Brothers was written and directed by Swedish-Lebanese filmmaker Josef Fares, who developed what his first game in collaboration with Starbreeze, and would later go on to found It Takes Two studio Hazelight.
The fantasy game sees the player controlling two brothers at once as they set out on a journey to find a cure to save their dying father.
It was first released in 2013 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, before making its way to PS4, Xbox One, iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Nintendo Switch and Amazon Luna. 2019’s Switch release added a new two-player co-op mode to the game.
Brothers won several notable awards including the prize for Best Innovation at the 2014 BAFTA Video Game Awards.
In 2015 Starbreeze said the title would be “best nurtured under a new owner” and sold the rights for Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons to its publisher 505 Games.
Ian Howe, then president of 505 Games, said at the time: “Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a remarkable game, one of the most affecting games of the last generation and one of which 505 Games has been very proud to be associated.”
