Broken Age

Update: Broken Age is out now in North America as expected.

Original: This past summer, Double Fine announced that it would be bringing Grim Fandango Remastered and Broken Age to Switch. One of those has just seen a surprise release in Europe.

The hand-animated, puzzle-filled adventure game Broken Age is out now, despite Double Fine not confirming it would be available today. It’s a 1.9GB download on Switch.

Here’s an overview for Broken Age, along with a trailer:

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.

Key Features:

– Original soundtrack, composed by Peter McConnell, recorded by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
– All-star voice cast, including Elijah Wood, Jack Black, Jennifer Hale, Masasa Moyo, Wil Wheaton, and Pendleton Ward
– Dialogue Trees!
– Some jokes. Unless you don’t think they’re funny, in which case we totally weren’t trying to be funny.
– A whole bunch of awesome PUZZLES
– This one really hard puzzle that you won’t get but you’ll look it up online and not tell anybody
– All your hopes and dreams

We wouldn’t be surprised if Broken Age also launches in North America today – we’ll keep you updated.

Thanks to AstronoLukeNX for the tip.
