21.03.12VERNAL EQUINOX / ANNIVERSARY #SWORCERY SALE


1 YEAR AGO

The vernal equinox has arrived, and the time has come to remind you that the day & the night are in balance. And in #sworcery lore, this means the game goes on sale for $1.99/$0.99 for a very limited time.

It’s also a very important time, as this marks one year since #sworcery initially launched last vernal equinox. If you look at the post below… you’ll see that we have had one heck of a year:)

Meanwhile, we’re hard at work getting #sworcery ready for the iPad 3’s Retina display. We’ll have more news on that very soon, and boy-oh-boy are we ever excited to see superbrothers pixels on that beautiful screen.

15.03.12#SWORCERY WINS GAME DEVELOPER CHOICE AWARD!


Sworcery wins Game Developer Choice Award

The response to #Sworcery has been overwhelming from the day it launched. Winning a Game Developer Choice Award at this year’s GDC… well… that… wow… that has melted our hearts and humbled us completely…

At this year’s Game Developers Choice Awards, our peers named Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP the Best Handheld/Mobile Game of 2011. In a very real way, it felt like a culmination of everything we had worked for, and everything we accomplished with the game.

What a crazy, crazy thing to have happened… What a crazy year we have had…

A sincere thanks to everyone who voted for us, supported us, and played the game.

And a humongous, heartfelt, teary-eyed thanks to Superbrothers and Jim Guthrie for going on this insane journey with us. We all jumped off a cliff together… and made this magical little thing called Sworcery

A bunch of happy dudes

This journey started at GDC… and in a way, that night, it ended at GDC.
Thank you so so so much.
