According to a prepared statement we received from Tim Schafer:

I've worked with Peter for twenty years now, and have loved every soundtrack he's created, but I have to say that this could possibly be my favorite. There are several points in this score that make the hair stand up on my neck. Also the hair on my back. And those weird little patches of hair on my upper arms that look like sheriff badges. Anyway, it's an amazing soundtrack.

McConnell's style ranges "from the whimsical to the epic," and the score for "Broken Age" boasts a wide variety "of colorful acoustic textures." It was created with live recordings in tangent with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in addition to small ensemble performances recorded with wind and string instruments.

The soundtrack can be purchased digitally for $8 or more here.

In "Broken Age" players share the stories of Vella Tartine and Shay Volta, "two teenagers in strangely similar situations but radically different worlds." Players "switch between their stories, helping them take control of their own lives and facing the unexpected adventures that follow."
