Nothing made sense, there was no story closure, no character progression, the game mechanics had no logic, no depth, there was virtually no interactivity so I might as well have watched a let's-play... Pretty graphics and soundtrack, but that's it.

With some games, even if the gameplay isn't stellar, a player can derive something from the feeling of being in control of the character that they can't get from watching a let's-play (The Stanley Parable is an excellent example of this), but that's not the case here. There's nothing.

The controls are point-and-click. You guide the character around on a leash and solve "puzzles," and by “puzzle” I mean "click arbitrary things on the screen in an arbitrary order." What sort of things? Click all the ducks, or click all the trees, or click all the bushes – in a specific, arbitrary order. It's just trial and error, with no rhyme or reason. If you think perhaps I'm exaggerating, I don't blame you, but I'm not. This game really is that mediocre.

Occasionally you'll have to fight something. Combat in this game is an extremely simple rhythm game. It's tricky-enough to be a little frustrating, and bare-bones-enough to be boring.

The world that you explore is simultaneously small and tedious. There are maybe three dozen locations. They're all pretty, and backed by a great soundtrack, but devoid of things to do. Around half of the locations are completely purposeless, and serve to do nothing more than take up your time as your character (slowly) walks through them on her way to the place you're trying to get to.

To be perfectly honest, I'm fine with games having decorative content that's just there to immerse you and give you a place to chill out. Trouble is, these locations actually GET IN THE WAY of gameplay. I don't want to spoil too much, but there's a sizable chunk of the game that you spend walking back and forth between two locations at opposite ends of the map, and I am completely baffled by that design decision.

Now we have to talk about the story and dialogue, and... Oh boy...

The game opens with a man who appears to be a shrink sitting in a plush chair. He breaks the fourth wall and speaks directly to the player as his patient. He refers to the game by name, describing it as a “therapy.” The game is broken up into four “therapy sessions.” If all of this sounds horribly pretentious, that's because it is. The therapist (referred to as “The Archetype”) even subtly hints that if you aren't enjoying the game, it's because you aren't approaching it with the right mindset.

The Archetype persists throughout the game, constantly giving you “hints” (more like outright telling you what to do next) and breaking the fourth wall. There is almost no opportunity afforded to the player to suspend disbelief.

Most of the game takes place in a fairly classic fantasy setting, with swords, shields, monsters, ghosts and spellbooks. But the characters, inexplicably, talk like modern-day stoners. That's the most accurate description I can give. Even the dog. No, really, even the dog. It's not funny or clever at all. At first it's quirky, but the novelty wears off as you meet more characters, and discover that every single one talks in the same way. It's like reading a fanfiction that's trying for self-depricating humor and falling short. None of the characters speak seriously, and it makes it that much harder to get immersed in the game.

Anyway, that was my experience playing Sword and Sworcery. I finished the game, and I kind of regret it.

40%-50% of the gameplay is slowly backtracking through the same areas over and over again, it's really very tedious and the game's biggest fault. The retro look is fun, the music is great, the puzzles are ok but the realization that you now have to spend 10 minutes backtracking to point A and back is just no fun. There is also the feeling the game is being cryptic for some hipster indie appeal rather game content reasons and the constant "tweet this!" prompts just add to this feeling, like the devs are reaching for cult status. It's not a bad game but I can't say I recommend it.

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is a kind of game that you may hate before you love it.

You play as a girl (that looks like a random pile of pixels) that explores a tiny mysterious world, fights deadly monsters and tries to make sense of it all.

It is a point and click adventure with several fighting sequences. Sometimes it gets very confusing. In-game hints are often not helpful. You end up wondering around without knowing what to do. The fact that some in-game events only happen during certain real life moon phases (the game checks the date every time you play) is not making things easier.

Use the guide or watch walkthrough videos if you get stuck. Judging by achievement stats less than 10% actually manage to finish the game even though it is just a couple of hours long. Things start making much more sense on the second playthrough if you ever get to that point.

This game is beautiful. It is funny. It is confusing. It is scary. It is sad. It is weird. Very very weird.
A review won’t do it justice. You have to experience it. And music... music is amazing.

Rating: A piece of indie gaming art / 10.

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery is easily one of the most unusual, nonsensical, gorgeous games I've ever played. As I write this, I'm still not entirely sure how to describe what exactly it was I experienced.

The general gameplay consists of you searching beautiful low poly. highly detailed environments for strange creatures known as 'sylvan sprites' by clicking multiple points in the environment. The game gives very little direction as to what parts of the environment you should be clicking and the direction that the game does decide to give you is delivered via nonsensical, highly confusing messages through in game twitter like updates from the few characters.
While I presume these messages were meant to contain hints, half the time I couldn't decipher what was random nonsense and what was the game's way of trying to point me in a particular direction. This resulted in me randomly clicking my way through most of the puzzles, which worked out fine except on a handful of occasions.

While the gameplay leaves a lot to be desired, it's everything else that makes this game worth experiencing. The writing, while cryptic and often times silly, sets a very laid back tone as you quest to save this musically infused world.
The charming art design combined with the beautifully composed music gives this game a sense of style like no other and I often found myself in awe of the relationship between the two.

The story isn't partiuclarly deep or complex but the quirky and episodic nature in which it unfolds makes this a game worth seeing through to the end.
