Game is definately interesting. This graphic - so simple...
But it raises hope for advanced styoryline simultaneously!

The music sounds good, and thus, I will probably buy it

Looks great. Any idea on a release date or did I miss that?

I love it. I'm really happy how developers take a chance on the iphone/ipod touch to create something different and unique.

To tell you the truth I'm really tired of all the wolfenstien remakes on the consoles.

Hey Touch-Arcade Pals,

I just wanted to pop in and say Hi on behalf of the unique collaboration of Capy/Superbrothers/Jim Guthrie.

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is still deep in development, and we're hard at work making the game a feast for the eyes/ears/fingers, so there isn't a ton I can share with you right now. I will definitely make sure to keep this thread up-to-date with new info as it comes.

You can also hop over the games webnet super-address www.swordandsworcery.com and sign up for the teletext bulletins for moon-cycle-based updates and accounts for that twitter thingamajig.
