Brothers Creator's Latest Effort "Hasn't Been Done Before"
Swedish filmmaker Josef Fares received plenty of recognition and acclaim with last year's digital cooperative effort, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
The well-received game allowed developer Starbreeze to turn a profit and now, Fares says he's working on something new. In fact, despite all the innovation and originality we've seen in the industry over the years (especially in the downloadable/indie realm), the new project is just that: New.
Here's what Fares told Digital Spy in a recent interview:
"I'm moving on to the next thing. I have my next idea ready, it's super cool. It's very different. I can tell you this--if I tell you the idea now, you'd say, 'I haven't played something like this before'. I can't tell you more. But definitely something that hasn't been done before."
We always like to hear about future freshness in gaming, and Brothers was a definite winner. Of course, originality doesn't mean much if you can't execute; frankly, there have been plenty of new ideas out there that most people don't even know about. And they don't know about 'em because the games in which they existed sucked.
But Fares and Starbreeze know what they're doing, so we're hopeful.
