Broken Age: Act 2 dodders toward completion 21 Oct, 2014 / 4 comments

It's been awhile since we've had anything firm, hard, or otherwise unyielding to pressure with regard to the second half of Broken Age, but Double Fine has offered an update a few days ago. They published said update on their Kickstarter page, and since there's an installment of the ongoing 2 Player documentary to go along with it, the post is backer-exclusive. Which means I can't really do much but tell you to go check it out, a suggestion I make under the safe assumption that a few of your dollars rest among the 3+ million the project racked up.

In the absence of a link, I can give you the Cliff Notes version, which is that Tim has finished writing the game, and the voice recording is nearing an end. There's a few other milestone factoids like that, but what they get vague about real quick is the release date you likely sought. In light of that I'm gonna go ahead and assume we won't get to play this until 2015, which is fine by me, because Remi has made short work of my free time lately.

    Damn it will take a looooooooooooooooooong time before my Kickstarter boxed copy of the full Broken Age and the bluray of the documentary comes, maybe in 2016?

    They really messed up the time schedule and budget for this game, eh? Oh well, at least we got Tim to finally make an adventure game again.

    They're going to be increasing difficulty for the second chapter, which will also be longer than the first.

    I didn't think the difficulty was too bad for the first act of an adventure game. Even the classic LucasArts adventures were pretty easy at first and increased in difficulty as the game went on.

    Sorry to say that BA was so disappointing to me that I'm not even waiting for part2 to be completed. Graphic is nice but it reminds me a book for kids, puzzles are not structured enough and the plot didnt hook me enough. Dont know... For such amount of money from kickstarter I was expecting much much more.
