PC indie hit, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, is making its way to mobile devices. Developer Starbreeze Studios showed a port of the game on a tablet during the E3 event going on right now. No release date has been given though.
The game garnered very good reviews when it came out a couple of years ago, despite being an indie low budget game. I don’t want to spoil the story for you, so I won’t go into too much detail. It especially excelled in eliciting tense and personal emotions despite having no script or understandable language. That is because of its strong story that plays on familial love and sacrifice, a theme that is relatable to anyone and everyone.
It also boasts terrific graphics that will make you want to stop and stare. In fact, during certain points in the game, there are benches that you can sit specifically to marvel at the beauty of the world Starbreeze Studios have created.
However, what got me worried is the fact that Brothers on PC is best played on a dual stick gamepad. Each brother is controlled on each stick, and you still have to press buttons to activate/move/jump. I am really not sure how this would translate to mobile devices where you only have the two thumbs on each side. I can’t imagine having to put down my tablet on a table just so that I can use more fingers to press more buttons. In any case, we’ll see. No doubt this fact has crossed their mind as well.
The game is actually on sale on Steam now for 80% off! Or you can wait for the mobile version. We’ll be sure to let you know when the game releases on the Google Play Store.
