About

Broken Age is a classic point-and-click adventure game, which tells a story of two completely different teenagers seeking to change their life pace. The action takes place in an imaginary universe shown in a 2.5D perspective. The gameplay is divided into two main storylines, so players are able to assume the roles of both Vella Tartine and Shay Volta. The game allows switching characters at any time. Firstly, events move players to Sugar Bunting town occupied by fictional monsters called Mogs, which demand a sacrifice of young girls every 14 years. Once the protagonist Vella finds herself chosen to be the sacrificed maiden. As she tries to stay alive, she realizes that the only way out is to fight the monster and to liberate her hometown. The second story tells about Shay, a lone boy imprisoned in a spaceship between two AI systems. The boy seeks independence and starts to explore the entire ship then moving to the whole war-torn galaxy. Both storylines are not expected to connect somehow, but in the course of completion game levels, players start to notice similar slight details.

Point and click games are not for me, I don't have the brain and the patience to figure out obtuse puzzles and solutions. But I like story driven games and point and click games thrives on that. I used to play them normally, but nowadays I cheat, I use guides if I get stuck for more than 5 minutes. Tim Schafer games are notorious for its obtuseness, where you have to somehow figure out to use a banana on a jet plane to get it to sign so you could open the door (I've made up this part, but you get the point). But at the same time, his games are famous for having superb humor, interesting worlds and most especially, the heart. Broke Age has all of it in spades! The story is very intriguing (though the ending and some plot twists are a bit strange and feel undeveloped), the world is unique and graphic style is beautiful. Oh, and the characters! The characters you encounter are great. There are so many good ones! Curtis (Will Wheaton), Dutch Knife, Harm'ny Lightbeard (Jack Black), Yarn palls, Talking tree, I could go on and on. But what takes it away from me (maybe point and click fans loved that part, but after reading about some puzzles, mostly found the harder ones badly designed too) is its puzzles. Some of them are time-based and some required very strange solutions. Without a walkthrough I would've never finished this game, but luckily I was able to experience this game and I am so glad that I did.

Nice adventure with beautifull Drawing, The end dissapointed me, but the  walkthrough was nice.
Beautiful, but childish
