Control Command Escape Reviews Broken Age, Act One
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Control Command Escape recently posted a new review of Double Fine's Kickstarter funded Broken Age Act One. The game follows the parallel lives of a boy and girl who will face unique challenges and encounter adventure along the way.

The very first screen presents an interesting conceit: there are two main characters, Shay and Vella, and you can play them in parallel. There's no lead-in narrative to either storyline, you simply pick one of them and discover their world for yourself. You can switch between the two at any moment, although the game only hints at this possibility via an icon that's tucked away, and it's not clear from the outset how the two storylines are related.

Indeed, the two storylines barely intertwine for the most part (although there's absolutely a moment when you realise just how brilliantly they do, and thankfully the game lets you figure that out on your own), with Vella's story concerning her attempt to put an end to a ritual sacrifice, and Shay's attempt to break free of his "mother"'s over-protective nature.

Head over to the page below for the full review.
