The hype behind Tim Schafer’s “Broken Age” was unbelievable, even when it was just a Kickstarter project in the beginning. The market for point-and-click adventure games is steadily growing, and Broken Age’s popularity – especially in the iOS platform where it first launched – is just evidence for that fact. Now the game is finally arriving on Android, ten months after it was initially launched.
The game follows two narratives – users will alternately control Vella, a girl destined to be sacrificed by her fantasy village, and Shay, a boy trapped on a spaceship controlled by an artificial intelligence gone bad. One of the coolest things about Broken Age is that it gives the user the ability to switch between both protagonists at any time.
Needless to say, the hand-painted art in the game is just gorgeous. The voice cast for the story includes such celebrities as Elijah Wood, Masasa Moyo, Jack Black, Wil Wheaton, Pendleton Ward, and Jennifer Hale. This should make for pretty interesting gaming. See the trailer below.
For the measly price of USD$9.99, you get not just Act 1 (like for the iOS users) but the full game if you decide to pick it up from the Google Play Store today. Smells like a good deal, folks. Check out the download link below as well.
