Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery
I'm a child of the 80's. Video games were pretty much a mandatory part of growing up at that time and I remember many hours being spent playing games like Zelda and Mario. So it's really exciting to have some new 8-bit games to help relive those experiences. Superbrothers' Sword & Sworcery is one that I'm most excited about. Everything about it looks so beautiful and thought out. And with the added gameplay elements of touch and the accelerometer, it's awesome to see 8-bit style games approached from a different direction. I haven't seen any planned release dates, but I hope it's soon.
Another amazing game that is in the works is Shaun Inman's Mimeoverse: Mimeo and the Kleptopus King. Really interesting concept and really amazing that he's added so many elements from the evolution of gaming.
Hat's off to these guys for paying tribute to the simpler times in gaming. Be sure to check both games out and keep an eye out for them to drop in the App Store.
