Project Update-3/22/15
Soooooooo, we’ve got something exciting to tell you all. WE JUST LOCKED THE BROKEN AGE RELEASE CANDIDATE!! After a solid month of pure bug squashing we have a build that’s looking super duper polished and ready to roll. Big props to the entire team for absolutely killing it and delivering something that really is everything we hoped it would be and more. I know it’s been a long wait, so thanks again for being so patient with us and allowing us to take the time we needed to make the game as good as possible!

So now what?! The build will sit in test for the next week while everyone on the team looks for any remaining issues that may have slipped through the cracks. Then it’s off to PlayStation 4 and Vita certification as well as pressing discs for the PC/Mac/Linux retail copy from our pals at Nordic Games. Those processes can take around a month, during which time we’ll be packaging up and prepping the iOS, Android, and Ouya builds so we can hit with everything on the same day! Speaking of the release date....

Release Date Announce and IGN Coverage

We’re going to announce the release date next week as part of a bunch of coverage that IGN is going to be running on the game throughout the week! It will all be on the front page of IGN, so keep an eye out for that news, as well as an interview with Tim and preview coverage of Act 2! Should be an awesome way to kick off formal promotion of the game’s release!

Documentary Update

Now that we’ve locked the build, the 2 Player Productions guys are pretty much done with filming for the next episode, save a few interviews. It’s just a matter of locking down the cut and doing an audio pass before the next episode is in your inboxes. That should hit around the time of launch in a month or so!

We’ll make sure to get the new episode to you guys first, but it’s been really awesome to have more folks watching and talking about the game through the public release of the doc! Please let your non-backers friends know they can join in on the fun now over on our Youtube channel.

Thanks for the patience y'all!m Will have the game to you soon!

Thank you so much!
It seems like it's really gonna be something like April 28th...
I'm a little bit disappointed to be frank: I was hoping for the game to come out in a couple weeks.
Oh well... A month isn't that long :).
I'm really looking forward to play act 2!

Super excited to get this in Android. I don't care waiting a little extra to get a stable release.

Wow great! I have missed the Kickstarter when it was going on and just yesterday bought the documentary separately. Watching it these days. As a developer myself I can feel with you but also take great relief in seeing you are struggling with similar things. You guys at DF are doing a great job. All thumbs I can possibly find UP! :)

Oh, yay, I'm so excited! I loved Act 1 when I played it last year and I've had a resurgence of Broken Age feels lately with the release of the documentary. I wasn't a backer, but I want to thank the team and the backers for their generosity in allowing it to be open to the public. Time to bump the speculation threads for a last round of theorising!

I think you'll understand, hype will not work this time. Don't get me wrong, i sincerely hope it will be a good game, but we'll see about that after release.

Suit yourself mister grumpy pants. I've played act 1 and enjoyed it. I don't need hype, I just want to play act 2. Looking forward to it!

Thanks. Considering most of us have already bought the Steam version I don't see why we have to wait for the console versions to ship before you'll send us our second half of the game. Selling half a game is ok, but once you already have the money there's no need to satisfy your customers in a timely, reasonable manner?
Hell, I'll enjoy it anyway.

So what you're basically saying is, "Screw how business needs to run. I WANT IT NOWWWWWWWWWW"

Veruca Salt a friend of yours? ;)
