Das lange erwartete Sword & Sworcery von den Superbrothers ist endlich für's iPad erschienen, ich hab's mir gekauft und grade angezockt. Das Game ist erstmal ein relativ klassischen Point'n'KlickTap-Adventure, erinnert von der grundsätzlichen Spielmechanik ein wenig an ein 2D-Myst, nur mit extrem schicker und düsterer Pixelgrafik und vielen Soundspielereien, Musik und einigen Überraschungen. S:S&S dürfte mit einigem Abstand das bislang beste Game für's iPad sein.

Hier die Website zum Game, hier der Link zu iTunes.

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 is an unusual collaborative project made in the experimental independent videogame hotspot of Toronto, Canada. It has been built around the songs & sounds of composer/rockstar Jim Guthrie, whose discography includes solo efforts Morning, Noon, Night, Now More Than Ever, as well as the Juno award-winning Alone At The Microphone by Royal City. S:S&S EP features the internationally recognized art & design style of Superbrothers, whose illustrations & short films have appeared in a variety of exhibitions & publications. S:S&S EP is entirely made possible by the award-winning independent videogame studio Capy, creators of the critically acclaimed Critter Crunch & Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes, with Capy creative director Kris Piotrowski overseeing the project's strange evolution.
