Donors that have backed the Broken Age Kickstarter are about to get rewarded for their generosity. Double Fine announced that backers would receive their copies of Broken Age on January 14.

Double Fine head Tim Schafer stated on Twitter (via Siliconera), "Next Tuesday is going to be exciting because that's when backers can play Broken Age, Act 1! Public release date will be announced then too."

Broken Age will initially release through Steam Early Access on PC, Mac, and Linux. Schafer also stated in a separate tweet that the game would arrive on iOS later this year as a full game.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Do Kickstarter backers get the full game or just the first half?
