Sword & Sworcery for iPad Trailer Is Amazing, Mystifying


I don’t really know much about Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP except what the guys over at Touch Arcade have written about it here. I know it’s an iPad game with a title that is phonetically spelled like a slight speech impediment. I know it features a cigar smoking protagonist named the Archetype, a protagonist called The Scythian, and supporting characters named Girl, Logfella and Dogfella. I know it’s due out Thursday. And that’s about it.

What else do you need to know, though, that isn’t conveyed in the mystifying, absorbing and utterly gorgeous trailer above? Look at the style of it: simplistic, abstract pixel art brought to life by ultra-realistic, fluid-like motions. Something about it reminds me of Another World. I can’t wait.
