Brace yourselves, folks. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is making its way from the iPad to the humble iPhone and iPod touch this week. With Canadian developers Superbrothers, Jim Guthrie and Capybara describing the event as “The glorious dawn of a tiny new era”, you know you’re in for a treat.
The S:S&S EP project began life on these intimate, microscopic platforms… so many of the key art & design decisions were made with this very particular form factor in mind. While the size of the iPad is certainly a treat for S:S&S EP this is definitely ‘the way it was meant to be’ – it’s an entire little world you can slip into your pocket at any time. In many ways this is our most significant launch & it is also something of a homecoming – so please help us make some noize!
The game is actually launching in two formats: The iPhone/iPod touch-only copy – Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Micro, while the original big brother for iPad – Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is getting an exciting new Universal update so you can play on either iDevice. (The devs suggest that, even if you only have an iPhone right now, maybe pick up the Universal version to play on your inevitable iPad!)
If you’ve been hanging out for this one since the game’s big splash on Twitter, but didn’t have an iPad to join in the fun, here’s your change. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP (Micro and Universal) will be hitting the App Store “before Thursday, April 21st 2011”. Hooray!
