Last month I spoke about a game called Galaxy Jumper and Emma Trithart left a comment saying she really liked this other game called Sword & Sworcery. I immediately ran to google to figure out what it was and she was right. This is a very cool and different game!
With an art direction totally based on pixels, Sword & Sworcery brings a very nice and magic atmosphere, combined with adventure (you have to fight with your sword against bad monsters that gets in your way) and the friendship you make with funny characters.

The jokes are good, the music and art direction are amazing and its delicious to play. You can even tweet your friends while you play so they know where you are on the game. Thumbs up! :D
The video below gives a hint of what you’re going to see:

Thank you very much Emma for the tip and Nathan for letting me test the game! :D

    Aw hey, I’m so glad you checked it out! I still haven’t finished the game actually, so thank you for reminding me! My little Scythian lady awaits.

    I showed my son this post (thinking I was cool that I might know something he didn’t) and of course both my kids already own this! I love it when something so mainstream is done so aesthetically well.

  4. I love how much experimental illustration is going on in independent gaming at the moment having been a huge fan of Studios like Amanita since the early days. Fabulous!
