Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery
Far more epic in scope than its title suggests, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery game is an unusual mash-up of moody concept album and dark fantasy adventure game. The line between the two is fuzzy to begin with, and it blurs together in unexpected ways as you delve deeper into this enchanting world. Sword & Sworcery's simple-but-evocative 8-bit art style, unconventional storytelling and abstract puzzles coalesce with Jim Guthrie's marvelous atmospheric soundtrack to create something uniquely magical. It's won many awards and for good reason so check it out.
