Pyre: Bastion Devs Announce New RPG For 2017

Supergiant Games, the folks behind Bastion and Transistor, today announced their third game – Pyre [official site]. They call it a “party-based RPG”, telling a story about a group of exiles trying to complete tasks that might just let them be absolved and return home. Pyre is due in 2017 and SuperGiant don’t have too much to say about it right now, but have a gander at this here pretty announcement trailer:

Supergiant explain in today’s announcement:

“Pyre once again showcases our team’s commitment to rich atmospheric presentation and storytelling, along with a distinctive gameplay blend that combines expressive decision-making on the world map with fast, action-packed confrontations against rival groups of exiles whose own freedom is at stake. We want to create a large cast of characters you can grow close to as you travel together across a strange and wondrous land.

“The Story So Far: At the beginning of the game, your luck has almost run out when several masked wanderers find you and revive you from the brink. With your help, they seek to learn the truth about the Rites, a secretive competition through which the worthiest exiles can return home, absolved of their transgressions. As you journey across the Downside in the wanderers’ custom blackwagon, you’ll meet a variety of characters of all shapes and sizes, and learn what’s in store for each of them should they prevail in the Rites. Your actions will determine who returns to glory, and who remains in exile to the end of their days.”

That’s basically all they have to say right now, but they’re showing it at PAX East this week, which will be the grand reveal.

I don’t know what’s up with that song, though. It sounds like the opening credits to a cartoon I’d have reluctantly watched in the ’80s while waiting for an actually good one. The sort of cartoon parents would concede “had a positive message”. That’s the same musicman as Bastion and Transistor though, Darren Korb.
