Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a game about death. It is about how all of us will experience death at some point and quite often there is nothing we can do to stop its course. As the saying goes, death comes for us all. This game is perfect to get students talking about death and our own mortalities. Everyone goes through a period of their life where we feel invincible, but that facade shatters when someone we know and love ends up dying. All of a sudden, death is a reality and a very apparent part of our lives. This game, spoken in an entirely fabricated language, communicates to the players through body language. We physically see how the brothers support each other when dealing with regret, trauma, and PTSD. We feel what they feel. And by the end of the game the class may be ready to talk about death on a personal level rather than something that happens to strangers we read about in class.
