Bastion Looks Set for August 16th Date


If the Steam page is to be believed then SuperGiant's esoteric dungeon-crawler is set to arrive on 16th of August (SuperGiant just confirmed this to us over email.) I am honestly expecting this to be one of the games of the year: it's a beautiful blend of compelling, click hack 'n' slash action with artful indie sensibility. What the screens and talk of whacking monsters doesn't quite get across is how exquisitely the world is delivered as it drops into place ahead of you, a process that is oddly dreamlike, especially when framed against the hard-boiled, wise-cracking voiceover. Anyway, I am sure we'll ramble about this extensively when it arrives on our Windows boxes.
