Broken Age: the latest crowdfunded point-and-clicker

Double Fine Productions has revealed that it will launch the game, which was funded by a Kickstarter campaign.

Broken Age follows the story of a young boy and girl leading parallel lives, one on a spaceship and one battling a monster.

Some time last year, the US-based Double Fine Productions (headed by Tim Schafer of Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle fame) announced it was launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a forthcoming point-and-click adventure.

It's fair to say the campaign was a success, largely due to Schafer's legendary status, raising more than $3.3 million (Dh12m). The game has finally been revealed and it's called Broken Age, which follows the story of a young boy and girl leading parallel lives, one on a spaceship and one battling a monster, naturally.

There's no word on when the game will come out, but it's not too late to back the project and follow its development.
