This game is scenic, atmospheric, and the pixel artwork is impressive. It incorporates music really well - and is lively when progress is made. It even has humorous and witty dialogue that breaks the 4th wall at times. It is easy to see how it could influence other creators. On the negative side, it was unneccessarily cryptic, and I would be suprised if most people beat it without a walkthrough or guide. While playing, I perceived the creators to be self-indulgent and protentious, and cursed them for being so obtuse about how to actually beat the game. I appreciated the ending but it's hard to recommend.

Incredibly pretentious. Insulting gameplay - a bit of Simon Says and simple rhythm combat mixed with random poking around bushes and/or forest animals. Neat music, style and atmosphere completely wasted by easy and boring puzzles and linear (and repetitive) levels. I've bought the hype thinking it was going to be an actual p'n'c adventure, but I should've known better.

Pros:
1. Sweet art style.
2. Great soundtrack.

Cons:
1. Was very boring to me. (First game in awhile where I was falling asleep playing it!)
2. Dialogue/Writing wasn't very good. It felt like it was a jumbled mess.
3. The small "quests" (for lack of a better word) were abitrary and didn't make much sense.

I was going to try and finish this game but I have other better games to play. Great art and music but quite boring.

I finished this game last week and it has continued to haunt me since. It's beautiful, quirky, funny, sad, baffling and dreamlike, and I would totally recommend it to anyone. It's called an EP for a reason--I finished in under 5 hours--but it was a very satisfying few hours.

Beautiful pixel art, stunning music, and a story that is best described as "baby's first acid trip". It's kind of sad how utterly the game play and story falls short of the art and music. Game play seems like it was tacked on or left so simplistic that it doesn't even register as a challenge. The point and click aspects are lack luster. The characters are all one note and flat as a pancake. The story makes no sense which is good if you prescribe to the hipster theory of “making no sense” is the paragon of art.

The music is worth buying it on sale, but I would probably just try and find the sound track al la carta.

One of my many "Steam rules" is not to buy a mobile game, but this game ... man, this game masterfully blends music, art, storytelling and gameplay in deeply poetic ways that you just don't see very often. It may only take a handful of hours to play through the game's four chapters, but the impact it leaves will stay with you for a long time.

Actually I hate pixel art - but this game is worth to play: it's strange, beautifull, and full of excitement....

Ненавиджу піксель-арт - але ця гра заслуговує на увагу: вона чудова, трошки дивна, та все-ж таки захоплююча....

So much potential for such a small game, most likely one of the best games I've ever played.
Amazing soundtrack and a thrilling atmosphere. This is what a Masterpiece looks like.

5/10 - One word: Confusion. The atmosphere and music of the game is nice and relaxing, but the clues (or lack thereof) it gives you leaves you frequently stuck and frustrated. It IS possible to get through the game without a guide (I did it in under 5 hours), but it takes patience and a bit of tenacity.

I was on the fence whether to recommend this game or not, because despite what I said above, I still enjoyed the game. However, I don't think that I would put my reputation behind it.

Great soundtrack, epic storyline, this game kept me pulled in until the end, and then some.
Highly recommended if you enjoy nice, peaceful games that have their fair share of action, adventure, and exploring.

This game isn't long or complex, but it's absolutely beautiful. It's mostly about exploring, figuring out what you need to do, and occasional combat with a simple two-button system that's all about learning the patterns of your enemies. The world is intriguing, the music is great, and there's something very soothing about the whole experience.

I'm just hoping there's a sequel at some point so I can throw more money at these guys.

I'm really intrigued by what I just played. Sword & Sworcery is a strange mix of funny self-awareness as a game and art project; pretty pixel landscapes and nice soundtrack; all mixed in a plot that goes from the super-serious to the super-casual in waves. The game is never out-right comedic, but you can tell from screen to screen where you're supposed to relax and where you are supposed to be tense. What fascinates me is how even with its pixelated characters the game manages to make you feel stressed, afraid, rejoiced or frustrated as you go.

One of the game elements that is constant throughout the story is the lack of a expectations on what is possible and what not within the environment. I found myself unable to judge if I had any agency in this or that environment or situation, which in this game, is a good thing. You feel great when you realize that you CAN interact with this or that element, and once the creepy monster starts to chase you, this lack of understanding about where are the game-boundries makes you feel trapped and powerless as you desperately click everything on screen while moving away as you trying to figure out what to do next.

Granted, this lack of context did made me go for an online guide once I couldn't figure out how to wake up one or two of the Sprites. But overall, if you have enough curiosity and patience, you will get the hang of this strange little world without external help.

Another thing that I found really original about this game is how the difficulty raises as the story progesses. We're used to getting more health and power in other titles, allowing you to combat fiercer and bigger enemies as you go. But in Sword & Sworcery you get LESS health as the main character's well-being begins taking a toll on the quest, which makes formerly easy challenges suddenly stressful and difficult. This increase in vulnerability goes counter to the power-trip most other games makes you go through, and that alone, I found it to be really cool (as well as REALLY nerve-wrecking as I faced old enemies).

That being said, this is not a fighting game per se. Sure, the fights are the parts that require most eye-hand coordination and skill, but the puzzle solving and exploration take a similar toll in your brain. I found it very balanced how much emphasis it was put onto each part of the gameplay.

Oh, another thing I liked: At the end of each "chapter" the narrator takes you back to the main screen, telling you to take a break before continuing. I found this to be cool in terms of story-telling, and oddly considerate for you as a player. It made me wish more games would suggest that kind of pauses for their players.

So overall, this is a very strange, charming, deep, stressfull and rewarding game all at once. It's a bit short compared to other titles, but by the end, you'll be glad by every minute of it.

A very simple game in terms of mechanics, but very satisfying for its sounds and noises. I would more rate this as a playable EP - liked listening to Jim Guthrie.
The hardest sections of the game is where you need to react in step with the ambient music - it's a blast if you knock it all over without being hit (although really one should go play rock band if rhythm is your thing). Other than that, there's the scavenger hunt.
So, a recommndation for a number of relaxed evenings. The honest player won't finish the game in one sitting.

Now this game was for me an unique experience. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP offers you rather simple, but surprisingly moving story, with quite funny running commentary. Dry humour and linguistic play of words won't necessarily endear the tale to everyone, although I enjoyed the innovative narration.

(If you don't take the fragments of commentary aspiring to appear pseudo-therapeutical too seriously, of course).

As in any point & click game, you have to solve puzzles (varing in difficulty and nature) to move forward - and, well, it took some time for me to get used to SS&S EP mindset.

Music is beatiful - even if you're not interested in game, soundtrack is worth listening to. If you like pixel art, you will also love graphics. The world is detailed and alive, and holds much potential in my opinion; given how little we get to know about its mythology and geography, I feel kind of disappointed that SS&S EP offers only a small figment of its world. I would certainly like to see more.

I recommend Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery EP to anyone curious enough to try rather meditative atmosphere. Do give this game a chance, you might love it :)

The triangles!! Anything but the triangles!

Sword n' Sworcery is a rather unusually titled game. But it's also a rather unusual game, too. Not that I know anything about Superbrothers after having finished it, but I can safely say that calling the game an EP is actually pretty accurate... Gameplay is overall limited, and you're here for the 'magic', the music, and the atmosphere. Keep an open mind here, S&S doesn't play quite like any other game. You'll only be going through the game once, but if you finish it, it's a worthy experience as games go. Really just the perfect game for people who want a stripped down adventure game which focuses less on gameplay and more on the feel of the experience.

Also- watch out for triangles firing lasers. Deadly things.
