The Other Brothers

I just noticed this game in an article on Kotaku

There is also a dev blog, which the developers - who describe themselves as " ...a renegade team of industry professionals with the crazy idea of throwing AAA graphics to the curb, and over the top budgets to create something downright fun just like the early pioneers in our industry..." - plan to update regularly through a development phase that they describe as "freakishly fast", and there is also the suggestion that there might be test builds posted there to play and comment on in the future.

The game is described as "...A pixelated family fun adventure of running, jumping, collecting, racing against the clock " A familiar premise perhaps; but with, the developers claim, a twist.

Some screenshots/concept art (not sure which)-edit-their dev blog was updated with the full, un-cropped images, and now it certainly looks more like a side-scrolling platformer:

Definitely. Seeing the pictures, I now have the same tingly feeling that I had when I anticipated the releases of S&S and Puzzle Agent 2.
