Bastion and Transistor are complicated games with emotional depth. Supergiant Games’ latest, Pyre, follows its predecessors—this time with a focus on existential questions of freedom, religion and dogs with mustaches. Accompanying the games are equally as complex and gorgeously arranged music by composer Darren…
Pyre, the new game from the creators of Bastion and Transistor, is full of difficult choices. This, however, is easily the roughest. What will you do?
Pyre is a sports game about starting a revolution. In a worse game, that would be a joke, but Pyre takes both its sports and its politics seriously and combines them in an unexpectedly compelling way.
Pyre, the next game from the creators of Bastion and Transistor, is coming to PC and PS4 on July 25. It’s got cool art and a unique battle system that lets you choose from a variety of characters. Our own Stephen Totilo got to play it last year, and he described it as a “sort of mystical sports RPG.”
After making two terrific action RPGs, the people behind Bastion and Transistor are throwing a curveball with their new game Pyre. Now they’re making a party-based RPG in which the battles play out like three-on-three sports competitions. You’ll see how that works in the video above, as Supergiant developer Greg…
It’s been a long while since I’ve found myself humming a song with an Old Western influence. But ever since I finished Bastion a few weeks ago, and the Calamity came and wiped almost all of humanity away, every so often I’ll start vocalizing a sorrowful tune about building walls and awaiting their fall.
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." Read it at Gamasutra.
Transistor's 'Red' and 'the Kid' from Bastion, hand in hand. Jen Zee, the art director of Supergiant Games, celebrated the launch of their second game, Transistor with this adorable piece, where the main characters from the two games join forces.
Transistor came out today, and it's pretty great. But you know what's even better? An original soundtrack posted in full on YouTube, you say?
"Jesus, how much longer is this?" I texted my friend, putting down the PlayStation 4 controller to pause Transistor.
Transistor, a new game from Supergiant Games, the creators of Bastion, will make its debut on the PlayStation 4 next year.
If you liked 2010’s excellent, emotional action RPG Bastion, then listen to Amir Rao—co-founder of dev studio Supergiant Games—talk about the art of level design on the Critical Path Project.
Transistor, the next game from the people who made Bastion, will have some sort of Dark Souls-styled multiplayer, director Greg Kasavin tells Rock Paper Shotgun. "Something we’re more interested in is a sense of feeling connected to other people who are playing in a subtle way... You can still have your personal…
Transistor—Supergiant Games' latest project since their incredibly compelling Bastion—is a sexy game. Not because there's any actual sex (or at least none that I know of!). And not because of any of the other traditional definitions of the word. This isn't a typical kind of sexiness where short skirts and muscular men…
There were a lot of big games at PAX East last weekend—Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed IV, The Last of Us—but the biggest lines were for Transistor, the newest action-RPG from the makers of Bastion.
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.
One of the neat things about Dota 2 is that you can download "Announcer Packs" that change the voice of the in-game announcer to any of a number of other characters.
Jen Zee works at Supergiant Games. A small indie team, Jen is art director (and part-time badass cosplayer), meaning she's the main one to thank for the amazing colours and vibrant world of Bastion, one of the best-looking video games in recent memory.
