Double Fine Adventure is now called Broken Age

Point-and-click adventure game follows the adventure of a boy and a girl living parallel lives.

Developer Double Fine has announced Broken Age as the title of its Kickstarter success story Double Fine Adventure.

Broken Age is a point-and-click adventure that revolves around the stories of a young boy and girl who lead parallel lives. The boy lives in isolation under the protection of a motherly computer and longs for adventure, whereas the girl has been chosen to be sacrificed to a monster but decides to fight back.

The player will switch between both characters during the course of the game.

Double Fine has also opened preorders for the game on its website, offering a DRM-free version of Broken Age on the PC, Mac, and Linux for $15.

$30 gets players Backer Access, which gives access to exclusive backer-only forums, a digital soundtrack, access to development materials, and all the episodes of 2 Player Productions' documentary series charting the development of the title.

Both the regular and Backer editions provide access to the Broken Age beta, but the site has no mention of a release date.

Broken Age, when it was known as Double Fine Adventure, raised over $3.3 million on crowd-funding site Kickstarter from over 87,000 backers in March last year.

This looks interesting, I had many happy times back in the day playing the lucasarts adventures, Grim fandango being my favourite hint hint.

Did anyone else get a slightly epic vibe from the explanation of the story basis? I know it's not a new concept, but the way it was worded makes it sound awesome.

Every time I see an article about Double Fine, I keep hoping for a Psychonauts sequel announcement. :(

The artwork and the premise are looking good.  I hope Double Fine delivers yet again.

So PC, Mac, and Linux? No console support? That's surprising and a little disappointing given Schafer's long term support. I loved The Cave, Stacking and all of his other works, so I hope this one comes console side or I'm going to be sad to miss my first Schafer game.

Double Fine are in a broken age.  Thanks for the horribly mediocre Brutal Legend.  Don't forget to add gameplay next time.

This will appeal to both female and males as well as black and white people. Smart move double fine.

I hope this game will be huge success and Tim will think about making next classic adventure.

Looks good but I hope they still make more commercial games like Psychonauts in the future.

Can't wait for this. The 2 Player Productions docs have been great so far - about 4 and a half hours of quality development footage so far.

Hopefully they release a retail version for non-backers. It gives great insight into the game-making process.

Aside from Ken Levine, I can always rely on Tim Schafer to deliver.  Anyone that doesn't know the man needs to get a clue! :P

The premise is intriguing, and I'm digging the art style.  This one goes on my watch list.
