Broken Age

I was reading an article completely unrelated to art and it had an image from the game ‘Broken Age.’ I quickly had to research the game, investigate, gather intel and share it with everybody.

This game was a kickstarter campaign that was extremely successful. The game is developed by Double Fine Studios in San Francisco. I’ve included some beautiful art and a trailer video. :D

Some get tired of it, like Markus Persson, and make the grand decision to break away from the gaming industry rat race to start something great that they can call their own. More on Wired.com
