The time has come for an exciting new update about exciting times from game designer Tim Schafer on the current state of Broken Age, and some other things. But we’ll get to that a bit later. Just last month, we reported that Broken Age’s second act would be seeing its release this spring, along with German voice acting and physical, boxed copies thrown into the mix. Well, that’s still very much happening. The game itself is now in Beta, Schafer revealed, going on to add that the recording of all the voice acted dialogue has also been finished, both in English and German. The game is currently in the playtesting phase, with bugs to be ironed out and finishing touches to be made for its release sometime this spring – overall, things appear to be going well.

At the end of the video, Schafer also made a brief mention of the recent controversy surrounding Peter Molyneux and the unfulfilled Kickstarter promises of Godus – he described the violent backlash of fans and press against Molyneux as “unfortunate and unfair”, urging people to remember that game development has its ups and downs, and reminding developers of the importance of staying transparent with their fans.
