'Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery' Coming to the PC and Mac

The iPhone and iPad indie hit is coming to larger, more powerful machines as developer Capybara Games promises minor tweaks and updates and a playable version at PAX East.

The release will be hitting Steam sometime "soon," in a post on the Capybara site (specifically "before the next dark moon") with the Mac version to follow prior to the summer solstice. So... May? Let's say May-ish and just go from there.

Here's how Capybara describes their IGF award-winning game:

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery is a brave experiment in I/O cinema; A fresh approach to adventure & action designed for Apple’s touchtronic machinery; A 21st century update to the pioneering works of Miyamoto, Mechner & Chahi; The recipient of the ‘Achievement in Art’ award from the 2010 IGF Mobile; A crude videogame haiku about life, love & death; A showcase for a style of painterly pixel artwork familiar to readers of Wired & The New York Times; A videogame EP featuring music by rockstar & critically acclaimed composer Jim Guthrie; Created with a broad, literate audience in mind. A choice cut of myth & dreams.

Look for the PC port to replace the touch controls from the iOS version with two-button mouse support when it's released in the coming months.
