Act 1 of Broken Age, the Kickstarter funded graphic adventure, will be released to non-backers on January 28 for Windows, Mac and Linux, Double Fine Productions has announced.
Act 2 will ship later this year as a free update for all owners of the game.
Furthermore, versions for iOS, Ouya and Android will ship in the future.
"It's been sixteen years since I've made an adventure game, almost twenty years since I've made a point-and-click, and just shy of two years since I dared the internet to force me to make one," said Double Fine president and Broken Age writer/designer Tim Schafer. "Coming back to the genre has been like finding an old jacket in a box in your garage that you haven't worn in twenty years, but once you shake the dust off and put it on you realize it's an amazing jacket and it still fits, and once you patch the holes in the pockets it could easily take a spot in your main jacket rotation."
Broken Age tells the story of Vella Tartine and Shay Volta, two teenagers in strangely similar situations but radically different worlds. Players can freely switch between the two characters.
Backers of the game were granted access to Act 1 yesterday.
