Bastion, the overhead action-RPG that won massive critical acclaim when it debuted in 2011, has now become playable on the Playstation 4 — at least in North America. It has yet to reach European markets, but in the States it’s now available for the price of $14.99 (or one buck cheaper with Playstation Plus).
Supergiant’s creative director, Greg Kasavin, has written his thoughts on the development of Bastion and how the game has taken off in a new blog post on Playstation’s official blog.
“It was always difficult to describe Bastion while the game was in development. We designed the game in an organic way, little by little, listening to what it needed most and building whatever that was next, until we felt that we were done. It didn’t start with an elevator pitch for what would make the next big blockbuster. After all, one of the nice things about being a small independent studio is you can focus all your energies on making the game you really want to make, and with any luck, you can discover much of that during the process. … It feels great having made a game we feel has stood the test of time, as the first version of Bastion launched almost four years ago.”
A Vita port of the game is also planned, but still has not reached completion.
