The Most Beautiful Sights On My iPad Are These First Few Minutes Of Sword & Sworcery

People who are in the know have been waiting for Sword & Sworcery for many, many months.


They've expected one gorgeous iPad game from a little development studio called Capy.


These people know an attractive game when they see its first Ico-meets-Atari screenshot. These people know that "sworcery" isn't a typo and that the full title is Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery EP.

But what else do they know? The game's been a mystery. Is it an adventure game? An action game? Or what? I've got the first several minutes of the game for you to look at here. Enjoy the sights.

Sword & Sworcery will be out on March 24 on iPad for "well under $10," with the downloadable/vinyl soundtrack — Jim Guthrie's Sword & Sworcery LP: The Ballad of the Space Babie — to follow a couple of weeks later. The iPhone version should be out a couple of weeks after that.

Correction: In the video, I misspoke and said the game will cost $10 on the iPad. It won't. It'll cost "well under" that price, according to the developers. I apologize for the error.

iphone is at least a phone (sort of).

ipad is the current height of ridiculous, unfettered consumerism: a device as or more expensive than a home console that plays games by an large originally designed to play on a (n i)phone.

It doesn't edit music and movies like a doesn't *do* *anything.*
