Tim Shafer is finally back to the point & click genre with Broken Age, the "kickstarted" game which was released on January 28. Apart from the lack of challenge (which can probably be explained by the desire to introduce the genre to newcomers), absolutely everything about this game is first class: the writing is superb, the soundtrack and voice cast are top notch, the art style is beautiful. In other words, you should give the game a try like we did, you won't regret it.

Imaginative, charming, hilarious, witty. Only got stumped on one puzzle, which was warranted as it was a riddle. Finished this last night, the ending blew my mind. Very clever red herring before.

In terms of amount of funny item interactions and challenging puzzles, Broken Sword 5 had more but both are must-plays for adventure fans. Well deserved crowdfunding.

About the game


What's up?
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus at least it run like a bige pile of hunking crap. 1-5fps for such a shitty looking 2D game (even if the detailed zoom-in/out 2d arte is cool) vs a 30fps LiS. comparison by my gaming toaster. (3 Hours ago)

    nostradamus Oxenfree is made w/ Unity, by default its shit. (3 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @asdfg: No update since N:A launched on Steam. What was updated was Kaldaien's mod, which is a Steam user who made a mod/tool to fix resolution, framerate and other issues with the game. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Ironically, Oxenfree has far many more rarely used words than Life is Strange. Though the game is very good. Still, Life is Strange is eons better because it leaves a mark you never forget. (6 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @Sdarts: I'm not sure I buy it.. if that's Obama he got awfully pale. Plus that takes place dozens of years in the future, no? (9 Hours ago)

    asdfg @Sdarts: read that they have recently released an update which ups performance a lot. (9 Hours ago)
