Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a critically-acclaimed adventure game by Starbreeze Studios. It was developed in collaboration with Swedish filmmaker Josef Fares, who internationally is best known for his film Zozo. It was the first release in the 2013 Summer of Arcade, hitting XBLA on August 7th, 2013. It was later released on Steam for PC and PlayStation Network on September 3rd, 2013.
Each of the brothers is controlled by one dual stick, which means that there is no switching between them, because both are being controlled at all times. The brothers can perform various unique interactions with things in the environment. The game's puzzles revolve mostly around traversal and the mechanics that come from the dual stick controls.
The game revolves around two brothers, whose father is dying, and who can only be saved by a very unique and rare medicine in a far off land. The brothers decide to take action and venture on to save their father.
