Double Fine founder Tim Schafer has confirmed platforms for the studio's record-breaking crowd-funded point-and-click adventure game. In a new video update, Schafer announced that Double Fine Adventure will be released on the PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and "certain" Android devices.

Additionally, Schafer said that because "we got a little bit more money than we thought we were gonna get," the game will now feature voice acting. Though the game will ship with only English voices, Schafer also confirmed that in-game text will be translated into French, Italian, German, and Spanish.

Double Fine Adventure will also host a closed beta, which will be accessible exclusively through Valve's digital distribution platform Steam, and only to Kickstarter backers who pledged $15 or more. Lastly, Schafer announced that a digital-rights-management-free version will be made available to those who helped fund the project.

Double Fine's Adventure game made waves when its crowd-funding campaign eclipsed its target of $400,000 in about eight hours. The crowd fund reached over $1 million in its first 24 hours and presently boasts a support tally of $1.86 million with 26 days until the campaign ends.
