Yesterday, Double Fine announced that its Kickstarter-funded adventure game Broken Age would be available for backers to play starting today. The rest of us will have to wait until later this month to purchase the game.

The first half of Tim Schafer's colorful new adventure game will release on January 28 for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Preorders are already open on Steam.

“It's been sixteen years since I've made an adventure game, almost twenty years since I've made a point-and-click, and just shy of two years since I dared the internet to force me to make one,” said Double Fine president and Broken Age writer/designer Tim Schafer. “Coming back to the genre has been like finding an old jacket in a box in your garage that you haven't worn in twenty years, but once you shake the dust off and put it on you realize it's an amazing jacket and it still fits, and once you patch the holes in the pockets it could easily take a spot in your main jacket rotation.”

“Oh, and also, in one of the pockets was three and a half million dollars,” Schafer added.
