This week on The Short Game, real life twin brothers Raygan and Shane (plus this other guy) talk about the totally digital brotherhood simulator Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, by Starbreeze Studios. It’s a simple and brisk but really emotionally effecting journey through a fantasy inspired setting. The hook here is the unusual controls; Brothers is a co-op game for one, where you control each brother with one stick of your gamepad. What could be a gimmick is used to great effect, and the game builds a great relationship between its characters over its two-to-three hour runtime.
