Summary

Guide two brothers on an epic fairy tale journey from visionary Swedish film director, Josef Fares and top-tier developer Starbreeze Studios.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons tells a suite of painfully personal and unique stories set in a gorgeous world. It’s a unique twin-stick adventure brimming with imagination that shows in its art and dual-action puzzles. Though it has its fair share of control frustrations, the risky design decisions it does nail help make this game one of my most memorable of 2013.

Brothers isn't necessarily an uplifting game; to compare it to a fairytale is to evoke the original meaning of that term, the one designed to scare small children. Some grim things occur in the course of the brothers' quest. But the brothers' commitment to their goal and to each other is so strong, the various parts of this game so superbly crafted and woven together, that it's hard not to feel deeply touched when you finally reach the end of the road and see how deftly this game marries its gameplay to its themes in a way few have before.
