Double Fine Adventure is Now Called Broken Age

Double Fine Adventure is now called Broken Age.

It's a story of a boy and a girl living 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.

If you missed the kickstarter, the game can be pre-ordered from its website. You can either preorder the game (DRM free) for $15 for Windows, Mac, and Linux and get access to the beta once it's available. Or pre-order for $30 to become a backer. Backer status includes the game, private backer-only discussion forums on Double Fine's message boards, all past and ongoing episodes of 2 Player Productions' documentary series following the development of the game, a wealth of development materials from the Double Fine team, a digital soundtrack, and beta access once available.

    Is that the Sierra Half Dome logo on the left? :)

    Does anyone feel like the name is not very evocative like older Double Fine / LucasArts? Maybe I'm being nostalgic but it doesn't seem to pique my curiosity. It's like a mashup of Broken Sword and Dragon Age.



    I do think that it's a little nostalgia in play. I'm not in love with the name either, but I don't think 'The Dig' really evoked the full mystery of that game, and I think 'Full Throttle' sounds rather generic when you match it up against the weird semi-futuristic bike-centric world presented, and so forth. I suppose there were some names that immediately clicked for me, like Grim Fandango, but I can't say that all the titles I heard from that time were immediately exciting.



    Oh, yeah, and even Double Fine ones - I used to think Stacking was a very dull name, but now I'm fine with it. And Costume Quest is descriptive but not that imaginative..

    counting_pine: Good find! The new logo does look better though.

    I agree with what the others said, not quite as catchy as Tim's older game titles. Still, that art on the website looks supersweet. Can't wait for this.

    Very excited about the game. I'm not sure about the 'Broken Age' name yet though - it doesn't (yet?) sound like a 'Grim Fandango' kind of name. I think it could easily have been slapped onto a massive-scale fantasy RPG But time will tell..

    Side note: I notice the logo image is called 'brokenage_logo_new.png'
    So for perhaps a limited time, you can check out the beta logo at http://www.brokenagegame.com/images/brokenage_logo.png.

    I'm looking forward to this a whole lot. I just realized yesterday how much I miss a good adventure game.

    Someone ate a word there.
