Trailer for Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP Makes Me Finally Want an iPad

If you haven’t yet seen it already, the new trailer for the upcoming iPad indie game Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP is pretty freaking fantastic. It hits all the right notes to get someone interested in an indie game: charm, retro graphics, a smarmy/ironic “we’re clearly more important than the bigger games” tone, and a glimpse of gameplay that looks fun and quite badass.

I’m still not even quite what this game is about, but the graphics look to be fantastic, the gameplay and controls look intuitive to the iPad’s method of input, and most importantly, you can definitely feel the love and passion behind the game. Hopefully you’ll be able to find out my hands-on impressions of this baby when I find it on the GDC floor later this week. For now, watch the trailer here, and hit their main website for more info.

Allen is an utter whore of a gamer; he's completely open-minded to all games, be they AAA blockbusters or $5 casual children's games. His focus is on indie games specifically, valuing gameplay and ingenuity over sparkly visuals and ridiculous gimmicks. When he's not geeking out over the newest art game, he's out toning his sexy, sculpted shoulders while surfing epic 1.5ft waves, or having a good time with local, high-gravity microbrews.
