Warner Bros. Interactive has announced plans to publish the debut title from indie start-up Supergiant Games. An isometric fantasy RPG with hand painted environments, Bastion challenges you to rebuild a devastated world. Unfortunately, a hoard of mystical adversaries (including a zeppelin like creature known as a Scumbag) appear determined to thwart your efforts.
One of the more interesting features being promised is a dynamic audio narrative designed to respond specifically to your actions and decisions. According to creative director Greg Kasavin, the aim is to “hit players’ emotional chords in unexpected ways.” Newcomer Logan Cunningham will be providing the surprisingly contemporary voice of the narrator. Here’s hoping the narration doesn’t’ amount to 500 instances of “you have found a health pack”.
Bastion is coming to the XBLA in winter 2011, with a PC version to follow later in the year. Additional platforms haven’t been ruled out for 2012 and beyond.
