$8 Buys You Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, Now Retina Enabled

If you haven’t played this on iPhone or iPad, yet, get with it. On your Mac.

Wait, what? You haven’t played Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP? What’s wrong with you? It’s only one of the best games out there on the iPhone and iPad, garnering several awards from around the web.

The hit universal iOS game is now available for the Mac, and the latest update is Retina Enabled, for all you Macbook Pro owners. I can think of worse ways to spend eight bucks, as Sword and Sworcery is truly a masterpiece of indie design, complete with a brilliant soundtrack by Jim Guthrie, who seems to be involved in the new PSN game, Soundscapes, as well as the soundtrack for Indie Game: The Movie.

Created by Capybara games, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is a hard-to describe mix of pixelly retro graphics, an engaging and mysterious storyline, tons of hidden things to find and experience, and one of the best soundtracks for a video game this side of Bastion. If you’re a fan of Zelda or games of that ilk, you’ll dig Sword & Sworcery EP, and now that it’s on the Mac, you’ve got no reason not to get it.

From the Mac App Store Description:

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is an exploratory action adventure with an emphasis on audiovisual style. Traverse a mythic little realm, use a sword to do battle & evoke sworcery to solve mystical musical mysteries. Co-operate with friends via Twitter, experience a videogame world that is affected by moon phases & help a wandering warrior monk complete her woeful errand.
