Broken Age Part 1 This Month; Preorders Underway

Steam News announces that Steam is now accepting preorders of Broken Age, revealing Double Fine's point-and-click adventure will be released to the public on January 28th for $24.99, with preorders at a 10% discount. This follows earlier news that the game will not be offered as an Early Access release, so this will be the full version of Part 1, with Part 2 to follow as a free release "later this year." Here's word:

The first graphic adventure by Tim Schafer in sixteen years, Broken Age began two years ago in a historic, record-breaking Kickstarter campaign. Now it's here in all it's beautiful, 2D, hand-painted glory, with an original orchestral soundtrack and an all-star vocal cast.

Broken Age is a timeless coming-of-age story of barfing trees and talking spoons. Vella Tartine and Shay Volta are two teenagers in strangely similar situations, but radically different worlds. The player can freely switch between their stories, helping them take control of their own lives, and dealing with the unexpected adventures that follow.

They said adventure games were dead, but then Broken Age punched its hand out of the grave and grabbed you by the wrist and you screamed just like in the end of Carrie except what you screamed was "I love adventure games so much!" And sorry I spoiled the end of Carrie.
