Broken Age hits PS4, PS Vita on April 28

Cross-buy and cross-save supported.

Broken Age

Broken Age will launch for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on April 28 in North America and April 29 in Europe, Double Fine Productions announced.

The adventure game, made by the same team that created Grim Fandango in the 1990s, will feature both Acts 1 and 2 of the story and support cross-buy (buy one version, get the other free) and cross-save (share saves across versions).

Here’s a rundown of the story, via the PlayStation Blog:

Broken Age tells the story of Vella and Shay, a girl and boy from completely different worlds who seem to be leading strangely parallel lives…

…Vella has been chosen by her village to have the honor of being sacrificed to the terrible monster Mog Chothra, but having no interest in being devoured by a horrible beast, must go against ages old tradition and make her escape. Meanwhile somewhere in space, Shay is living a solitary life under the care of a very motherly computer, and whilst his every need is taken care of in every way imaginable, he wishes for nothing more than to break free from the monotonous safety of his daily life, and have some real adventures.

Broken Age: Act 2 will hit PC day-and-date with the PlayStation release.
