The first half of Broken Age was released in January this year and it appears as we will have to wait one year or thereabouts for the second half to arrive. Double Fine's Greg Rice recently posted a Project Update on the Double Fine forums wherein he confirmed that both Shay's and Vella's halves are in alpha and playable from start to finish now. What remains is getting the big finale into alpha, and naturally some spit and shine. The final VO recording of the time is scheduled for this week, so it would seem everything is starting to come together. Finally.

"Playtimes of just Act 2 have ranged from 8-12 hours, the puzzles seem to be providing a good level of challenge, nothing is really standing out as needing to be heavily re-worked, and most importantly people are laughing a lot and seem really pleased with where the story goes. YAY!"

"The goal now is to get all the finale work done so we can hit Alpha on all of Act 2 by the end of the year. That means, as you may have guessed based on recent updates and documentary episodes, the Act 2 ship that will deliver the complete adventure is now looking like it will be early next year."

Early next year it is then. Fingers crossed.

"It may not be Tim Schafer's most memorable work, but it offers a nice treatment of some themes that are seldom well represented in video games."

REVIEW. Written by Bengt Lemne

"What really elevates Broken Age from just a nice story with simple and proven point-and-click mechanics, is the presentation."
