The game tells the story of two brothers: Naia and Naiee. The scene starts with Naiee, the younger one is seen paying respects to his mother’s tombstone. His mother died drowning at the sea while he remained unable to save her. His elder brother, Naia, appears and calls him to help him bring his ill father to the village’s doctor. However, upon reaching their house, their father told him that it was impossible for his condition to make it to the village, and the only thing that can save him is the water from the Tree of Life.
Determined to save their father, the two brothers set on a journey to find and bring back the “Water of Life.” But the journey won’t be easy; they need to face adversaries and must rely on another to survive. They must work together and fill each other’s weaknesses, and know what it really means to have a “brother.”
Brothers feature a third-person view where you can see the two brothers. Players must take note the each of the brothers has his own strength and weakness.
