    andycho7's Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (PC)

    [January 19, 2017 01:32:33 AM]
    I think I am now approximately half way through the game. Two brothers got into the dungeon with the help of the troll. Inside the dungeon, the puzzles are noticeably more difficult than the outside world. In one of the part, it requires the younger brother to open some sort of gate looking thing, while the older brother is hanging on the chain belt to get by some of the obstacles. One of the tricky part was when the two brothers had to jump sideways while hanging on the wall, to the other side. I was stuck for a good amount of time because I thought jumping sideways like that wouldn’t be possible. Later, I got to the part where I had to use the young brother to steal the key to save an old lady troll. After saving the old lady troll, the guard troll (who had the key) notices that there are intruders. I immediately thought I had to damage the guard troll somehow to defeat him. But instead, I just had to use a clever trick to put the guard troll back into the prison cell. Shortly after, I encountered another troll and defeated him with a similar trick as before.

    I am not a huge gamer, nor have played lot of games before in the past. However, the times when I did play some games, it most likely involved some sort of action, whether that is to damage, or to kill someone in the game. Even in other adventure games targeted for younger audience, such as Zelda, has some sort of action/violence associated with it, but I was not able to see any of that so far in this game. In my opinion, games like this would be great for kids. It is important to teach the right ethical manners when growing up and this game demonstrates that perfectly by not using any violence in the game (or at least not as violent as other T rated games).

    Since my last entry, the story of the game haven’t advanced much yet. I reached two major checkpoints: 1) An oversized dog that I thought would cause no harm to my character turned out to be an enemy that I needed to avoid. This dog can be avoided by having one of the brother to lure and distract the dog while the other brother moves on. 2) I met this giant troll looking creature and after seeing the dog earlier, I was expecting a boss fight of some sort. Turns out he’s a nice guy and he's helping the two brothers out along their way. I wasn’t able to spot any ethical related choice(s) during this session of game play.

    Just started this game. There are two main characters, younger brother and the older brother. A lady, who seems to be the mother of the two brothers, unfortunately drowns under water. At first, the controls were bit strange to me and I couldn't figure out how to get the moving platform to work because I initially thought I can only move the younger brother. I was stuck here for a good little while, until I realized that I can actually move the older brother too. Despite the initial confusion, I think the control is very well thought and clever how two characters can be controlled simultaneously with just one keyboard. I can easily imagine playing this game with another person.
    Just after the first cut scene, the two brothers start to take an old man who is sick (which I assume is their father). After taking their sick father to the doctor, doctor tells the brothers that their father needs some special medicine to cure the sickness and I believe that's what the entire game is about.
    As I was playing along, I noticed that the brothers made run into some challenges. First one I noticed was that the younger brother seems to have a trauma of water (because of his mother's death). Another one is, there's a guy around town that constantly blocks two brothers on their journey and making the brothers to go around on an alternative route. I'm not sure what the intent of this guy is or why he is blocking the two brothers' way, but I thought it wasn't very ethical of him to do that. Especially because the two brothers are on the journey to save their father. Speaking of unethical, there was a part where two brothers woke up the sleeping guy at the bridge by just pouring water over his face. While I think this was intended to make the gameplay more interesting, but in real life, this would be something unethical.
