The iPhone (and iPod touch) version of Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP drops on Thursday, if the moon is in the right phase and all. Described by Superbrothers’ Craig Adams as “the record you can hang out in.” The small version is dubbed S:S&S EP Micro.
Although the game was released on the iPad first, its creators first envisioned Sword & Sworcery on a small platform, and made their key art and design decisions based upon the smaller form factor. “This is definitely ‘the way it was meant to be’ – it’s an entire little world you can slip into your pocket at any time,” says the team in their press release.
I’ve been playing the game over the last few weeks, and it’s definitely a unique and immersive experience, best enjoyed with headphones. The fanciful 8-bit art style combined with awesome music composed by Jim Guthrie all wrapped up in an interactive touchable adventure game is compelling. Add to it the ability to tweet out any bit of dialog from the game, and a unique relationship between the game and the real phases of the actual moon, and you have one of the most innovative ideas since, I don’t know, Myst.
If you’ve already purchased the game, you’ll be pleased to note that the iPad version will now be universal, meaning you essentially get the Micro version for free. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Micro will be available on Thursday for $2.99.
