrack and an all-star vocal cast.

Broken Age is a timeless coming-of-age story of barfing trees and talking spoons. Vella Tartine and Shay Volta are two teenagers in strangely similar situations, but radically different worlds. The player can freely switch between their stories, helping them take control of their own lives, and dealing with the unexpected adventures that follow.

They said adventure games were dead, but then Broken Age punched its hand out of the grave and grabbed you by the wrist and you screamed just like in the end of Carrie except what you screamed was "I love adventure games so much!" And sorry I spoiled the end of Carrie.

Act 1 is available now, and the act 2 conclusion will arrive as a free update early this year!


Key Features:

  • Pointing

  • Clicking

  • Original soundtrack, composed by Peter McConnell, recorded by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

A game that actually deserves every single penny it got through its Kickstarter campaign

emellow

This game is such an excellent example of what can be done with current tech for the timeless point and click genre. The visuals are bold, bright, and colorful, and I love how they achieved an illustrative effect for an interactive game. The voice acting is superb, and I loved hearing actors I love as hilarious characters. The story is so fun, it has funny and heavy moments, and they did a good job of executing a story with complex elements and character development. It was great to have such unique and brave male and female characters, with a story that touched on very 'human' elements. My only criticisms would be: first, at times, the puzzles veer into being too simple or too abstract, which can make for a frustrating problem that limits player brainstorming (hate being forced to check online for hints, it suspends the story); second, the second part of the game loses a lot of its wonder and becomes a bit monotonous. It's still an excellent and enjoyable story and I have shared it with eager players. Those problems just feel a bit disappointing for an otherwise fantastic game. I would still recommend giving it a try, and the sale price is definitely worth it!

Nice but short.

gmgtochuje

I supported this project on kickstarter. Unfortunately, In return I get less than 4 hours of gameplay. The puzzles in this game virtually do not exist, and those that are, are child's play. You cannot call it back to the roots of adventure games. As for the evaluation of these 4 hours. The story of the boy is bad, but the girl is nicely done. Unfortunately, there is no strong connection between the two stories, which I consider a wasted opportunity. Graphic is cool - if anyone likes this style. Humour is also fine. Worth to try when it's on a sale.

A Good Game But...

DarksLight21

This game is good, I enjoyed playing this for the stunning visual and the voice acting, for the gameplay, it's good, especially the first act, the puzzle in the first act is easy to solve and fun. Unfortunately, the second act is average at best, because the story felt forced and end abruptly, besides that the puzzle in second act is way harder and annoying than the first act, since you need to keep repeating it if you fail or timed it wrongly. All in all, you'll enjoy the stunning visual of this game, but if you're not good with puzzles, you'll be frustrated by this game, especially for the second act.
