Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP is an art-house indie game that won rave critical reviews and a remarkable volume of downloads on iOS devices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and now you can play it on Windows PCs. The game is up for sale on the Steam digital distribution service starting today.
The downloadable game will cost $7.99 in the future, but for the launch window (until April 23rd) it’s on sale for $5.99 — 25% off. It also includes a digital copy of the soundtrack.
The game doubles as, well, a game, and “a prog rock concept record” featuring music from Canadian songsmith Jim Guthrie. Combine that with the retro King’s Quest-style graphics and a dreamlike, painterly aesthetic and you’ve got a very unique gaming experience.
While it doesn’t have multi-player gameplay by the traditional model, it does optionally let you cooperate with friends through Twitter by tweeting clues and other tidbits as you uncover them in your journey as a “warrior monk” wandering a peculiar landscape.
Here’s an original iPad trailer. If you download it, let us know how well you think it made the transition to the point-and-click PC platform.
