About Broken Age
The first graphic adventure by Tim Schafer in 16 years, Broken Age began life as a historic, record-breaking crowdfunding campaign, and the first Act was made available to preview in early 2014.
Now the full adventure is here in all its beautiful, 2D, hand-painted glory! It's launching simultaneously on a multitude of platforms, and features an original orchestral soundtrack plus an all-star vocal cast, including Elijah Wood, and Jennifer Hale.
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 the characters and their individual stories, helping them take control of their own lives, and dealing with the unexpected adventures that follow.
As the game begins, Vella is chosen by her village to have the honor of being sacrificed to the terrible monster Mog-Chothra, but having no interest in being devoured by a horrible beast, she decides to go against ages old tradition and escape.
Meanwhile somewhere in space, Shay is living a solitary life under the care of a very motherly computer, and while his every need is taken care of in every way imaginable, he wishes for nothing more than to break free from the monotony and have some real adventures.
Broken Age development began when we asked our community if they would help us create a classic-style adventure game without needing to rely on traditional publishers. It turns out they did.
And ever since day one, 2 Player Productions has been recording the whole process in an ongoing series of in-depth episodes documenting the creation of a game. You can Check out the YouTube playlist or Buy it here
