Last year upon the successful crowd funding of Tim Schaefer’s game Broken Age, the developer revealed that even the raised $3.3 million would not be sufficient to bring forth what he originally had thought of. Double Fine would be needing much more than that and so the studio decided on releasing Broken Age in two parts.
Fast forward that to 2014 and Schafer has revealed the first half of the game to have done magnificently well. Speaking with GamesIndustry International, Scafer said that the release has been a success and with that part two of the game has been successfully funded.
“We’ve made enough that we can make the second half of the game for sure,” he told GamesIndustry. That though doesn’t mean they are done with the first half. Broken Age is yet to be released on the iPad like the studio promised it would.
“We’ve shipped enough that people can see we weren’t kidding, and that’s a big relief. Because I think there’s a lot of pressure on Kickstarter projects, especially the really big Kickstarter projects, to just not screw it up for everybody else. It’s such a great, positive thing for us, and being able to be funded by our fans opens so many doors for us to do original, creative things that we just wanted to live up to [expectations].”
As to when the concluding half would release is unknown.
