Two boys are trying to find medicine for their dying father. That’s the story of Two Brothers. Not that you’ll get it from the trailer, that’s in the video’s description. What you’ll get from the trailer is pretty windmills, filial love, and ogres.
Brothers is being developed by a rather odd collaboration: 505 Games and Starbreeze. Responsible for The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay and The Darkness, Starbreeze are held in fairly high regard – if we skip over the Syndicate reboot. But 505 Games are not really in the same ball park: they’re themakers of Naughty Bear, Zumba, and Michael Phelps: Push the Limits. If the artwork of the game is testament to the game’s quality it may be that 505 are capable of quite a bit more than we’ve seen in their other games.
They’re also getting help from Josef Fares, director of Kopps.
According to our intern Prez Relice, who’s just come in from the cold,filmmaker Faressaid”When I first visualisedBrothers – A Tale of Two SonsI knew I wanted to combine the deep, engrossing storyline of a film with the physical experience of a video game, allowing players to emotionally connect with the characters as they trek across sweeping, interactive environments such as peaceful vistas, foreboding forests and dangerous mountainsides. I chose to partner with Starbreeze and 505 Games to make my vision a reality and am confident that together we are creating an amazing and unique experience for gamers.”
Brothers is heading to our screens in Spring next year.
Oh, I bet that ogre’s their sick dad.
