Superbrothers is a Toronto-based pixel artist (established in 2003 to “create remarkable audiovisual for a broad, literate audience”) who´s partnered with Jim Guthrie for his upcoming Iphone game “Sword & Sworcery” a very pixelly and nostalgic game…
So what is S&S? As he puts it himself…
a brave experiment in I/O cinema.
a crude videogame haiku about life, love & death.
a choice cut of myth & dreams
which hasn´t been released yet, but we´ll be waiting for it 😉
“When the iPhone or iPod Touch device is held horizontally, the sword is sheathed & it is possible to explore a painterly pixel world by tapping, dragging & pinching the multi-touch display”.
