Bastion takes a very unique approach to some tried and true gaming elements. It is stylish, artistic, atmospheric, and although the story may not make a whole lot of sense while you're going through it, thanks to its excellent soundtrack and interesting narration, it feels heavy.
In Bastion, you are "The Kid." The world has gone to heck due to an apocalyptic event dubbed "The Calamity." All those that once existed are now gone, save for a few key characters. Landscapes have been torn asunder. Creatures that used to exist peacefully are now hostile. Your task is to travel this desolate world in the sky and collect shards that will restore the Bastion, a place built for such an occasion, that has the power to restore the world to a previous time before the calamity occurred.
In Bastion, the action and game play reminds me a lot of Diablo. You collect choice new weapons and level up becoming stronger and with new perks each level. You can upgrade said weapons and use a distillery to provide further bonuses to be used as you try to rectify the wrongs caused by the calamity.
If you haven't already, pick up Bastion for the PC on Steam. If you can catch it on a deal, all the better. It's worth the investment, in my opinion.
