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.

Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery is one of the most imaginative and beautiful games I’ve played in a while (that’s just my personal preference). The game is simplistic to play but, I was hooked till the very end. The game is like one of those “Where the f*** do I go” kind of games but, I don’t mean that in a bad way as you may think for the quotation sentience. The pixel visuals are really nice. At first, I wasn’t too keen on the game but, as I played more, I started to really love the look of it. The gameplay consists of you clicking on the environment to which the character will follow. You don’t really have full control of the characters but, I think it make you feel and take in the world and environment more. It’s a funny game but, at the same time, I felt, some sort of serious connection to the character as I got further into the game. I felt… something… at the game ended, which I can’t really explain nor did I expect. Every now and then you trigger random battles, which personally, I really like. At first I didn’t know what to do but you get the hang of it pretty quick.

The game tells you nothing. I like games like that. It doesn’t take your hand and flat out tell you what you need to do next. Other characters in the game give you clue as to what to do next and you take it from there.

Overall I love this game. It’s one of those games that makes me wish I could make my own game. I know a few people wouldn’t but, I would say it’s worth the money and if I didn’t have the game (as in if I had played it at a friend house) I would buy it for myself. Even if I finished it. I’m weird like that. When I play a game I like, I want to own it. Period. Everything from the music, to the visuals, God... i just love it.

9.5/10

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.

It's painfully short, 2deep4u arthouse trash, but I love it. Killer soundtrack, nice atmosphere. Leaves you wanting more. Originaly a phone game, and it shows with the wonky interface. Whoever thought of the social media integration is clearly mentally challenged, but it's a mercifully optional feature.

A fantasticly short game with the the added feature of accomplishing chapters during the actual phases of the moon! OR Find the Moon Grotto to change the moon phases. OR Change the time and date in your PC to speed up the moon phases in the game. But that idea will only work with the repercussion of a "cheater achievement" that will post! XD

Also, Dogfella is very cool and brings a smile to your face when he barks at you to follow him. He helps you gather the pieces of The Trigon!!!

I Love this game and is going in my all time favs!

pretentious hipster garbage/10

honestly though, great sound design, pretty pixel art, but you end up walking up and down the same few screens. combat is eh, controles are weird due to being ported from iPad. pick up for cheap if you really have to but don't expect great things. there's little enough content to make you bored after 2 hours of playing.

Highly stylized games are tough to execute with success, but this one nails it. The cool witty writing, phenomenal art and great soundtrack come together brilliantly. I recommend this game! It is a lite "King's Quest" for the modern era.

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.

This game. There's just something about it. It makes you want to laugh, smile and cry all at the same time.
I suppose it shows life in a shortened version and what everyone wants to try and be. We all want to be the hero, but as some people know, there can be no hero without sacrafice and suffering.

The soundtrack to this game compliments the graphics perfectly setting a brilliant atmosphere of being tense and relaxed at the same time.

As a side note this isn't a game, it's a journey and you will never forget this journey.

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....

An amazing and ethereal experience leaving you wanting more and more each session of play time, yet you always seem to fall under a dusty empty spell which seems to fill you to the brim once you finish a chapter.

I love this game so much that I'm even willing enough to bend the rules in order to recieve the achievement that rewards you for cheating the in-game moon phase based clock.

All in all, please take on The Scythian's woeful errand while listening to the amazing in-game soundtrack composed by Jim Gutherie. You won't be dissapointed.

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery, while linear, proves to be over-the-top and out-of-the-box. While fitting into the pixelated art style that is becoming more popular by the minute, this game may be the only one to pull it off in such a gorgeous and vivid way. Bright colors, unique environments, and the cute little creatures of the forest are all implemented perfectly and without excess noise to drown everything out. The graphical content of this game never ceases to disappoint. From a tiny village, to a waterfall going through the middle of the woods, and even a concert venue with a bear, Capybara makes everything work and keep you wanting more.

Sword & Sworcery tells the tale from a Scythian woman’s point of view as she steals a tome and proceeds to fight a towering specter, numerous small triangles that form a larger triangle, and even that mysterious bear inside a tree that is much bigger on the inside. Using the tome to read your, and everyone else’s, thoughts from second person, this title provides a fun and humorous way to keep you coming back.

While this game is short, it is split into sections. To prolong this game, I recommend playing each session on a different day. As short as it may be, Sword & Sworcery is a fantastic game with a wonderful soundtrack and is for anyone who likes adventure, pixel-art, art in general, or just having a good time.

Magnificent visual design, sweet music and interesting narrative structure, but sadly plagued by a mumbo jumbo story, the weirdest semi humorous tone and 'throw stuff at the wall to see what sticks' puzzle design. I played about 1 and a half of the 6 chapters before my patience reached its limit and then I fast forwarded through the rest on youTube.

Sword & Sworcery is a short adventure game that never really engages. It introduces minimalistic adventure game mechanics to touchscreen adventures (which is irrelevant for mouse/keyboard players), yet drops immersive narrative in favor of ironcally juxtaposing the formal with the informal.

This willfull break from immersion is seen on several other fronts as well and does the game no good, as it already has little story progression or lore to go by. After finishing the game, I still don't know why I made the protagonist do all those things, and found no memorable companions along the way.

The artwork and music however are wonderful. I have enjoyed the soundtrack by itself and recommend giving that a listen.

A strange combination of beautiful and quirky. Sword and Sworcery enthralls you in a meditative ambience and aesthetic, only to pull you gently out of it with distinctly silly dialogue and tense moments. I feel as if I have something to fight for and I choose what and who I fight for it. Then there's the merry band of characters that charm you right from the get go. Logafellow is one of my favourite male characters in video game history.

It rewards curiosity, kindness and patience. If you're in a tense mood and need something fast paced, it's probably not the best time for Swords and Sworcery. But if you want to enter into a thoughtful trance gameplay experience, Swords and Sworcery is a unique experience.

Ill judged humor and a useless Twitter function bars an otherwise loving and beautiful adventure game tribute to everything from Atari to C64 gaming, Zelda to Shadow of the Colossus and even Twin Peaks, from being the modern masterpiece that it ought to be. Features a somber soundtrack by Jim Guthrie that matches the dream like visual perfectly. Recommended, but you might want to get it for a tablet device, as it was originally developed with those in mind.

This game... it's awesome.
I loved the art style, the plot, the characters, the ideas with puzzles, megatome etc.
One thing which started annyoing me a little bit was too much walking (at the end of the game) - I mean the part with the lost trigons.
Worst thing was like dying 3rd time in a battle with a trigon. :D

But overall experience was beautiful, I highly recommend this game if you like games like Myst and also artistic ones: Ritual, Bernband.

I love this game. It brings a unique game play of point and click adventure. In a sense it is like Adventure TIme mixed with Zelda. But what really sets this game as a gem to me is the incoropation of the music into the game that sets the tone and mood.
