It was only this morning that hints of a Steam version for Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP had entered the conversation; now we've got a confirmation from the powers that be. This is really happening, and sooner rather than later.
The game will first arrive on PC "before the next dark moon." According to the announcement video, it'll be available for purchase on April 16. As for the Mac build, the hint being offered is "before the summer solstice." The developers of S:S&S EP say it's "been minorly adapted to better suit player input via the two-button mouse, and some audiovisual elements have been subtly refined as appropriate..."
If I kept a list of games that could convince me to buy an iPad, Sword & Sworcery would probably sit firmly at the top. Thankfully, I've never been a list maker -- not even for groceries. Looks like my disorganization has finally paid off. Those making the trip to PAX East this weekend will want to swing by the Capy booth.
