IN PHOTO: Sony Computer Entertainment’s President and Group CEO Andrew House is reflected in the display screen of a PlayStation Vita handheld game console as he speaks during an interview with Reuters in Makuhari, east of Tokyo September 18, 2014.The second act of Kickstarter-backed adventure game Broken Age is nearing release, and developer Double Fine is marking the occasion by bringing the game to PS4 and PS Vita.

Sony Corp’s game division head said he hopes the unit can raise its profit outlook for a second time this financial year as sales of the latest PlayStation console and subscription services for games and other content far exceed expectations. The US PlayStation Blog reveals the full release of Broken Age will arrive in North America on the PlayStation Store on the same day that Act 2 launches on PC, Mac and Linux – April 28.

We recently got a first look at the second part of the Kickstarter-funded game, and we learned that the big finale was coming “sometime soon.” Well, we now have a hard date. With titles like “Escape from Monkey Island” and “Grim Fandango” under his resume, it’s not hard to see why he’s gained a following, which led to a successful Kickstarter campaign for his new game, “Broken Age.” The game, developed by Double Fine, gained praise from many despite a cliffhanger ending, and now the story will finally be concluding next month when “Broken Age Act 2” gets released. People who already purchased Act 1 on PCs will get the second act as a free download, and once it’s released, new buyers will only be able to buy the full game. It’s also worth noting that the game will no longer be considered episodic on PC once the final act releases, as both releases will be merged and sold together as one product. For those unfamiliar with Tim Schafer or his work, he was one of the developers behind the applauded Grim Fandango, which saw a remastered release on PlayStation platforms earlier this year.

Following two teenagers, Shay (Elijah Wood) and Vella (Masasa Moyo), Broken Age tells the beautifully written story of these two as they live seemingly disconnected, yet parallel lives, each trying to break away from the traditions they find so trapping. If you want a slightly different look at Broken Age: Act 2, you can check out the 12 minutes of gameplay we posted yesterday with new Tim Schafer commentary above.

Act 1 released to highly positive reviews, Polygon calling it “delightful, beautiful,” and “utterly charming,” and Destructoid proclaiming, “I haven’t felt this surge of nostalgia and excitement about a game in a long time.” Like most of Tim Schafer’s games, with the exception of “Psychonauts,” “Broken Age” is a point and click adventure game, reminiscent of older PC games in the 1990s. The PlayStation Blog has confirmed that “Broken Age” will support cross-play and save transferring, so owners of both platforms can switch between the two at will.
