Controller and Touch Support!

16 abril 2014

Hey all, we just updated Broken Age with full controller and touch support! All of these modes should just work (at the same time actually!), but there's an updated controller remapping section in the options menu if you want to tweak it. And try messing with the right stick and triggers in game and the d-pad in the inventory for some super pro moves. Let us know what you think on the forums!

Broken Age Act 1 Release

18 fevereiro 2014

Thanks to all of you lovely folks who checked out the game during our backer beta from January 14-28. We thought it would be good to drop everyone a note about the release build that went up after that. This build included the following stuff:

New interaction options
  • There are now options to toggle between click and drag interaction modes
  • Inventory is now mapped to right click on PC and Linux
  • Added mouse sensitivity options

Art and animation polish
Lots of scenes were re-painted at a higher resolution and many animation pops and sorting issues were fixed up!

There was also just a lot of general bug fixing during this period. I'd recommend checking the game out again before act 2 releases.

AND THANKS FOR PLAYING!

9.5 – Destructoid

Sobre o jogo

The first graphic adventure by Tim Schafer in sixteen years, Broken Age began two years ago 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 later this year!

Key Features:

  • 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

Jogo fabuloso da Double Fine que não deve nada aos famosos Point'n'Click e Adventures que Tim Schafer já fez durante sua carreira! Visualmente lindo, dublagem excelente e um dos jeitos mais diferentes de se contar uma história dupla já vistos.

O jogo por enquanto só tem disponível seu Ato 1, que possui umas 4 horas de jogo bem fluído. Recomendado para todos que há tempos querem um Adventure divertido e um universo único!

Recomendadíssimo e à espera do segundo Ato!

Schafer mais uma vez entrega o que nem precisou prometer. Pra quem não lembra, ele foi o cara responsável por sistemas revolucionários em jogos de aventura, como o trio protagonista de Day of the Tentacle, tornou famosos os Gone Jackals com o revolucionário Full Throttle, e acertou a mão com o 3D em Grim Fandango.

Nesse jogo você livremente altera entre as histórias de Vella e Shay, o que é um alívio pois quando bate em algum obstáculo, pode esfriar a cabeça resolvendo problemas na outra história. Especialmente na história de Vella você sente como se estivesse vendo uma animação digna a concorrer a prêmios de cinema, com personagens coloridos tanto visualmente quanto tematicamente. O sistema não é complicado de se entender e não existe punição terrível por fazer "as coisas erradas".

Quanto às histórias, foram muito bem escritas, tanto é que eu passei por meia dúzia de teorias de como estavam interligadas, até a revelação no finaldo ato, quando se percebe que as pistas estavam sempre lá.

Mal posso esperar pelo ato 2, porque pro ato 1 dou cinco estrelas tranquilamente. Não tenha dúvidas se é fã dos trabalhos de Schafer, ele realmente continua tão talentoso quanto sempre em produzir jogos.

Uma bela fantasia que te leva de volta ao tempo dos incríveis adventures.. Tim Schafer (Criador da magnífica série Monkey Island) nos traz uma bela aventura com arte incrível e vozes impecavelmente entregues no timming correto, com humor sutil e conteudo interressante nos deixando bastante intrigados de que maneiras as histórias se conectam!

Recomendo que começe a jogar ou intercalando as historias, ou jogando primeiro a Historia de Shay ( O rapaz ) para depois jogar a outra história, para aproveitar melhor o impacto do final do jogo e ficar com gostinho quero mais!

After an overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign, Tim Schafer and his team at Double Fine have decided to return to their roots with their first point-and-click adventure game in over 15 years. Similar to their past projects like Grim Fandango and The Secret of Monkey Island, Broken Age features unforgettable characters, puzzles, unique themes, and plenty of humor.

The game centers around two characters each from a drastically different walk of life. One half of the narrative follows Vella, a girl who is to be offered as a sacrifice to an enormous monster known as Mog Chothra. While the other half of the story focuses on a boy named Shay who finds himself trapped on a spaceship under the watchful eye of an overly protective computer that holds him prisoner under the pretense of safety. Both of the characters yearn for change and freedom in their own way. While Vella is surrounded by overly zealous villagers that cling to tradition, Shay is completely isolated and patronized by an overbearing computer as he’s forced to endure the same routine day after day.

The puzzles are quite satisfying, they’re not overly complex but they still require some thinking which is a refreshing change from most recent games in the genre. They consist of scouring the environment for various items which can be combined with one another or given to certain characters. The amount of overall polish added to the dialogue is impressive, as you’ll most likely try to use the items in your inventory in clever ways to prompt humorous reactions and responses.

The art style is unique and really sets the game apart. While not being overly impressive on a technical level, Broken Age is brimming with personality and has an undeniable charm. The game feels like a children’s book come to life but the underlying themes and subtle humor make it appealing to players of all ages. The environments are varied and interesting to look at while the characters are all quite memorable.

Sporting an all-star cast, the voice acting is top notch which brings each of the characters to life with standout performances from Elijah Wood as Shay and Jennifer Hale best known for her work on Mass Effect (Femshep) as the megalomaniacal computer. The soundtrack is also well done, fitting the mood and atmosphere of the game perfectly.

Unfortunately, the game is quite linear and doesn’t really offer much in terms of re-playability. The different dialogue options add a bit of humor but have little to no impact on the story. For example: choosing to lie to certain characters won’t change the way they perceive you and will have the same effect as telling the truth.

Act one is also fairly short, lasting around 4 hours and it ends with a bit of a cliffhanger which will leave you anxiously waiting for Act two. Broken Age probably would have benefited from being released all at once but Act two is promised at no additional cost at a later date.

Overall, Broken Age is a charming game with a strong narrative, great humor and memorable characters. It’s proof that there is still room for creativity and innovation amidst the slew of modern action titles. Broken Age not only revives the point and click genre, it helps redefine it.

TLDR? This review is also available in video format:

Pros:

+ Strong Narrative
+ Solid Voice Acting
+ Great Sense of Humor
+ Reasonable Puzzles
+ Fantastic Art Direction
+ Charming and Unique


Cons:

- Cliffhanger Ending
- Short Length (3 - 4 hours long)
- Linear
- Dialogue Options have little influence on the story.
