Despite the fact Double Fine with Tim Schafer at the helm took to the the popular funding website “kickstarter”, to fund their current project “Broken Age” (a new point and click adventure due to come out in 2014), the studio has now ran out of money to continue said game. Set at an original goal of $400,000, Tim Schafer announced in a backers only update, that the game now required additional funding to continue as he had now gotten excited with the amount he received through kickstarter and wanted to make the game a much grander experience. Double Fine managed to exceed the goal of $400,000, by receiving over $3.45 million dollars from well over 80,000 backers.
“Another kickstarter is out of the question”
Tim Schafer was quoted saying ,“Even though we received much more money from our kickstarter than we, or anybody anticipated, that didn’t stop me from getting excited and designing a game so big that it would need even more money”. Broken Age has now took to steams “early access” and is looking to begin around January of next year, after Schafer said, “another kickstarter is out of the question”.
