Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP is an iOS adventure game that emphasizes a unique audiovisual style. It also takes advantage of the iOS device’s orientation during gameplay. If you can imagine those old point-and-click adventure games, Superbrothers is a re-imagining of that.

Since its initial release during the spring of last year, Superbrothers has amassed critcal praise and great commercial success, putting Capybara Games on everyone’s radar.
The most amazing thing about Capybara’s award wins, is the fact that they rose above triple-A titles like THQ’s Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, and EA’s Fight Night: Champion. Truly a shining moment for independent studios everywhere.
