Superbrothers + Capy

If you’re at all into indie gaming, then you know there’s something special happening in Toronto.

I don’t know why that is, but there’s a fantastic community of game developers doing very interesting things in that city, and you of course need to mention Superbrothers and Capy when this topic is brought up. What has me happy is that Superbrothers’ Craig Adams and Capy’s Kris Piotrowski are both in town because of today’s release of a Japanese version of the Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP game — localized by my good friends at 8-4 — and I’ll soon get to meet them.

There’s a get-together happening tomorrow night (Friday, June 22, 20:00-23:00) at SuperDeluxe — as far as I know it’s open to the public, which is why I’m mentioning it here — to celebrate the release of the game, and it also acts as a replacement for the regular gaming industry drinkup that usually takes place on Thursday nights in another part of town.

If you haven’t experienced Sword & Sworcery EP yet because of a lack of iOS devices in your life, the game was recently released for both PC and Mac. There’s also the new remix album for Japan.

We got The Megatome & we are the smartest.
