‘It’s not A Way Out 2,’ says Hazelight boss about their next game

Fold up your overalls, prisoner. We don’t know much about the next game from Hazelight, the studio who made co-op jailbreak ‘em up A Way Out. But we at least know it isn’t a sequel. "What I can say is that it's not A Way Out 2,” said Josef Fares, studio head, when he spoke to me at Gamelab Barcelona. “But it's going to be…

A Way Out is a co-op prison break game from Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons dev

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is one of the best co-op games I've ever played, which is remarkable because it's a singleplayer game. One of its creators, film-maker Josef Fares, has announced a new game as part of Electronic Arts' EA Originals indie label. A Way Out [official site] is a split-screen two-player prison break game, so naturally I'm calling it Brothers: A Tale…

Brothers Creator Now Riding The Rails At Hazelight

Single-player co-op tearjerker Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons was an unexpectedly touching game from Starbreeze, the Swedish lot best known for fine games about shooting men in the face. Might it be the first of many sappy games from Starbreeze? Well, probably not. Brothers creator Josef Fares has formed a new studio, Hazelight, with several members of the Brothers team. Their first game is…

She & Him – Together: Amna & Saif Tries To Rethink Co-op

Talk about what does it right, not just what to some eyes does not. It's too easy to forget how important that is, to highlight the things that are out there for people who want something different to play - and someone different to play as. I don't today highlight Together: Anna & Saif because of the apparent gender of any of the protagonists, but…

Family Gathering: Brothers – A Tale Of Two Sons

I'm not sure if any of the RPS crew have played Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons yet, but it's out today and sounds like it'd be the ideal interactive experience for at least a couple of us. It's a character-driven, single player co-op game, and I'm not sure what either of those things mean. 'Character-driven' because it's about the brothers and their encounters with…

Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons PC Bound

I'd like to think that Starbreeze's self-co-operation game Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons came into being when Creative director Josef Fares looked at a modern game controller. He held it in his hand, probably while wearing protective gloves, and spotted the symmetry between the d-pad and the four face buttons. Then he shouted "eureka", and ran around the offices showing it to everyone. Work…

Go Cooperate With Yourself – Brothers: Tale Of Two Sons

Starbreeze debuted a fairly promising-looking trailer for its bro-op puzzle adventure Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons not too terribly long ago, but it wasn't tremendously illuminating in regards to how the game will actually, you know, play. Now, however, we finally have a (multi-part) answer: a) as a fascinating little hybrid of single-player and co-op, and b) probably better with a gamepad. While the…

Bro-op: Starbreeze Reveals Fantasy Romp ‘Brothers’

Starbreeze likes dark things. Once upon a time, it put out the pitch black Chronicles of Riddick and, er, The Darkness - among others. (It also helmed the recent Syndicate reboot, but we don't talk about that.) Its next big project, then, comes as quite the change of pace. To my knowledge, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is almost entirely bereft of hyper-violent space…
