Despite some a programmer switch, The Other Brothers continues to be a game that has us jumping up and down in anticipation. And not just because of its look, as has been the case in the past. Newly released alpha footage of the title shows off a refreshingly quirky tone and a style of platforming that we're totally behind. If the words "whimsical" or "radical-some" pop into your head after viewing it, you're in good company.

The Other Brothers has been pitched to us as "a pixelated family fun adventure [game] of running, jumping, collecting, and racing against the clock," but with a twist. We talked with the game's original team earlier this year and have posted about the title several other times before, but we've never actually seen it in motion until this video hit the 'net.

The Other Brothers is due out this year.

  • anthony simmons went from "must have" to "is this a flash game?". i wont take it off my radar, but this vid makes me care a little less.

      wtf dude xD I think it looks Awesome! : D

        yes it does "look awesome", but it doesnt look like it plays awesome. dude is flying around at a ridiculous speed for a platformer. hit detection looks super sketchy. im just glad this is an alpha build, kinks can be worked out.

    Probably the art style, but something about this really reminds me of Junkyard on the Atari 7800. Curious to see how this turns out.

    I wanted to get this, but the guy humming with the beat in the trailer turned me off a little....I dunno why it just sounds bad, I know they were trying to pull off pixar charming/cute crap, which itself got old in 2006 or 2007, but still I dunno, I'll wait for some more footage, and please next time cut the pedophile humming in the background out.......

    Lots of negativity today, I think this game looks pretty dope. It's an unfinished, unreleased product and it still looks great. I can't wait to see what the finished product turns out like.

    I've been following this game since it was announced...but the gameplay seems beyond pointless. You jump...and run. As of now, it should be renamed, "The Other [Lame] Brothers.
