Ladies & gentlemen,
It's time to point & click on PC via Steam with an olde fashioned new edition of S:S&S EP for electric computers. Explore the foothills, forests & subterrenean caverns of Mingi Taw as never before - with a two-button mouse! Have you completed The Scythian's woeful errand and borne witness to the awful torment of martyrdom?
From a robotic representative from Superbrothers Inc.:
"This new edition includes Jim Guthrie's legendarily epic Sword & Sworcery LP in its entirety. Fitting into the continuum of great adventure games on PC, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP has been re-engineered by videogame wizards at Capy to be a faithful representation of the original touchtronic edition, only it has been adapted to better fit the input style of the two-button mouse. The new edition looks & sounds pretty fancy, plus it's still pretty darn affordable, so we're hoping to connect with a whole new audience with this 'choice cut of myth & dreams' that has been hilariously described as "A landmark achievement, it does for independent game design what the Washington Monument did for independent obelisk design"(Rob Dubbin, Kill Screen Magazine).
Some other relevant blurbz:
- "Apart from a few glaring spelling errors, I found this game to be extremely pleasant." - Tim Schafer, Double Fine honcho, known for Day Of The Tentacle, Full Throttle & Psychonauts
- "I was almost crying when I was burning to ashes." - Eric Chahi, known for Another World, From Dust
- "One of the top 10 videogames of 2011." - Lev Grossman, Time Magazine
Note: This new edition will also be available for Mac before the summer solstice.
Enjoying the music in that clip? That's a remix of Jim Guthrie's song The Ballad of the Space Babies. The new mix is by Scntfc, who also provided lunatic soundscapes for a hidden room in S:S&S EP known as The Moon Grotto, a location that only a few of you found (you need to get to Session 3 & fight The Grizzled Boor on Side B, retrieve his key & use it on the locked door on the road up to Mingi Taw near the stone tablet with the lunar pictrograms).
Confession: We had to mess with Scntc's remix a bit for the clip but you'll be able to enjoy the full-length song via Scntfc's Moon Grotto 7" on vinyl (available soon to the folks who kickstarted Venus Patrol). Scntc's remix will probably be available via the internet a little later on.
LISTEN? If you'd like to listen to an excerpt from this Scntfc remix then you might like to click here. Thank you for your attention, patience & faith.
