Double Fine’s Kickstarter adventure game Broken Age has a big day coming up on April 28 on two different fronts.
First, the game’s second half will finally be released for the PC. Broken Age was split into two different parts when Double Fine came up short on its original funding plans, and Director Tim Schaffer was forced to turn to Steam Early Access for extra revenue. The plan apparently worked after Broken Age Part 1 was released to widespread acclaim, and development on the second part continued throughout the year.
Fans have anxiously been waiting to finish the game, and now they will have the chance to do so. Those who already purchased the game for $24.99 will not have to pay any extra for the game’s conclusion.
On the second front, Double Fine is also bringing the complete game to both the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. Cross-buy will be supported, so no need to pick or choose between the two options. The Vita has been my go-to platform for most of my indie gaming habits these days, so I’ll be staring down that copy in the coming year. I’m interested in seeing how Double Fine plans to incorporate the touch screen, and I’m also checking to see if the DualShock 4’s touch pad will play a role in the game.
So to recap, Broken Age part 2 launches for the PC on April 28, and the entire game launches for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on the same day.
