To mark the one year anniversary of the popular indie iOS title, you can grab Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP at a substantial discount.

The adventure is just $1.99, down from its usual $4.99, on the App Store. The sale is expected to run for 24 hours only.

Sword & Sworcery gained some notoriety during the peak of its popularity for including an auto-tweet feature; many gamers left this on, resulting in high-volume Twitter uses being swamped with messages.

That aside, the game has earned near universal praise for its story-telling, simple graphics, intuitive gameplay and cool iOS-specific mechanics. It has sold over 350,000 copies and won best handheld/mobile title at the GDC awards.

Thanks, Indie Game Magazine.
