Transistor developer Amir Rao just published an interesting breakdown of all the work that went into the game's unique "functions" system. I found the inspiration that Supergiant pulled from Magic: The Gathering particularly neat. And the fact that they deliberately eschewed "power-leveling."

The Folks Behind Bastion Are Making A Sci-Fi RPG. And It Looks…

If you ask me, Supergiant Games' Bastion was one of the best games to come out in the last few years. So, a new game from that indie dev studio is great news. » 3/19/13 12:13pm 3/19/13 12:13pm

Bastion snuck up on me—I had heard a lot of friends and fellow critics hyping it after seeing it at PAX East and GDC, but I didn't actually play it until it was released. For the first hour or so, I wasn't sold, but as the story snowballed and the levels stretched out, I fell increasingly under its spell. » 12/28/11 8:00pm 12/28/11 8:00pm
