Frames of Preference: Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP

SworceryIf I were to compare Sword and Sworcery to a film, it would have to be a mix of Hayao Miyazaki’s body of work and Koyaanisqatsi. The sound, visuals, and overall mood are like no other mobile game, and they all blend together into an incredible, yet brief experience. The story is simple; a lone female warrior named the Scythian is on a quest to reforge an artifact, but how she gets there is through manipulating the environment, fighting enemies, and slowing down more than most games do. The game even broke the fourth wall and told you to stop playing every few minutes, which served the dual purpose of allowing you to ponder the last area’s mysteries, while also lengthening what is already a short, yet sweet indie title.
