Double Fine Adventure finally settles on Broken Age as title

What's in a name? A Double Fine Adventure by any other name would surely play as sweet, but at long last Tim Schafer and co. have decided on a title for their upcoming point-and-click adventure: Broken Age.

Broken Age tells the dual stories of a young boy and girl who lead parallel lives. The girl has been "chosen by her village to be sacrificed to a terrible monster--but she decides to fight back. Meanwhile, a boy on a spaceship is living a solitary life under the care of a motherly computer, but he wants to break free to lead adventures and do good in the world. Adventures ensue."

If you've been living under a rock for the last year (a really, really remote rock), Broken Age began life as a modest $400,000 Kickstarter appeal that blew past its target in mere hours on its way to more than $3 million in pledges. Since then, development has been documented exclusively for backers in a film series from 2 Player Productions. Until now, however, the game has continued to be known by its original working moniker, and then later as Reds.

Although there isn't much new information about the game, the official website has now been launched, including pre-order offers and even a better-late-than-never chance to back the game and get in on the pre-release documentary series.
