Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a fairy tale adventure and arcade game created by the Swedish Starbreeze studio. The developer is known for many successful productions, such as The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, The Darkness or Syndicate. Interestingly, the Swedish director Josef Fares, the author of such films as In a Foreign Country, Police and Zozo, took part in the work on Brothers.

The plot of the game draws its inspiration from both the rich Nordic culture and classic fantasy stories, reminiscent of the Fable series. It tells the story of the brothers who set out on a dangerous journey to find a cure for their sick father. Reaching the healing "water of life" requires getting through both peaceful valleys and dangerous mountains. The gameplay is full of platform scenes and simple puzzles. A friend monster, for example, assists you in climbing and crossing the abysses.

Producers of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons wanted to create a kind of emotional experience that would involve players and allow them to live with their heroes. The realization of this goal was helped by a nice, picturesque visual setting and perfectly selected, subdued music. It is also worth noting the unusual control system in which we control both brothers at the same time, and most of the challenges facing us require their close collaboration.
