Controller and Touch Support!

16 April 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 Februar 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!

Reviews

“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

Über das Spiel

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

Derjenige der auf der Suche nach einem "klassischen" Adventure ist, war auch schon vor 2 Jahren besser bei den Titeln von Wadjet Eye Games aufgehoben. Was Tim Schafer und Double Fine hier kreiert haben, ist viel mehr eine Homage an die alte Zeit, ein kurzer Ausflug in eine Welt voll skuriler Charaktere, fantastischer Apparate und bizarrer Aufgaben.
Wir können die komplexen Pixel nicht zurückbringen, aber wir dürfen uns an sie erinnern.

Broken Age ist eine Gelegenheit sich eine Geschichte noch einmal auf eine andere Art erzählen zu lassen, ein kurzes, aber auch fesselndes Abenteuer.
Die Rätsel sind logisch und nicht zufällig, das Zuschauen macht Spaß und die Atmosphäre ist dank der künstlerischen Gestaltung einzigartig.
Zwischen all den Aufgüssen bekannter Spiele und Stile, tut es einfach gut, mal auf etwas Abwechslung zu stoßen.

Nice, but too simple!

This is not a classical Point'n'Click Adventure. It's a castrated one where you just "follow the path" while only "clicking and not bending your brain", e.g. for combining inventory or finding an untraditional way to solve a problem ("use wax lips with funny clown" -> bang). The game feels like a kid's game, ported for the mainstream and mobile market.

Pros:
+ This game is very polished and has a strong voice cast (but audio lines repeat too often if you click twice on an object). The settings and characters are lovely painted and have a certain kind of humour.
+ The story is nice, but nothing spectactular. Vella's part is the more interesting one.

Cons:
- Way too short! We don't hear anything about part 2. Maybe it's cancelled or moved to the next century - who knows.
- Few puzzles and too easy.
- Nearly no inventory management or decisions. You just click through the setting, through your inventory, through the dialogues - you feel like on rails.
- Dumbed down interface - you just have "click". Maybe this does fit to mobile devices but as a PC player you feel cheated as we are used to "use", "look", "speak", etc..
- Empty places. Often you click through diverse screens and don't see anybody. The game makes you feel lonely.

Suggestion:
- If you like modern Point'n'Click adventures made in the "classical" style (humour, inventory, puzzles), then go for all "KING ART" adventures (Book of Unwritten Tales series), for the Deponia series, "Whispered World" and of course the remakes of Monkey Island.
- If you like old-school retro Point'n'Click, maybe go for Gemini Rue or the Blackwell series.
- If you like modern style movie-like adventures go for the Telltale games.

Broken Age does not fit in a common category as it is neither a classical nor retro nor movie-like Point'n'Click. Broken Age wants to be everything but fails and so it's only a "nice and mainstream" game.

Maybe I will change my mind when someday part 2 will come up...

The Game itself is only a Shadow of what a real Lucasarts Adventure should look like.
If you like Content that is designed for 7-9 year old Kids, this is for you...
Wouldnt back it again with the knowledge of today, sorry Double Fine :(

If you want a "real" Point and Click Adventure, check out "Resonance" ;-)

Der Erste Akt ist zwar schöne gemacht und ist sehr stimmig. Jedoch waren die Rätsel viel zu einfach. Außerdem war der das Spiel bis jetzt viel zu kurz. Mir ist klar dass ein zweiter Akt gratis dazu erscheint, wenn dieser aber nicht mindestens 3mal so lang ist wie der erste war es das Geld auf keinen Fall wert. Egal wie gut das hübsch das Spiel gemacht ist.

Broken Age empfehle ich momentan eher für point&click Anfänger.

Have been expecting much more from this game and kind of disappointed, especially after it was hyped by so many sources. Can't really figure out why, but it doesnt hook me up. Probably the latest Telltale games just set the new standard so enormously high, that Broken Age can't reach it...

Ein sehr schönes Adventure von Tim Schafer.
Leider etwas kurz und die Rätsel könnten ruhig etwas schwerer und zahlreicher sein.
Außerdem würde ich mir an manchen Orten mehr Hotspots wünschen einfach nur, um auch mit mehr
Dingen usw. interagieren und rumspielen zu können, die ich jetzt nicht unbedingt zur Lösung des nächsten Rätsels brauche.
Aber die Atmosphäre, die schrägen Charaktere, die witzigen Dialoge und der Grafikstil sind echt top.
Auch die Story finde ich vor allem zum Ende hin echt gut.

Ich hatte das Spiel auf Kickstarter gebacked und bin bisher sehr zufrieden mit dem Spiel.
Jedenfalls wurde ich vom Spiel bis zum Ende von Teil 1 sehr gut unterhalten. Ich habe die Hoffnung, dass die Rätseldichte im 2. Teil noch zunimmt.
