Broken Age: Act 2 Release Plans

A Kickstarter update from Double Fine announces backers should now be getting their copies of Broken Age: Act 2, saying this should be released to the public tomorrow. Here's word on how the second half of the adventure will roll out:
Be on the lookout for an email from Humble Bundle with special instructions for getting the game early on Steam. Then play Broken Age! Your old save game will work, but I personally recommend starting over from the beginning. Now, now, no grumbling. You don't HAVE to. I can't force you. YET. But you really should, and after all, it won't take you long since you know all the puzzles. :) There are just so many hints and story set ups that happen in Act 1 that you need to remember for Act 2 to make sense. Plus, achievements! Anyway, whatevs. You don't have to start over. That's just my recommendation. I'm like that waiter that tells you how to eat your food. No actual legal authority, but you know he's right about the ponzu sauce.

Sounds like a cliche, but it's a fact: This has been a long and crazy journey that we've all been on together. It's been a documentary and a phenomenon and a news item, but now it's just a game. And I really hope you like it because you helped to make it. And not just with your money. :)

Everybody else gets the game on Tuesday. It comes out that day on PC/Mac/Linux, and also PS4, VITA, OUYA, iPad, iPhone, and Android! So please tell all your friends! Feel free to be loud about it! We need to make sure the internet is filled with Broken Age buzz on Tuesday so everybody the world over knows that adventure games aren't dead! Well, I guess they heard that three years ago, but I think it's time they all hear it again.

Funny that they throw that out there, given that this wasn't supposed to be two games to begin with. No thanks. After the huge disappointment for me that was the first part and what a mismanaged disaster this project is, I think I'll just jump into the second part and hope it's less boring and short as the first one.

The huge disappointment was solely because you thought it was boring and short or was there more? Not trying to troll or fanboy, I'm seriously interested in the criticism. I thought it was a damn good game. I'm very excited for the second half since it's expected to be longer and more difficult, but I probably won't get to the new stuff tonight.

In other news apparently the Nordic Games disc version has been leaked and is around for already 4 days or so... meaning pirates played Act 2 earlier than Backers

That's an innovative way to punish pirates, have them play a Double Fine game. Who downloaded this thinking it would be good?

I never downloaded part 1. I wonder if there is a way to stitch them together so you don't have to launch 2 separate games.

On Steam Act 2 is patched into the game. There are no separate executables.

Cool... I registered my copy on Steam when part 1 came out... just never installed it.

Thanks.

Shouldn't Tim be making out with his boyfriend Peter right about now?

I'd love if they released a Youtube video of them doing that in a pile of backer money, just to see the squawking from outrage-addicts.

The "special instructions" are to opt-in to the beta version with the base Broken Age game. The email implies you need to redeem a separate key, but that's what they tell you on the Humble store.

Same here. I started it a couple weeks ago and played for a few hours. Decided to stop fearing they may wipe/break save games.
