Bastion is an original action role-playing game set in a lush imaginative world, in which players must create and fight for civilization's last refuge as a mysterious narrator marks their every move.

Featuring a unique interactive narrative style and handpainted environments in dazzling full-HD, Bastion challenges players to build a new world from the broken remnants of the past.

The goal of the game is to construct a safe haven in the wake of the Calamity, a cataclysmic event that shattered the world into a series of floating islands. As players journey into the wild unknown in search of survivors and supplies, they will confront strange beasts, forge an array of customizable weapons, and gain new powers from specially-brewed spirits. The entire play experience of Bastion is dynamically narrated, gradually revealing a rich backstory as the narrator reacts to the player's actions in real time.

"Our goal with Bastion is to hit players' emotional chords in unexpected ways, in addition to delivering highly responsive gameplay that rewards finesse and experimentation," said game industry veteran Greg Kasavin, Supergiant Games' Creative Director. "We're pushing to make it so that players become absorbed in the game's distinctive setting and narrative tone from the first moments."
