Broken Age, a point-and-click adventure game by the founder of Double Fine Productions, Tim Schafer, is now available on Steam.

The game that began as a Kickstarter project titled ‘Double Fine Adventure’ received a record-breaking $3,336,371 pledged and earned 87,142 backers. Their goal of $400,000 worth of pledges was achieved in just over eight hours.

With the help of thousands of supporters, Broken Age features an all-star voice cast including Elijah Wood, Jack Black, Wil Wheaton, Jennifer Hale and Pendleton Ward.

The key features of the game, according to the product release page, are as follows:
– Original soundtrack, composed by Peter McConnell
– Dialog Trees
– Jokes (“Unless you don’t think they’re funny, in which case we totally weren’t trying to be funny.”)
– A whole bunch of awesome PUZZLES (“This one really hard puzzle that you won’t get but you’ll look it up online and not tell anybody.”)
– “All your hopes and dreams”

The game follows two teenagers – Vella Tartine and Shay Volta. The player can freely switch between controlling the two teens who are facing similar situations in drastically different worlds.
