Swedish filmmaker Josef Fares received plenty of recognition and acclaim with last year's digital cooperative effort, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons .
The well-received game allowed developer Starbreeze to turn a profit and now, Fares says he's working on something new. In fact, despite all the innovation and originality we've seen in the industry over the years (especially in the downloadable/indie realm), the new project is just that: New.
Here's what Fares told Digital Spy in a recent interview:
"I'm moving on to the next thing. I have my next idea ready, it's super cool. It's very different. I can tell you this–if I tell you the idea now, you'd say, 'I haven't played something like this before'. I can't tell you more. But definitely something that hasn't been done before."
We always like to hear about future freshness in gaming, and Brothers was a definite winner. Of course, originality doesn't mean much if you can't execute; frankly, there have been plenty of new ideas out there that most people don't even know about. And they don't know about 'em because the games in which they existed sucked .
But Fares and Starbreeze know what they're doing, so we're hopeful.
