Go to hell and back with Supergiant's Hades

The Games Awards just let loose a trailer for Supergiant's next title. Bearing a strong resemblance to both Bastion and Transistor, Hades is a new action game where death is only the beginning. The details were vague, but I like the art sty...

The prose of Pyre's consequences

I can’t look at the night sky and not think of Pyre. Stars are a fundamental part of the game’s narrative. Not only do they guide your way, they act as a sign of hope. The cosmos lights many paths forward, and in Pyre, looking u...

Rich Meister's personal picks for Game of the Year 2017

2017 has been one hell of a year for games. While the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One continue to hit their software strides, the Switch is bringing Nintendo back to its glory days. PC gaming remains stronger than ever and I can't think of a yea...

Pyre has a challenging new campaign mode

Pyre players looking for an excuse to undertake another mystical adventure are getting exactly that with an update out now on Steam and coming soon to PlayStation 4. The update, "True Nightwing," introduces a new mode "designed to enhance p...

Pyre's fictional language has real linguistic roots

Pyre is the best game about strange rituals and fantasy sports ever. Sure, it's not exactly the most crowded market, but I can't get over how cool Supergiant's latest game is. It's full of interesting characters with solid writing, astoundi...

Live Show: Pyre

Allow me to start this post by being completely honest with all of you. I have NEVER played a Supergiant Games title. Not Bastion, not Transistor, nada. I know, shame on me, but I could just never find the time to play them when they were r...

Review: Pyre

Adventure stories sprinkled with apocalyptic hope, enveloped in beautiful art and music with an innovative gameplay element...a recipe that Supergiant Games is known for cooking, and its third game Pyre is no exception. Don’t get me w...

Supergiant's wild new action-RPG Pyre is out next week

I'm not sure that folks really get what Pyre is going for (speaking of: hey, here's an informative launch trailer to help out), but that might not be such a big deal after all. Supergiant Games has won over plenty of people with Bastion an...

Pyre is like a mystical version of NBA Jam and I love it

While I’ve known about Pyre for roughly a year now (having seen it twice at PAX East), I never got the chance to sit down and play the game. Since I’m a fan of Supergiant’s previous works, I just kind of figured it would b...

Supergiant Games' Pyre hits PC and PS4 on July 25

For some of you (myself certainly included), just knowing that Bastion and Transistor studio Supergiant Games is behind Pyre is reason enough to expect good things. It's a role-playing game about exiles bound to a "mystical purgatory," for ...

Review: Bastion (Xbox One)

Supergiant Games’ breakout title Bastion gained critical acclaim in 2011 for its compelling storytelling mechanics and beautiful art, setting the bar high for indie downloadable titles of the day. A little over 5 years later, it com...

Transistor now available on the Apple TV

The Apple TV hasn't exactly set the world of gaming on fire, but with the recent release of Transistor to the platform, I'm officially more interested in it than ever. Like 1% interested, but still. This version of the game has been designe...

Bastion on PS4 is still great, but not worth a double dip

If you pinned me to the ground, demanding a list of the Xbox 360’s best games, I can promise you Bastion would fall out of my terrified lips. I would also be very confused throughout the whole exchange, but as long as you let m...

Check out a homemade version of the sword from Transistor

After a long, long wait Transistor is finally here on the PC and PS4 platforms, and more than a few people have started to celebrate the launch. One such fan is oyasumuidesu, who is seen showing off the blade wielded by the heroin...

The old world European electronic noir of Transistor

As much as Jen Zee's mood paintings and art catalyzed what would become Transistor early on, so too did Darren Korb's music. The soundtrack is an important part of Transistor and while I'd like to be able to yell at you to go freely listen ...

Transistor's sword was a briefcase at one point

Parts I and II of this series have touched on various elements of Transistor's design, but not one of its most striking facets, the artistry that immediately arrested many of us when Transistor was announced. We also sat down with Jen Zee a...
