Double Fine Adventure’s New Name and Story Details Unveiled at PAX


Double Fine’s adventure game was one of Kickstarter’s first huge gaming success stories. Dubbed “Double Fine Adventure” the project was to be a point-and-click adventure similar to Tim Schafer’s older games like Grim Fandango. Asking for $400,000 the team instead were given $3.3mil by devoted fans to make the game.

At PAX East details about the game were finally revealed, including its proper name “Broken Age”. According to the games website:

“Broken Age is a point-and-click adventure telling the stories of a young boy and girl 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.”

The develeopment process is also being filmed by 2 Player Productions who will release videos documenting the games creation from start to finish.

Broken Age is still available to pre-order through the site for $15 including Beta access. For $30 though access to the documentary series will be given along with other development materials.
