Broken Age Act 2 is now fully funded thanks to the success of Act 1, Double Fine has confirmed.

Double Fine Adventure secured Kickstarter backing of $3.4 million and was originally planned to launch as a single game titled Broken Age. Double Fine later split the game into two acts, with sales of the first part to help fund the development of the second.

"We've made enough that we can make the second half of the game for sure," Double Fine boss Tim Schafer told GamesIndustry International. "And we're not done making it to all the platforms because we haven't released it on iPad yet."

Act 2 should arrive in April or May as a free update to those who own Act 1.

Oh look no one brought act 1. I guess we should stop now.

Oh look loads of people brought act one lets make act two.

People wont buy 2 without having 1 so selling it in 2 parts is important. I dont see a problem.

Note to self. Dont be so inconsistent with numbers and letter. testing testing 1 two 3

So why was this not under Early Access on Steam if the game is only half finished? I don't like Early Access as it is but this takes the piss a little.

I didn't realise they needed even more money to finish Act 2.

So basically they have funded their next game byyyyyyy… making and selling a successful game.

This confuses me a little. April/May is just 2/3 months away. They're hardly making all of act 2 in that little amount of time. Act 1 isn't out all that long. So they must have most of act 2 in the bag by now.
