The Double Fine Adventure Has A Name: Broken Age

By Adam Smith on March 25th, 2013.

The Double Fine Adventure has a name and a website. It’s called Broken Age, which strikes me as a decent moniker, although I’ve already started reading it as one word, rendering it all but meaningless. “The toaster is not working. It is suffering from severe brokenage.” Broken Age is a point and click adventure and it has two protagonists, both of whom are presumably playable. They are “leading parallel lives”:

The girl has been chosen by her village to be sacrificed to a terrible monster–but she decides to fight back. Meanwhile, a boy on a spaceship is living a solitary life under the care of a motherly computer, but he wants to break free to lead adventures and do good in the world. Adventures ensue.

They should have called it ‘Adventures Ensue’.
