  • Broken Age is an episodic point-and-click adventure video game, Tim Schafer's first return to the genre since 1998's Grim Fandango. The game is produced and distributed by Schafer's Double Fine Productions for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, Android, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita platforms. The game is currently being developed in two acts; the first was released on January 28, 2014, with the second set for release in early 2015. Broken Age began under the working title Double Fine Adventure as a Kickstarter crowdfunded project promoted by Double Fine and 2 Player Productions in February 2012. Originally a goal of $400,000 was set to cover the costs of development and documentary filming, it became the largest crowdfunded video game project at the time, raising over $3.45 million from more than 87,000 backers within the month. It remains one of the highest-backed crowdfunded projects of any type, and its success helped to establish Kickstarter and other crowdfunding mechanisms as a viable alternative to traditional venture capital and publisher funding for niche video game titles.
