Double Fine’s Broken Age Comes to PS4, PS Vita on April 28
After bringing us Grim Fandango Remastered earlier this year, Double Fine and PlayStation Third Party Production have announced that “the full Broken Age adventure” is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on April 28 in North America and April 29 in Europe. No price was given, but it will include cross-buy and cross-save.
Featuring “lots of pointy-clicky adventure gaming fun times,” here’s the description for Broken Age:
Broken Age tells the story of Vella and Shay, a girl and boy from completely different worlds who seem to be leading strangely parallel lives…
…Vella has been chosen by her village to have the honor of being sacrificed to the terrible monster Mog Chothra, but having no interest in being devoured by a horrible beast, must go against ages old tradition and make her escape.
Meanwhile somewhere in space, Shay is living a solitary life under the care of a very motherly computer, and whilst his every need is taken care of in every way imaginable, he wishes for nothing more than to break free from the monotonous safety of his daily life, and have some real adventures.
Featuring the work of game makers Tim Schafer, Peter Chan, and Peter McConnell, along with the art of Nathan Stapley, Broken Age’s main characters are voiced by Elijah Wood and Masasa Moyo (Team America). You’ll also hear Jack Black, Jennifer Hale, and Pendleton Ward in the game.
