Double Fine To Release Broken Age Part 1 To Backers Next Week


Remember the “Double Fine Adventure,” the Kickstarter campaign that kickstarted Kickstarter? The result of that campaign, Broken Age part 1, is scheduled for release on January 14th, for the game’s backers, designer Tim Schafer announced via Twitter.


Broken Age is an adventure game by Double Fine, and is well known for being one of the very first Kickstarter projects to gain popularity, raking in $3.3 million in contributions, despite a goal of just $400,000.


However, in July 2013, Double Fine announced that they would require more finances to finish development of Broken Age, and that, as a result, they were going to release the game in two parts. Part one will be made available via Steam Early access on Jan. 14th.
