The first graphic adventure by Tim Schafer in sixteen years, Broken Age began in a historic, record-breaking Kickstarter campaign. Now it's here in all its beautiful, 2D, hand-painted glory, with an original orchestral soundtrack and an all-star vocal cast.

Broken Age is a timeless coming-of-age story of barfing trees and talking spoons. Vella Tartine and Shay Volta are two teenagers in strangely similar situations, but radically different worlds. The player can freely switch between their stories, helping them take control of their own lives, and dealing with the unexpected adventures that follow.

They said adventure games were dead, but then Broken Age punched its hand out of the grave and grabbed you by the wrist and you screamed just like in the end of Carrie except what you screamed was "I love adventure games so much!" And sorry I spoiled the end of Carrie.

  1. Nice game
    by Lolek, Slovenia - Jul 14th 2018

    It's a nice point & click adventure game. Worth picking up, especially if it's on sale.

  2. Loved It!
    by Kellina G., USA - Jan 4th 2018

    This really is a fantastic game! The storyline and the characters are so well developed that the game will completely engross you. I especially loved the humor, specifically Jack Black's character. His character was hilarious and had me laughing at every comment the character made. This game mainly consists of pointing and clicking and figuring out puzzles. As previous reviews have mentioned, episode one's puzzles were more logical and easier to figure out. Episode two's puzzles were definitely harder and had me looking at walkthroughs on occasion. Nevertheless, don't let episode two's difficulty cloud your judgement about the overall quality of this game. If you do, you would be missing out on an outstanding game.

  3. Not as good as imagined
    by P@l@din, Germany - Jan 1st 2018

    So, here it is now: Broken Age, one of the great Hopes in kickstarter games. It's a decent adventure, but not so special and good as everyone hoped for. Nontheless you will have fun, but there are other adventures here, that you will have more fun with.
