IGR’s Top 10 Best Indie Games of 2013 and Honorable Mentions


10. Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons

Starbreeze Studios AB
Windows PC, Steam, XBOX 360

Though twin-stick controls are nothing new, Brothers takes the allure of Peter Molyneaux’s Fable series as a backdrop to a consistently heartwarming tale, and adds crafty realtime action puzzles to the mix that require you to think as one brother with your left hand and the other brother – with his own distinct advantages and disadvantages – with the right hand.

Though people say they understand the game from watching playthrough videos, this game is not a spectator sport; the feeling of dealing with each brother in real-time actually makes your brain feel like it is working in full gear. It’s not like QWOP however; the gameplay is smooth and seamless and has incredible production value, and often takes a moment to just stop and smell the roses. An incredible outing from Starbreeze Studios. ~ Indie-Game-Freak

  1. “Gone Home accomplishes a remarkable feat – building up a series of narratives in the player’s mind through mere suggestion, but ultimately proving none of them to be true.”

    Gragh! Why would that be the first sentence?! And I can’t let myself read the rest to get any sort of context, so now I’ll be assuming everything goes to pot, and whenever I get around to playing GH, it’ll likely be a niggle in the back of my mind, not allowing me to attach to anything that seems to have gone on. sigh, It feels like single-player experiences are more important to play “day one” than multiplayer, in this digital age. So hard to keep myself away from spoilers (or what I take as spoilers), y’know?

      1. Not to play devils advocate to much here but the game has been out for months and making press every day like crazy AND this is a GOTY article all kinds of red flags flying around if you don’t want spoilers my man 😉
