Double Fine’s Broken Age: Act II is fully funded

The concluding chapter of Double Fine’s Broken Age has secured all the funding that it needs, according to boss Tim Schafer.

Broken Age was split into two parts following its Kickstarter success so that sales of Act I could help fund the development of Act II. ”We’ve made enough that we can make the second half of the game for sure,” Schafer told GamesIndustry International. ”And we’re not done making it to all the platforms because we haven’t released it on iPad yet.”

“We’ve shipped enough that people can see we weren’t kidding, and that’s a big relief,” he added. ”Because I think there’s a lot of pressure on Kickstarter projects, especially the really big Kickstarter projects, to just not screw it up for everybody else.

“It’s such a great, positive thing for us, and being able to be funded by our fans opens so many doors for us to do original, creative things that we just wanted to live up to [expectations].”

Broken Age: Act I launched January 14 for Kickstarter backers and hit Steam a few days later for everyone else. Act II is set to release a free update for the game in either April or May.
