Davvero particolare, evocativo e coinvolgente.
Mi ha stupito, mi ha divertito e mi ha fatto riflettere ed è andato al di la del "gioco".
Forse sono particolarmente "predisposto" io in questo periodo della mia vita, o forse i temi trattati e la musica evocativa hanno facilitato certe riflessioni a me care (la vita... la morte.. ecc)
Musica fantastica, ovviamente particolare a chi piace il genere: a me ha coinvolto e anzi.. forse non sarebbe stato cosi se la musica fosse stata differente.
Sono quindi estremamente e piacevolmente soddisfatto del gioco. Mi sento di consigliarlo ma non aspettatevi un hack and slash o un platform. Il gioco in se è semplice, quasi banale con davvero poco contenuto "giocabile".
E' l'esperienza della storia, come è narrata e come disegnata... e l'insieme che mi ha affascinato.
Forse non è per tutti, potreste anche odiarlo o abbandonarlo dopo 10 minuti.

In Sword and Sworcery, you're a warrior, The Scythian, on a quest to get the mystic macguffin. You meet a few folks, fight a few beasts, and solve some puzzles (mostly by clicking at the proper time or in the proper order). This is all framed as some kind of "therapy session", presented by "The Archetype", a Fourth Wall-breaking, cigar-smoking quasi-narrator.

The major issue with this game is its far too pre-occupied with being quirky and self-aware. If it were a person, it'd be that guy who confuses the simple act of dressing in a suit and drinking martinis with having charisma and gravitas. He doesn't know etiquette, doesn't have any sorts of skills, has no refinement to his tastes, but covers for it by downplaying the importance of all those things. He's too cool to learn the rules but still thinks he can break them. That he's too good to know that stuff. He has no game, but think's he's a player.

That's what I got out of this game. The gameplay is extremely rudimentary and poorly designed on top of that. Skin pulled across bare-bones. Exploration consists of tromping across a simple path through several screens, very slowly. You click on things of interest to gain to be rewarded often with throw-away lines delivered in that Dudebro vernacular ("We saw a grave on the hill and wondered what was up with that". Riveting).

Puzzles consist of going where the hint tells you. This isn't hard, it's just tedious and time-consuming, due to the aforementioned plodding walking pace. You only have a linear left-or-right path to take anyway. Once you arrive, you hold down the button for five seconds to make your Magic-Mode happen. You then click in an arbitrary fashion on things on the screen. Sometimes it's sheep, sometimes it's trees, sometimes it's birds. There's no logical connection to the objects and the puzzle. There's also no real logic to the order in which you must click them. It's just trial-and-error. It's about as difficult and as fun as stuffing a bunch of random toys into a toy chest so the lid closes.

Combat consists of a rythm game that's extremely rudimentary. You can block, or hit. Wait for the cue, hit the enemy, or block his attack. Sometimes you attack his attack so it's bounced back, and they might bounce it back at you. Repeat until someone screws up.

So on top of this gameplay we get a presentation that's way too satisfied with itself. When something pretends to be much more clever or intelligent than it is, that's the textbook definition of "Pretention".

Don't get this game, it's a waste of time.

5.5 Hours - all achievements and a game that has little replay value. Less time if I used a walkthrough or youtube.

Every review here is so on the fence about this game. This game isn't a horrible mess and its easy to play (but sometimes encompasses a few frustrating puzzles) coupled with this "I'M AN INDIE GAME" mentality prompt both a curious eye as well as a turned nose. And that is the problem....if a person didn't feel some of the vibes that this game was broadcasting and left it more subtle it would have left the player feeling "oh, well that was a cool and quaint little game." Instead there is a "Tweet this" achievement mentality (marketing) and a even a scene where - You're now at a concert rocking out with Jim Guthrie..."who's Jim Guthrie?" Oh an indie rocker that definitely understands his craft and instruments and the composer of this game (which does have a pretty cool soundtrack) but did the game really have to take this route?

Part "me generation" development but "oh no, I'm an Indie" game. And thats the problem. This is why earlier reviews loved it but now every review now currently in the year 2015 is so on the fence. In 2012 perhaps it was cool, perhaps it was "edgy." Now, its a game that tells a quick little story with a few puzzles and backtracking. The whole game can be viewed in youtube and while I do not regret having played it, and I am thankful for the soundtrack, I honestly can not recommend this as a buy. Not with hard earned money unless you just have it to blow.

If it is on sale (under $4) maybe give it a go, otherwise, move along. As there are other games more worthy of an investment as the years progress.

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 seems to be a game for a certain audience.

From where I'm standing, it's got interestng visuals and decent music, but the narrative feels like a collection of tweets stuck together by gum and shoestring. Game is very pretentious and goes "oooh, so mysterious, we're not explaining anything, it's so confusing to you!" at every opportunity.

Ontop of that, the controls and UI are garbage. The controls seem to be designed for a touchscreen, and while that isn't too bad on it's own, they also use a lot of gestures that would not be comfortable with touch (and are annoying with M+KB) - you have to doubleclick to interact/walk up to, press and hold to guide the character, click and drag to move screen around and rightclick to open combat screen. WASD/arrows ARE used in the game, but only to move around the viewport.

UI does not help it at all, being full of slow, drawn out animations for everything, as well as being stylized to point of being unhelpful.

This game is not a good point&click adventure, it does not have a captivating story and it likes to talk down to you.

I can not recommend it.
