This game is amazing

Its a single player co-op game, you control 2 brothers, and have to platform and solve puzzles using both of them at the same time
The brothers have different abilities, like the older brother is stronger so he can do some stuff involving strength that the younger brother cant, and the younger brother is smaller so he can fit into places where the older brother cant

The controls take a bit of getting used to, and i had to use a controller to play it because the keyboard was really awkward to me since it was impossible to mirror the controls without having the interaction key for each brother being on the opposite side or using a different finger for it, a controller is much better for this game
Even after i was used to it i had to make sure to keep the brothers on the side of the screen that my hands controlled, so the older brother who you use the left stick/left trigger had to be on the left side of the screen and the younger brother had to be on the right side, if they got switched around it felt like my controls were reversed and was really disorienting
I dont think this wouldve been as bad if i used a controller more often as i almost never do since i would be more used to it so this isnt a complaint with the game
Most of the time the game will put the brothers on the correct side of the screen so it was never really a problem and never caused me to fail

The best part of the game is the story
Its told through body language and context rather then through dialog
Well, its more like the dialog in the game is in a made up language that is consistent enough to start understanding/interpreting pretty quickly by using body language and context
Because of that i think the story is a lot more powerful then if it was told in a standard way

It was so powerful that it actually made me cry, twice
I dont cry at any form of media, sometimes ill tear up, 1 or 2 tears might escape, but never at a game, and never like this, this was to the point where i would consider it to be crying (1 or 2 tears isnt crying)
The first time was pretty obvious, i suspected it before it happened, but it was done in such a powerful way that it still made me cry
The second time was such a simple thing but was so powerful to me, i didnt see it coming at all

The game is about 3 hours long, i played it in 1 sitting, if you play it (and you should) finishing it in 1 sitting is the best way to experience it

Yes to everything Pat said. It was an incredible game. I got it during the last steam sale and just played it last night.

This game is an experience.

It's a puzzle platformer but the puzzles aren't to hard. They're quite simple actually. I feel this simplicity comes from the creators not wanting to story to stagnate based on the the gamers affinity with puzzle games.

It'll take around 3 hours to beat on your first playthrough, thats including exploring.

The world that was built in the game is quaint, yet epic simultaneously. This game needs to be played in one sitting. Just find an evening in which you have nothing planned and just play it.

O and you need to play it with a controller. I used to xbox pc controller. The controls take getting used to in the beginning, but after a while you can get adjusted.

I did it on keyboard (Achievement Unlocked)

The game was really good and touching. The environment was beast. I wish there was more!
The fact that you guys told me it was touching allowed me to guess the end though, but it was still pretty powerful. 10/10 would play again Razz
