Elijah Wood will provide the voice of Broken Age’s male protagonist, Shay, creator Tim Schaffer announced today during Spike’s VGX awards.

Shay joins a list of notable voice talent that includes Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward, Jack Black, Jennifer Hale (FemShep), Cree Summer, Richard Horitz, Will Wheaton, and many others.

According to Shaffer, Elijah Wood’s character, Shay, is the survivor of a world-destructing cataclysmic event. He’s kept aboard a life-preserving spaceship ran by an AI that babies him like an overbearing mother, driving him to take the ship into a time-space anomaly (which inevitably causes him to cross paths with female protagonist Vessa (Masasa Moyo, BioShock Infinite, Halo ODST).

The first part of Broken Age launches on Windows PC, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, Android, and Ouya January 2014.
