Backers of Double Fine’s adventure game Broken Age have been told that Broken Age: Act 2 has been delayed to sometime in early 2015.
The official statement posted on the developer’s forums states that Act 2 should be available for Alpha testing by the end of this year. Even though development is going “super fast,” more time is needed to ensure the game’s quality and hence the release was decided to be pushed back by a bit.
“The goal now is to get all the finale work done so we can hit Alpha on all of Act 2 by the end of the year.” reads the statement. “That means, as you may have guessed based on recent updates and documentary episodes, the Act 2 ship that will deliver the complete adventure is now looking like it will be early next year.”
Broken Age saw to a total crowd-funding of more than $3.3 million from 87,142 backers. However, that was still not enough to complete the entire game. Double Fine ultimately decided to split the game into two acts with the second act awaiting release. Reviews of the first act have been pretty good and that would be a major boost to the studio to go all out for the next one.
