“With stunning combat and sound design, an amazing soundtrack that complements the world very well, and a story just begging to be explored further, Two Brothers looks to offer a game that plays against one’s expectations of this genre while also providing an intriguing complexity to its world and characters.”
“Two Brothers is a wonderful retro-inspired game with an interesting concept and solid core gameplay underneath it all so it isn’t just another love letter to the past that offers nothing else but nostalgia.
“Two Brothers is a game experience like no other. It is styled in classic green-tinted Game Boy fashion, turns death in video games on its head, has a spectacular musical score, and a ton of personality. Two Brothers is an epic quest for color that nobody should pass up. The time that Ackk Studios has put into Two Brothers shows in every facet of the game and is very impressive work for such a small indie developer.
“The gameplay has a shockingly high amount of polish given how little money it was made for and the music is honestly some of the best you’ll hear in an indie game. If you enjoy the overhead Zelda games, but wish they were more action-oriented, this seems like an easy recommendation to check out when it’s released in a few weeks.
“Two Brothers is a fantastic nostalgia ride that has me super excited for full release. Between many jokes relating to famous games, and the very neat life/death element, there is no other indie game I am looking forward to more. The story has a great length, the game plays and sounds great, and it even includes many modern game features such as game altering decision making.”
“What amazes me about Two Brothers is not only the feeling of nostalgia but the gameplay, controls, fantastically varied music, and the story reminds you of how modern this title can be. Using the classic black & white of the Game Boy really makes the “color” feel that much for poignant as it “blooms” into the world around you. I’ve just scratched the surface with the demo, but I am looking forward to the release so I can experience what else they have up their sleeves from this full sized “indie” game. Ackk Studios is definitely a group to keep an eye on.”
