The RPS Verdict: Double Fine’s Broken Age, Act 1

From the distant, waterlogged land of Bath Spa, John Walker sits at a keyboard and dreams of another world. A world by the sea. A world where 95% of its male population are bearded and wear Converse. Untold distances away, in said sea-neighbouring world of Brighton, Alec Meer also sits at a keyboard and imagines a tourist-besieged town made up of yellow buildings and fading…

Broken Age Comes Out Today: Are You Going To Buy It?

Today is likely to be one of the most interesting days for Kickstarter watchers. Broken Age, the adventure game that made the crowdfunding format a gaming household name, is out on sale today. Right now, in fact. So the question that's left to be answered is: how many people are there who are interested in buying it, who weren't interested in funding it?

A Game And A Chat Ep 1: Tim Schafer

And now for something completely different. Or, well, actually kinda similar to other stuff you might have seen before, but in video form and on RPS. A Game And A Chat (tentative title, probably) is a weekly live show in which I play a game with a developer and, you know, chat with them. At the same time. I am nothing if not multi-talented. Sometimes…

Hands On: Broken Age

It's finally here. Well, if you were a backer. After almost two years since Tim Schafer kickstarted Kickstarter as one of the primary tools for funding independent videogame development, the Double Fine Adventure, Broken Age, is in players' hands. With $3.3m raised, from 90,000 backers, and a year and a half more development than they planned, the first point and click adventure Schafer has made…

Broken Age Pt 1 Launching Next Week For Backers

There's been some confusion and bad blood over the course of Broken Age's emphatically Kickstarted development cycle, but now the end (for the beta version of part one, because this is the year 2014) is nearly in sight. I guess all I can really say at this point is, break an age, Double Fine. You know, because it sounds like... like break a leg? Kinda?…

Broken Age Needs More Money, Tries Steam Early Access

HARK, A TWIST. Once upon a time, Double Fine's Kickstarter-fueled adventure Broken Age had all the money in the world. Not a single couch cushion abyss was left un-mined, nor a piggy bank kept from the slaughter. But here's the thing: apparently that wasn't quite enough. Broken Age is, in effect, on track to go broke. In a new Kickstarter update, Tim Schafer explained: "Even though…

Don’t Go Broke Age: The Humble Double Fine Bundle

"Double Fine?" someone somewhere has probably said at some point maybe. "Who do they think they are, claiming to be twice as fine as the rest of us? I'm no fool. I don't believe it for a second." But, Mr Somewhere, what if you're wrong? Then you'll just look silly, your only solace coming in the fact that going off the grid in shame would…

Double Fine’s Broken Age Receives Trailerage

Double Fine must be celebrating their crowdfunded adventure game's birthday, or some other sort of coming-of-Broken-Age event, because the game has received lots of gifts this week. First it was an actual name and a website, and now there's a trailer. Lucky Broken Age! Nobody has ever made a trailer about me and I've had more birthdays than I care to remember. This is my…

The Double Fine Adventure Has A Name: Broken Age

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.…
