Dark Horse Explores Worlds of Broken Age


Dark Horse Books and Double Fine Productions is getting together for something good. That good is a look into the worlds of Broken Age in The Art of Broken Age. With Broken Age, adventure-gaming auteur Tim Schafer returned for the first time in sixteen years to the genre that he helped create, and after a historic, record-breaking crowdfunding campaign, the full adventure is here in all its beautiful, hand-painted glory.

The Art of Broken Age features hundreds of pieces of art, along with commentary from the notable voices of director Tim Schafer, lead artist Nathan “Bagel” Stapley, concept artists Peter Chan and Scott Campbell, art director Lee Petty, and more. Both standard and limited editions of the book will be available for purchase and Kickstarter backers who pledged early will receive a special backer edition with an exclusive signed tip-in plate from the artists.

The Art of Broken Age is in stores May 25, 2016. Full press release below.
