The lights are on
Starbreeze Studios takes a left turn with a beguiling platform/puzzle game that might best be described as "single-player co-op." What does that mean? Watch our Test Chamber on Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
During this Test Chamber, you'll get a taste of the game's gorgeous art style, action puzzles, and interesting control scheme – a control mechanic challenging enough that, even though I'd already beaten and reviewed the game, I struggled to use while talking into a microphone. But that's okay; I've only just got the whole walking-while-chewing-gum-thing down. In any case, this game kicks off Microsoft's annual Summer of Arcade promotion, and is a worthy entry.

How do you Forget the dad??? hahaha
This game looks very unique and fun. I'll probably have to pick it up.
I really like the art style and from what I saw just the brothers different interactions, I would pick it up but with dragons crown and payday next week I think it would fall between the cracks, perhaps later in the month. I will definitely be looking forward to playing it when I get the chance, but the summer of arcade game I am really looking forward to playing is flashback.
This is a great/ unique game once I started playing it I couldn't stop until the game was over. However, for those that are expecting a meatier game, it is pretty short at about 3.5-4 hours and costs 15 dollars.
Brothers looks good. It's a weird game for Starbreeze to make (their last game was the commercial flop Syndicate FPS reboot), but I like that the developer is branching out a bit from their usual FPS fare.
The Sniper Elite V2 Test Chamber mentioned in this video is the best Test Chamber so far. Watch it if you haven't yet.
this game looks fun! I may have to try it out!
I'll be getting this game eventually, it looks like a good time.
New Olympic sport, drunken cart barreling.
Great Test Chamber! This is a pretty interesting game. I might need to check it out.
This looks very cool.
Matt Helgeson, you are incredibly well spoken sir
