Double Fine's Broken Age Act 1 now playable by all


2:15 PM on 01.28.2014



Well, this is it. After a short period during which only the backers of the Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter project had access, Broken Age Act I has now been released on Steam for all to buy and play.

As successful as the Kickstarter was, I'm very interested to see what additional sales rack up on this one. The response has been overwhelmingly positive in press and in social media, which I expect will drive a ton of purchases from fence-sitters and people who have no awareness of the development history but discover it through the hype generated by its pre-release for backers. There could be a lot more money headed Double Fine's way yet.

Review: Putty Squad

Of all of the games to get a PS4 remake, you'd probably never put Putty Squad, an SNES game from 1994, at the top of the list. But here we are in 2014 with a full-on re-imagining, with more or less the same platforming mechanics that still work nearly 20 years later. The only problem is, System 3 Software has opted to charge $29.99 for a decidedly dated game -- which is a bit of a problem.more

Review: Half-Minute Hero: The Second Coming
