Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery is a pixelated audio-visual journey into experimental interactivity. Created by the Superbrothers team. Soundtrack and sound design by Jim Guthrie. More information as follows:
“S:S&S EP is a 21st century interpretation of the archetypical old school videogame adventure, designed exclusively for Apple’s touchtronic machinery.
It’s a mix of laid-back exploration, careful investigation & mysterious musical problem-solving occasionally punctuated by hard-hitting combat encounters. S:S&S EP is an unusual genre-bending effort with an emphasis on sound, music & audiovisual style that has been positioned as ‘a brave experiment in Input Output Cinema’.
S:S&S EP has been described as “… an unlikely mix of Zelda and art house cinema. The game is equal parts Robert E. Howard, Shigeru Miyamoto, Tim Schafer, with some David Lynch thrown in for good measure — but there is more to S&S than these inspirations.”
