Broken Age available to backers today, launches for everyone else Jan. 28

Posted on January 14, 2014 AT 05:45pm

If you didn’t back the Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter in March of 2012, you’ll only have to wait two more weeks to play Act I of Broken Age, Double Fine announced today.

The ode to the classic point-and-click adventure, which features the voices of Elijah Wood, Wil Wheaton, and Jack Black (among others) will release to the public on PC, Mac, and Linux on Jan. 28, and if you pre-order the game via Steam, you’ll get a 10 percent discount. Backers, meanwhile, have already gotten their hands on the game, which is Tim Schafer’s first foray into the genre that made him an industry icon since 1998′s Grim Fandago on PC. While Act II of Broken Age doesn’t have a specific release date just yet, it’ll be available as a free update to both backers and those who purchased the game separately when it hits later this year.

Double Fine has also lifted their review embargo, which was previously set for Jan. 27, so you can expect EGM’s take on Tim Schafer’s latest zany adventure very soon—possibly even later today!
