I stayed up late last night and finished playing through Broken Age Act 1. I grew up on Tim Schafer adventure games, so this one was a real treat! The artwork was fantastic (Nathan Stapley is the best!) the voice acting is great, and the writing is so wonderfully colorful without being wacky or silly. There are still lots of poop jokes though! It was super refreshing to just sit and chill with a game, not having to worry about the dexterity side of playing, but still be really engaged in what’s going on. Can’t wait for Act 2!
I had to try and steal some of the awesome creative energy that went into this game, so I did a drawing/painting of my two favorite, non speaking, characters. Jesse is the spirited blue bird and Grabbin’ Gary is the little robot. They both save the day!
