Have You Played… Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.I wrote the other day that Grim Fandango proved to be a metaphor for the decline from wider relevancy of the point and click adventure game.

Capybara Games have confirmed that their beautiful, lo-fi iOS adventure game Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery will be arriving on Steam "very soon".

Sort of nostalgic, but at the same time feeling quite modern.There's also going to be a Mac version, of course.…
