Broken Age ™
By Double Fine Productions, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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 its 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.
Act 1 is available for purchase now, and Act 2 will be available as a free update on April 28th. Note: this app supports devices from the iPad 2 forward.

I don't usually do reviews of any apps unless they're terribly bad or majestically amazing but in this case, I'm just speechless.
I know it's a bit expensive for an app but trust me, you will enjoy every part of this beautifully made game. I felt like watching an amazing Disney movie and at the same time be part of it. The graphics are stunning!! The story is quite powerful to be a game, the characters are funny, clever, sarcastic, it's simply phenomenal!
I can't wait to see Act 2
If you like adventure games, beautiful graphics and original stories, you won't regret getting this game!
Great game, but…
I'm hanging out for the next update. You said that when this game first came out, Act 2 would be available as a free update later this year. I am disappointed. You lied! You now changed it to "Act 2 will be available as an in-app purchase in the future". Liar! Ok, next game you make, please don't release it until all the parts to the story are complete and all the kinks are completely gone.
Other than that, great game, beautiful graphics, and wonderful storyline! I loved every minute I played this game.
Amazing, Flawless and Beautiful
Best app I have ever had. Amazing story and beautiful graphics. Defiantly not a waste of money, had to look up a few cheats to understand what to do but defiantly worth it.
Get this app for the great adventure you will go on. I got connected to the characters! Absolutely amazing.
