Broken Age gets an 80 percent discount on the Windows Store

Broken Age, a well-regarded game from Double Fine Productions, is currently up for grabs for a heck of a discount on the Windows store. (opens in new tab) The game only launched last week on Xbox One and the Windows Store, but already you can grab the Windows 10 version for $4 — a full 80 percent off its usual $20 price tag.

From the game's description:

Broken Age is a timeless coming-of-age story of barfing trees and talking spoons. Vella Tartine and Shay Volta are two teenagers in strangely similar situations, but radically different worlds. The player can freely switch between their stories, helping them take control of their own lives, and dealing with the unexpected adventures that follow.

Broken Age has been around for a few years now, having originally launched its first part in 2014 on PC before expanding to other platforms. If you enjoy point-and-click adventures an have yet to try the game, it's definitely worth a look — particularly at this price point. And if you're on the fence, you've got some time to decide, as this discount is set to last for the next seven days.

  • The Features list in the Store sold me, even though I don't actually time to play games very often (this will join a backlog of about 30 purchased that I theoretically would probably enjoy)
  • Is it worth it? And does or support crossplay between Windows 10 devices (or better even cross-platform?) The only thing I miss in my era of rekindled love for Android (the Galaxy S7 and up are truly great devices) is crossplay between PC and (Windows) Mobile, there is something uniquely satifiying about buying an app, game or service and to be able to use that same purchase on any of your Windows 10 devices, it truly is a shame that Microsoft let Google beat them to the punch (in Apple's face). I'm Dutch and live home here in the Netherlands so Cortana isn't officially available in my region but through the Internet (Bing search and a YouTube Video) I found a way to get a fully functional version or the American Cortana (obviously not trough Google Play) app working like a charm on my Galaxy S7 (which makes me wonder why Microsoft is not just releasing the American version of Cortana globally, and tailor the service to be region specific on a later date). Cortana offers me basically the same on my Galaxy S7 as she did on my HP Elite x3 (which has a busted screen) with regards to PC/Mobile syncing and while she is not in par with Google Now (and certainly not in my native tongue which is, obviously, non existent) the fact she syncs everything I do and discus with her on my desktop or Surface Pro 3 with my Galaxy s7 makes her my Digital Assistend of choice. Microsoft is missing an opportunity here. They could significantly expand her capabilities globally. Okay maybe, because of my above avarage understanding of the English language, it might be, that I am a more uniquely fitted candidate then the average consumer to use her in a unsupported region? But any user that's willing to engage with her vocally and by text would only enhance her capabilities, so why isn't Microsoft jumping on the opportunity?! Okay, sorry, my comment got a little of, off track here. Let me get back to the core of what I would have liked to discuss with you: first I love Windows 10 (mobile), I use Android out of necessity (though it's starts to grow on me) and I really miss the UWP's unique proposition of buying software on my PC and be able to use the exact same services on my mobile device, but I love the fact that Cortana plays so nice with Android devices (Microsoft should really make her globally available and pursue partnerships with global OEMs to make her a default option on more devices) but would like for more mobile apps and services to be cross-platform compatible! And most importantly does this one do just that?!
  • Any one know if this has acheivements? I can't seem to find it on the site. I know the Xbox version does. Just curious.
  • No achievements, let's save our money.
  • No achievements, no play anywhere.
  • The game is ok but it is easy to get stuck and frustrated. The art is excellent. Get it now while it is deeply discounted. The sale is to match the current sale price on Steam, which is selling it at $3.99.
  • Yah the steam sale is the same but the base price is cheaper. At least in Canada. It seems Steam has way better prices for Canadians.
  • Not a bad game, some fantastic humour and decent puzzles. I finished it just last week on PC actually.
