Broken Age is a family friendly, hand-animated, puzzle-filled adventure game with an all-star cast, including Elijah Wood, Jack Black and Masasa Moyo.
Funded by a record breaking crowdfunding campaign and designed by industry legend Tim Schafer, 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.

Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyable if frustrating in places
Looking at some of the other reviews I can see their point - there are places, particularly in the second part, where it’s close to impossible to work out how to achieve something without referring to a guide of some sort. Overall though a great game with beautiful artwork, lovely music, lots of quirky characters (most of whom seem to have ‘issues’ of some sort or another) and entertaining dialogue. I’ll need to play it again to spot all the clues I missed first time round!
Excellent, work of art, story, design, gameplay. Truly unique experience
Great adventure game, but...
… the 2nd act is completely disjointed and impossible to finish without online help. Plus the ending sequence only works if tasks are carried out in an exact sequence between Shay and Vella. Otherwise this game is fantastic! Beautiful hand drawn graphics and excellent problem solving puzzles - in the 1st act. Very enjoyable and fun to play even if the 2nd act ruins the flow of what could otherwise be an absolute classic game of this genre. Still worth downloading, a fun game. More please Double Fine Productions!
