Google has been ramping ups its gaming presence steadily this year, with plans to make Chrome a viable gaming destination. Those efforts got a significant shot in the arm last night with the reveal of Bastion, formerly an XBLA/PC title, now playable in Google's browser.
The game's prologue can be installed and played for free, while it'll cost $14.99 to unlock the entire RPG experience. Note that gamepad support isn't included, otherwise it runs just like the original version did.
It's funny. When I reviewed Bastion I said that it felt more like a browser-based RPG rather than a full-fledged experience. A few people got really upset with me for saying that. Well ... enjoy your browser-based RPG, folks.
