Taking the game down for a while in a week or so...

Hey guys.
To prepare for the second life of Two Brothers, we're planning on taking the game down from being purchasable for a bit.

So, if it vanishes from the store page, and you're looking for it, know that it's because we're preparing to move forward with some serious changes.

“...The soundtrack for Two Brothers is elaborate and enchanting. It’s a slow burn that’s going to take a long time for you to fully digest, but if you like game soundtracks, I’d be hard pressed to offer you a better one. Full of original content, and drawing from the most memorable games of previous generations, it will give other composers something to aim for when they score their companies next title.”

“Two Brothers is a wonderful retro-inspired game with an interesting concept and solid core gameplay underneath it all so it isn’t just another love letter to the past that offers nothing else but nostalgia.”

“Between the great story, amazing music, and fascinating world, I’d definitely recommend players to check out Two Brothers. While there are certainly some problems with the game, there’s a lot here to enjoy you’ll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.”

About This Game

Two Brothers is an Action Adventure game that features a classic Gameboy aesthetic.
Roy Guarder, inventor, scientist, and philosopher, is on an expedition to discover the origins of life. This quest has brought him to "The Cursed Lands," a stretch of land so dangerous and shrouded in mystery that it hasn't been explored in over 700 years. When Roy finds what he's looking for, he is met with a terrible fate. Roy no longer finds himself a living man. He is greeted with a world of colors he never believed could have existed! One obsession leads to another and Roy begins to walk the line of life and death - sometimes intentionally ending his own life - just so he can see this land of beauty and color again.

But something is strange: Why is Roy the only man who can cross so easily between the worlds of the living and the dead? What has given him this unique ability? How will he reconcile the existence of an afterlife he never believed could even exist?
▪ Explore a vast non-linear world and story with multiple endings, and deep side quests!
▪ Take the game world from black and white 8bit to full color 16bit!

What makes Two Brothers unique:

Two Brothers takes a long hard look at death in video games... when the player is killed in combat or triggers a deadly trap, instead of being greeted a familiar GAMEOVER screen, the player finds himself in what we call the "Afterlife Hub".
This realm of the dead is a colorful and mysterious place where the player can explore, find clues, and interact with characters who have passed on in the games story... sometimes even bringing some of them back from the dead.
When the player wants to return to gameplay, they can jump from the edge of the heavens and get back in to the action and exploration!
This mechanic is vital to the gameplay, as sometimes interacting with the dead is just as important as interacting with the living... this feature often requires the player intentionally ending their session in a game over, just to cross over to the other side.

I could barely play the 12 minutes that I got due to the fact that the game starts in this 320x240 resolution and everything is too small. And if you resize the window, the game crashes. So yeah, big "no" for me.

However, the dev IS remaking the game and releasing it for free to owners of the original. So maybe there's some promise there.

This game is a horrible, buggy mess. Don't ever try to close a menu with escape, because you will instantly exit the game.

Dialogue options apear to be limited to "happy face", "frowny face", and "tears". Instantly crashes when resized in any way, and so consistently that it appears to be intentional. Enjoy playing a postage stamp on your battlestation. Then again that may be a feature, so that it doesn't distract from watching Twitch.

A buggy mess plain and simple. I had to fix it so I could play in anything besides a WAY too small resolution, then the intro broke, then after trying to bring the water jug on a girl's head to a fish man and winding up feeding her to him (Or was that just another bug?) I got stuck in an endless loop talking to an NPC.
