Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a playable fairy tale
by Steven Hansen

I caught wind of Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons by way of a short teaser trailer a while back (you can find it after the jump) and was digging the art style, but put it out of mind. As its spring release approaches, however, it seems to be picking up steam. After GDC, Mikael Nermark, CEO and President of Starbreeze Studios, and Josef Fares, the Swedish film director helming Brothers, paid us a visit to show off the pleasant-looking game .

The story is minimal and noninvasive. The two brothers, each of whom is controlled by one of the analog sticks, are on a quest. There’s no co-op. Navigating both brothers at the same time is part of the gameplay -- there is a learning curve to it, but it works surprisingly smoothly. What really stands out about Brothers is its tranquilly unfolding atmosphere, abetted by warm art direction and great sound work.
