Elijah Wood joins Broken Age

Spike's VGX event revealed big news from Double Fine's new Kickstarted adventure game Broken Age. Shay, one of the lead characters, will be voiced by Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood.

This was shown in a new trailer for the game:

Wood joins an increasingly impressive voice cast that already includes Jack Black, Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation), Jennifer Hale (Female Shepard from Mass Effect), and Pendleton Ward (creator of Adventure Time and voice of Lumpy Space Princess). Now that's just crazy.

The first part of Broken Age will be released sometime in January.
