Broken Age Part One launching this week

Tim Schafer (and, presumably, the rest of the Double Fine team) is shaping up for a big week. The initial release of Broken Age: Part One will be made available to the project’s Kickstarter backers.

Schafer posts on Twitter:

Haven’t shipped a game of my own in 4.5 years, an adventure game in 16, a point-n-click in almost 20. Next Tuesday is going to be exciting!

Next Tuesday is going to be exciting because that’s when backers can play Broken Age, Act 1! Public release date will be announced then too.

Double Fine initially asked for US$400,000 to create a point-and-click adventure game, but quickly raised more than US$3 million. In July 2013, the studio revealed that the project had grown too big and would be split in half – using Kickstarter funds to develop Part One, and Steam Early Access sales to raise money for the second.

Broken Age will be released on PC, Mac and Linux when it gets here.
