Nordic Games signed a distribution deal with Double Fine Productions for the retail edition of Broken Age for PC, Mac, and Linux. The boxed version will be released simultaneously with the digital version in Spring 2015. Aside from the retail release, new German voice-overs have been recorded for all characters.
Reinhard Pollice, business & product development director at Nordic Games, said:
“After releasing Costume Quest, Psychonauts and Stacking for retail in 2014, this marks another important step in our almost heist-free cooperation. With Broken Age, 2015 starts off great for aficionados of the adventure game genre. Our intel also suggests that Germany is a veritable stronghold when it comes to pointing and clicking, hence the new German voice-overs for Broken Age make us very happy.”
Double Fine President and CEO Tim Schafer added:
“I am very excited about the retail version of Broken Age. And also relieved, as having a widely distributed, physical copy of the game will make it more safe from solar flares and EMP bombs and stuff like that. As long as people store their disks in fire proof safes. People do that, right?”

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
