Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is an adventure game created by Superbrothers and Capybara Games, with music by Jim Guthrie.
"With over 1.5 million copies sold, it’s pretty obvious that #Sworcery has been a resounding success. And we’d like to share a few details of that success with you. There’s not that many titles out there that began on iOS and made their way to this many other platforms over time, so we hope that this info is helpful in some way/shape/form."

Good for The Superbrothers & Capy. It's cool to see great games find an audience.

Sword & Sworcery made a few waves when it was released as it blended Adventure gaming with a fantastic score. As Sword & Sworcery made its way to be localized for Japan, Jim Guthrie released a remix album called "The Scythian Steppes: Seven #Sworcery Songs Localized for Japan." I picked up the album on Jim's Bandcamp page and wanted to toss out a few words about it.

I recommend downloading this album if you enjoy listening to Jim Guthrie's music because these remixes take his work and bring it a unique voice. Jim Guthrie's music is already very eclectic and the first remixes seen in Little Furnace and The Ballad of the Space Babies really bring a certain modern... Read All

So I just picked up Sword and Sworcery through the recent Humble Bundle for Android. I had been hesitant to try it mostly because of how big my gaming backlog already is, even with jdodson singing its praises earlier this year. Now that homework has leveled out, and I'm spending late nights on duty in the lab, I grabbed the bundle so I could play some games on my MacBook while I waited out my shift. I was more than pleasantly surprised when I booted up the game. Here's a few things I noticed.

First, the game was subtle in how it taught you how to play. It either let you figure it out, or gave a small visual or textual hint on how the controls work. Instead of flat out... Read All
If you haven't picked up The Humble Bundle V yet, you should. So many awesome games included and this time around the bundle includes FLAC files for all the soundtracks.

That said, the port of Sword & Sworcery to the PC and Mac is superb(included in the bundle). I wasn't sure a game made for touch devices would translate well to the mouse and keyboard but it does. I am going to finish my game on my iPhone because I have played pretty far on that device, but if you have the humble bundle 5 I implore you to give Sword & Sworcery a try.

Recently I was at the Trigon battle(I snapped the pic above) and kept dying. Since when you die you... Read All

Occasionally games come along that change the way you think about what games can do. A month or so back I heard that Sword & Sworcery was a rad iOS game that took the experience beyond the typical mobile game faire to have a great story and interesting game mechanics. I picked it up hoping for great and I wasn't disappointed.

The game brings you into its unique universe from the start and I was immediately hooked. I watched the entire intro and "more information" game sections before I even started playing. It was that unique.

The game is stylistically similar to the old Out of this World game released on PC and Super Nintendo. It forgoes speech in favor of text and... Read All
