Brother is a short, cute and surreal little adventure puzzle game that's all about exploring and figuring things out, playable by anyone.

Artistically, I wanted to explore the ideas of brotherhood, barren landscapes and storytelling without words.

The original plan was to include no text at all, but I ended up caving and adding hints for people who get stuck. I think it was the right decision, resulting in fewer people quitting due to frustration.

It's a bit short, but sweet! I hope you have fun :)

very thought provoking...

it was a good game. i felt the puzzles varied way to much because of how to solve them, for some reason the water tank puzzle was overly dificult yet i figured out the rest without to much problem. (I'd change the hint on the red green blue test because the hint gave it all away without need for the guide)

i did like the button test inside the volcano, it was a good test of memory and ultimately knowing how to vary the buttons you pushed.

say you came up with tests that were more excruciating (in whatever sense the puzzle pertains to) the game would be longer, and more thought provoking.

all in all i wont complain, the game in itself was very fun!

Fun, easy

Helbereth is wrong.
The 5 platforms are not activated by the crystals- they are activated by rescuing the 5 brothers.

Anyway, 1st try and I finished it
good game =]

Broken.

The place with the 5 platforms that I assume are activated by the crystals in your possession didn't all work. Even though I had all 5 crystals, only 3 of them activated.

Otherwise a decent game. Fix the code, though.

Hey Helbereth,

False assumption. The crystals activate the cage on the far left of the lava section. The platforms are activated by rescuing 5 brothers.
