Two Brothers | oprainfall

In case you hadn’t been paying attention, we here at oprainfall are pretty excited for Ackk Studios’ debut title, Two Brothers, and we have covered news about it at some length. From previews to screenshots to interviews, Ackk Studios have done whatever they could to appease excited fans while development continued. Of course, one of the biggest questions that fans always have about just about any game is when it will be released. Well, Ackk has finally come out and announced a street date for their upcoming action-adventure title that redefines the concept of death in video games.

In a recent post on their Facebook page, Ackk officially announced that fans will finally be able to play Two Brothers on Windows or Linux for themselves on October 15th:

After about a year and a half of full time development Two Brothers is nearing it’s completion. We are so thankful for everyone who helped us make this game a reality and we are thrilled that we can finally bring the game to you.

We’ve picked a release date that can ensure that the game is highly polished and not lacking in side quests, secondary characters, and an ending that we believe rivals anything we imagined possible in a game like this.

Ackk went on to talk about how the game will feature “a massive main quest, a huge side story, and an enormous soundtrack of over 90 tracks […]” Aside from this exciting news about the game’s release, Ackk also said that they would be using the time between now and the game’s release to showcase the sprites of those who donated at least $100 during the game’s crowdfunding period. Additionally, backers who gave at least $10 will be receiving copies of the game’s soundtrack in the next few weeks. Ackk also hopes to release the physical bonuses for donators in their appropriate tiers before the game’s release.

In addition to the Windows and Linux releases Two Brothers will also eventually release on PSN, Xbox 360, Wii U and Mac OS.

    How does it redefine death?

      In death the world becomes colored, in life it looks like a 16 bit Gameboy

    • Gary65

      That’s so confusing. Why isn’t it the other way around? Wouldn’t that make you want to die more so you can properly experience the game? Unless you like vintage play, what’s the advantage in staying alive? When they said “redefine death”, I thought they meant something like there was an afterlife where dead characters did different missions, while the live ones did their half of the story. This aesthetic affect of death is silly.

    Freaking October and November, all summer long I didn’t buy anything. Wind Waker HD comes out in the 4th, then Pokemon on the 12th, this on the 15th, and Batman on the 25th

    Is that the release date for all platforms or just PC and Mac?

    • Thomas Johnson

      Just PC/Mac/Linux for now. The Wii U and 360 versions won’t be out till later. I don’t know about the 360 version, but the developers said they’re aiming for January for the Wii U version. The article is very misleading about that (or maybe the author didn’t know).

    • Tyler Lubben

      Apologies. The article has been updated with more accurate information.

      Thanks! Although, according to their announcement, the Mac version will also be available on the 15th.
