It is funny because Flashback is the only game I had not remember seeing before this trailer.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is out today. The reviews seem to be pretty good so far.
Quote:
Brothers tests the limits of what games are capable of communicating and, in doing so, strengthens the medium as a whole, if only a little. The game's final moments moved me to tears in the act of pressing a button. Not because it triggered some heart-wrenching dialogue or sorrowful music, but by the implications of the mechanic itself. I'm not sure there's a better compliment I can pay or a better indicator of how important of a game Brothers is.

The tale of these two sons is taken to some very dark places, and like the best fairy tales, the macabre is equally mixed with the magical. This is a world full of stories, all unfolding, interlocking and touching one another in different and profound ways. It's a bold creative vision, one that the often simplistic art direction of the game cannot always match. But despite some slight technical let downs, and its sometimes underwhelming aesthetics, Brothers is a rather beautiful tale of love and loss, of fables and fairy tales, and of family most of all.

The Verdict

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons tells a suite of painfully personal and unique stories set in a gorgeous world. It’s a unique twin-stick adventure brimming with imagination that shows in its art and dual-action puzzles. Though it has its fair share of control frustrations, the risky design decisions it does nail help make this game one of my most memorable of 2013.
