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.
