Broken Age Backer… Proof!

Just got through the first act of Broken Age, and wow, what an awesome ending. I was pleasantly surprised and I don’t understand how anyone can complain about this game. I think any of the reviews that were harsh, didn’t really play the game. They probably either watched a walkthrough or had a walkthrough on hand while they were playing. I was a backer so I got the game in January, so I took my time playing through the first act. I usually play adventure games in spurts, because when I get stuck I like to stop playing and do something else so I come back to the game with a fresh perspective. I never really got stuck and only had to look at a walkthrough twice, but even then, I didn’t really use the walkthrough, I just saw what puzzle they had to work on next, and then I focused on that puzzle and eventually figured it out on my own. It’s really too easy to use walkthroughs nowadays with youtube, so I think for the second act, I’m really going to try to never use one. With a well written and designed game like this one, and all of Tim’s and doublefine’s games, the solutions to the puzzles are always really cohesive and makes sense if you think about it logically. I actually wasn’t a fan of the art style when I first saw it, but it really has grown on me, and with Tim’s awesome writing the world and characters feel alive and the art style fits now that I’ve played through it. I really wish that I had no idea that the ending was going to be such a big deal, but even knowing it was going to be a big twist in the plot, I still had no idea how the two stories were going to cross.

Oh and here is proof that I backed the game, it’s awesome to see your name involved in such an important game. Hopefully they made millions of dollars already and the second act will be a huge payday for the company.

Wow, my name!

Awesome fan art of Broken Age and Wilfred, because Elijah Wood is in Wilfred.

Double Fine’s Broken Age

Broken Age part one is out for backers of the game’s Kickstarter (yes, all 87,142 of them), Double Fine confirmed. Broken Age is the result of the Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter campaign, which raised $3.3 million in March 2012, after asking for just $400,000. That campaign historically kicked off the level of attention gaming Kickstarters enjoy today.

“Haven’t shipped a game of my own in 4.5 years, an adventure game in 16, a point-n-click in almost 20. Next Tuesday is going to be exciting!” Double Fine founder Tim Schafer tweeted.

In July 2013, Double Fine announced that it needed more money to complete Broken Age, and it would split the game into two parts, the first of which would land on Steam Early Access in January. Sales from the first half of Broken Age and other Double Fine games are intended to sustain production of the second half.
