Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery Ports to PC

One of my favorite games for the iOS is Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery. It is full of music, magic, ghosts and splendidly simple pixel based graphics. It looked glorious yet small on the iPhone, impressive on the iPad and looks to be absolutely splendid on the PC and Mac. Capy, the developer, will be at PAX East next week and will have a playable version available for anyone who is attending. The PC/Mac version will be the same game as the original, except it will be adapting for mouse controls, I merely say this to make clear that there doesn't seem to be any new content in the game. It will be coming out on Steam and it will be coming on April 16th. Check out their new trailer. 

Sword & Sorcery is a great point and click adventure game because of it's style. It is a game where you must find hidden pieces of magic and figure your way through numerous puzzles. It also has a battle system that relies on timing. There are two worlds that you constantly travel back and forth between, both of which are magical and full of animals, people and music. Everything you interact with in these worlds is full of music, some of it has classical inclinations, while other parts of it have rock influences. It can also be compared with Journey for PS3, which I reviewed here, specifically in regards to music being embedded into everything and the general ambient feel of the world, except Journey is an entirely different genre. Do take a look at this gameplay-ish video to get an idea of how great this game is. I heartily recommend it.
