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.

What's up?
  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I would honestly be surprised if both the next Xbox and ps5 don't just look like simple black plastic boxes. (15 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I can't imagine Sony coming along 10 years too late and adopting that styling when it's clearly not what is considered good design anymore. (15 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I just look at Sony's consumer design and it doesn't fit at all. Electronics are about clean lines and boxy shapes. Even in the PC space that fuck ugly vent covered alien ware design has fizzled out. (15 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @MrWhite: for the same reason they stuck a big metal.faceplate to the PS4 dev kit? I mean. They could have just made that a plastic box too. (15 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite It looks like a big dirty wifi router of some sort. Which makes sense if you think about where gaming is going. Especially if they want to make the PSVR2 wireless. (15 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite Yeah, but as I say, why not just make it a big ugly box, then? Why's it that shape? could be wrong, like. But if its close to the actual thing, I wouldnt be shocked. (15 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I hope it looks fuck all like it. And thankfully I'm pretty certain it won't look anything like that. Sony don't make consumer stuff that look like that. (15 Hours ago)
