      Hello Tim
      the documentation suggests that you actually read the comments here, so here is my 2c for what I saw: You guys (or to be specific: mainly you) seem not to be to good in taking in different opinions / critique. Every comment that was not sucking up to you or the game seems not to be appreciated ("haters", ...) while every positive comment is overamplified ("thats the people we are doing this for"). In the context of the documentary it made me a bit sad, I thought you were better sports, or at least able to take something constructive out of viewpoints different than your own. Doesn't really seem to be the case - and that's another sobering lesson learned about double fine productions. But without malice, I'm grateful that you give that insight through the great documentary. The documentary is the thing I'm really glad I backed.

      ... they have their jobs to do. How does that equal them stepping all over you or me? So the episodes come a bit late. Oh noes. That's so horrible.

      @Ahmed - Double Fine answered a similar question in the comments section for the newest update: the game needs to be finished, and the documentary over before they can put it to disc. It's going to be a while before they can start thinking about the boxed version of the game and documentary.

      Creator Tyler on April 7

      Now that they have gotten their money and released the first part I wonder if we'll ever hear anything from them again. Over 2 months and nothing related to the production of part 2 or a documentary update. I guess spacebase, massive chalice, etc, all took precedence.

      I will say the sidequest with Khris was great. She's such a vibrant person.

      This is a kickstarter from some of the same guys who worked on those games and it really could use some help. Take a look if you're interested in adventure-style games!

      Nice colors. Really.
      Just very, very, very, very dissapointed now. You screwed the backers over IMO. In order to chum up with the dumb masses. Please, shove your ipads and iphones into something dark and smelly. Do you think 8 year old kids gave you the 3 million for this interactive storybook? :(
      If this is what Act 2 is going to be like as well, then I kind of lost my hope for kickstarter...i guess this will be the first and last one.
      I've been promised Jazz. That's what I've paid for. That's what I was looking forward to. But what I got, Hannah Montana. hmpf.
      (And yeah, I'm pretty sure that some albums by Miley Cyrus received GREAT reviews! And TONS of people listen to her complex music! Those hits NEVER get old! Just keep looking up! Do NOT look down! All is sugar and roses!!)

      Creator Herbert (nothisisnotashopstoriesthx) on February 12

      Going back to the posting of Chris Kruschke, I second that. Broken Age is very beautiful, the artwork, music, voice and all, but it has the feeling of an animated childrens books. A big part of the old PNC adventures was that there were always (a few) puzzles that were really hard, and the solution was creative and surprising ("Oh man, it makes Sense! Why did I not see that before!"). The big motivation and enjoyment of those adventures was to have *worked* for something and to have *earned* the success. There was an emotional high, and I think that was what made most of us so nostalgic about PNCs, especially the classics from Tim Schaefer.

      But this high can only come from struggle. And in Broken Age there is no struggle, thus no deep enjoyment of *yourself*. It's nice and all, but because it caters to customers age 10 and up and the attention span of the 21st century it became "casual" - and thus also not rewarding. It's not boring, because of the nice storyline, but as a real rewarding game it pretty much fails so far.

      There are probably other things to add, but that was what bugged me most. Played it for a few hours, solved everything pretty instantly and then forgot about it. That is very different to how I remember e.g. Monkey Island. Broken Age is ... just too commercial, it want's to please too much, do right by everyone from 8 to 80, it doesn't dare to challenge the players, dare to frustrate them too much. But like Arnie says: No pain - no gain.

      Double Fine: When People give you so much money, they want to be challanged, they want a game that would probably not be successful in the market right now. You turned this wish into a gigantic love-child project that would kind of make or break your studio - and so you *did* cater to the commercial market. You had to, at that point. You probably could have done that with a publisher also. I guess this is why I feel a little disappointed. You did not dare to dream, to shake things up mean and dirty. You did not give us the unique ironic and always surprising fun of the Tim Schaefer we loved, you gave us simple, super polished and commercial. Broken Age makes me smile every now and then, but it does not make me laugh, cry and *think* like the old ones did.

      @Stephen I'm pretty sure the only thing Humble Bundle can do with your Steam account is add games to it.See this FAQ:

      Q:Does Humble Bundle have access to my Steam account?
      A:Protecting your privacy is extremely important to us. Humble does not have the access to view any of the information within your Steam account. The only access that Humble has to your Steam account is the ability to add awesome new games to your library in a much more convenient way than was implemented before.

      @Adam Aubry did you pledge $100 or more? Because only $100+ pledges receive special thanks in the game’s credits.

      Hey, I've been having a problem with Humble Bundle, it turns out they don't actually do steam keys anymore, they lock your account to steam and prevent you from getting your games unless you do it in a way that lets them screw with your account if they feel like it. It sucks.

      Really enjoyed the game. I'm not in it for the old school obscure puzzles so I didn't mind the gameplay. The style alone was worth it.

      Dear Tim and Double Fine,

      Thank you so, so much for all your stupid amounts of hard work. After playing the game for a few hours, it really shows how much love and polish has gone into every aspect of this piece of art.
      When I booted it up for the first time, I felt like I was finally seeing my best friend succeed after years of struggling, so I'm really happy for the company and I know you'll all continue to grow and make amazing work.

      To people struggling to get their copy of the game, you need to check your e-mail history for a message from with your unique Humble URL. They were sent out on 14th Jan. If you can't find that e-mail then I guess you'll have to contact them to get it re-sent.
