We’re all IPhone & IPad App fiends over here at ST8MNT. You can find us on twitter, instagram, touching clouds in Tiny Wings, or just Hanging with Friends! We thought you guys should see this awesome game that Superbrothersinc released earlier this year called Sword and Sworcery ep. The game animation is just beautiful, and the experimental side to the design is what makes creativity an awesome gift! The simplicity of the games aesthetic is certainly retro, but what a refreshing take on the classic Zelda / Castlevania / 8-bit look! This is pixel art at it’s finest, take a look:
The game was designed exclusively for apples touchtronic machinery, and is an epic adventure game that has a little bit of problem solving, lots of exploration, and some really fun battling / encounters. These guys won some awards this past year including the ‘Achievement in Art’ award from the 2010 IGF Mobile. Superbrothersinc is an awesome independent game maker based out of Toronto, Ontario.
If you want to find out more, or download the game head over to their website: http://www.swordandsworcery.com/. Check out the trailer in the mean time!
Oh, and here is a great quote from the Swiss philosopher Carl Yung (The mind behind Syncronicity), I pulled this from the S&S website, and just felt like it was worth sharing with you guys!
“I feel it is the duty of one who goes his own way to inform society of what he finds on his voyage of discovery. Not the criticism of individual contemporaries will decide the truth or falsity of these discoveries, but future generations. There are things that are not yet true today, perhaps we dare not find them true, but tomorrow, they may be. So every man whose fate it is to go his individual way must proceed with hopefulness and watchfulness, ever conscious of his loneliness and its dangers.”
