Controller and Touch Support!

April 16th, 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

February 18th, 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 recommed 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

About the Game

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!
