After Lucas Arts decided to focus on making crappy Star Wars games and suffered the loss of their core creative team (who went on to found Telltale Games, who is releasing some awesome games to this day) and Sierra Games went the way of the dodo, it looked like a very bleak future for fan of graphic adventure games. Luckily there were enough fans of these laid back, narrative driven games who started tinkering with breaking into the game development industry and started to create some great games. With the recent surge in popularity of the indie game scene some of these games that may have had trouble finding an audience have a way of finding their way into the hands of the people who would really enjoy them. By way of The Humble Indie Bundle I got my hands on a copy of the oddly titled Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery E.P. (to now be abbreviated as S:S&SEP)and its soundtrack Sword & Sworcery LP – The Ballad of the Space Babies. Being the only title in the bundle that I have yet to hear of or play, I dived right in with no preconceptions and almost immediately found myself completely sucked in by the games amazing atmosphere, excellent soundtrack, and simple point and click interface. As I delved further into the game, its world just simply mesmerized me unlike a game has yet to do in a long time and after my 5 hours for a full playthrough I found myself emotionally moved as the final scenes played out. And all of this is presented with minimalistic ‘8Bit retro graphics’ and the use of music.
