Broken Age is a family friendly, hand-animated, puzzle-filled adventure game with an all-star cast, including Elijah Wood, Jack Black and Masasa Moyo.

Funded by a record breaking crowdfunding campaign and designed by industry legend Tim Schafer, Broken Age is a timeless coming-of-age story of barfing trees and talking spoons.

Vella Tartine and Shay Volta are two teenagers in strangely similar situations, but radically different worlds. The player can freely switch between their stories, helping them take control of their own lives, and dealing with the unexpected adventures that follow.

Starring:

Elijah Wood as Shay
Masasa Moyo as Vella
Jack Black as Harm'ny Lightbeard
Jennifer Hale as Mom
Wil Wheaton as Curtis
Pendleton Ward as Gus

This is a real surprise and a great treat! Loving this on the PC so far, the visuals and the voice acting are superb. Besides, it's Double Fine!

Playing VVVVVV while Broken Age is downloading. This can't be true!

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

Finding 5 bucks under the bed is a nice surprise. This is amazing!

Nothing about the release anywhere, not even on Double Fine's Twitter. I wonder if it was accidental.

Not a mistake, official promotion will likely start tomorrow. In the meantime, here's the trailer for the PC version, which is nearly identical to the iPad release.
