Director Josef Fares’ Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons was, without question, one of my favorite games of 2013. It combined gorgeous fairytale art, an emotionally powerful story, and unique controls that added to both the game and the story itself.
At this weekend’s Game Awards, we got a peek at the game he’s working on with his new studio, Hazelight, to be published by Electronic Arts.
What we do know about the game? Nothing, really. The trailer shows a couple guys in a fairly modern-looking box car train. It’s short, gorgeous, and tells us absolutely nothing useful – not even a title.
But with Josef Fares in charge of the game, and a studio made up mostly of people who worked on Brothers, chances are good we’re in for a unique, memorable experience.
