      These Forums are closing!   10/04/2019

      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

Passing the ICO Torch

Recommended Posts

I just caught a post on indiegames.com about this small Brazilian game studio's current IGF submission.

Their title "Toren" seems to have much of the "spiritual successor to ICO" vibe that "White Birch" was also going for.

I'm not sure why I'm bringing this up other than the fact that I just love these types of games, and it's always awesome to see new entries in the genre.

"Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons" is another recent one, with a similar mentality and gameplay, great environments, and a somber tone.
