Supergiant Games’ Bastion was a favorite of mine in 2012. I loved the art, music and integration of a narrator/commentator; It was a fantastic mix of style and substance. I was equally impressed by Bastion’s action and mechanics which invited comparisons to titles from the 16-bit era. After Bastion, I was ready to give whatever Supergiant Games’ next game a chance.
