Watch, Listen and Learn: Toronto developed Sword & Sworcery makes Wired UK’s Top 10 Releases to Watch in 2011
Sword & Sworcery certainly sticks out on Wired UK’s games to watch in 2011 list: it and thatgamecompany’s Journey are the only items that weren’t created by industry juggernauts like Rockstar or Nintendo. I suppose their presence on the list also fills the indie game quota, and a mobile/iPad entry in the list, but its choice to represent that sector speaks volumes. Anyone who saw the game’s presentation at Gamercamp 2010 will know why S:S&S:EP (copy editor’s nightmare, right there) is special, with its combination of mature pixel art and a haunting score. It’s proof that Toronto’s growing indie game community can create fantastic things, and that their talents can garner recognition even across the Atlantic.
