Episode 9: "Broken Age"

Recommended Posts

Hello again, backers!

We're back with a full new documentary episode from 2 Player Productions! We aren't switching to weekly Kickstarter updates, but as we mentioned in the previous update, we are planning to update more frequently. We'll be sending out the emailed update containing this episode to backers a little later today.

But enough of that! Enjoy Episode 9:

Hmm, it looks like our forums don't allow parentheses in URLs or something. Weird.

Making games sure seems stressful. I can relate.

I like "Small Offerings" better than "Broken Age", but as you said, I will get used to it with time.

Not sure if Tim was joking, but it really is the least offensive title of the bunch..!

The more of these documentaries I watch the more excited I get about the game and the more people I tell about it.

Every time I watch one of these I get that warm fuzzy feeling inside, it's such a privilege to in some way be a part of all this magic happening. I think I'll just watch this one more time before going to bed... or maby twice?

Great episode. One of my favs so far.

Completely agreed.

Also, I learned a lot in this episode.

For instance, it wasn't until this epsode that I discovered that Bagel was such a potty mouth. :P

Great Episode, plus I got a split second of having my back turned to the camera near the end.

Nice episode. It scares me that over 12 months since this started Tim hasn't even finished writing the game. It's still a small team and they seem so far off from completion. I don't know how this can come out in 2013 but I got my fingers crossed.

Best episode so far, not only because of the content showed but also the best cut, edited and mastered episode so far! Chapeau 2pp!
