After teasing their collaboration for several weeks now, developer Capybara Games (Critter Crunch, Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes), singer-songwriter Jim Guthrie, and pixelartist/animator Craig "Superbrothers" Adams (Alpinist) posted this teaser video for their project, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, and no surprise, it looks/sounds amazing.
The Toronto-based indie artists describe Sword & Sworcery as "a brave experiment in I/O cinema, "a choice cut of myth and dreams", and "a crude videogame haiku about life, love & death". Those phrases sound right up my alley, and if there was a newsletter regarding the topics, I'd subscribe in a heartbeat -- in fact, there's a Superbrothers email list you can join.
Superbrothers explains the project's title:
"With regards to the intended meaning of the project name, the following is presented for your consideration: SUPERBROTHERS = a safe and reliable cure for the eyes; SWORD & SWORCERY = a fantasy subgenre characterized by swashbuckling heroes; EP = aka Extended Play, a vinyl record or digital download containing up to 37 minutes of music."
Considering the talent of all the parties involved, I doubt this will disappoint. You can read more about the project on its official site.
