As we prepare to release Bastion on Xbox LIVE Arcade this summer, one of the details we’ve worked out is our box art. OK, so the game doesn’t technically come in a box but you’ll still be seeing this on the XBLA marketplace:
What say you? Rather than try and capture the intense white-knuckle action of fighting a couple of Scumbags while the ground beneath your feet is falling away, we figured we’d go for something a little more in line with the tone and style of the game. Hope you like it.
Additionally, last week we got word from the ESRB about our official content rating, and it is:
E10+ means the game is suitable for ages 10 and up, at least according to the standards here in North America where. It felt good getting a content rating that reflected our desire for Bastion to be the sort of game that could be played and enjoyed by people of various ages… as opposed to just the 17-to-34-year-old male, the preferred target of most retail games. While Bastion was not designed specifically for younger players, it is meant to be an age-agnostic sort of game. If you know how to use a game controller and how to read basic onscreen prompts, the game will take care of you.
Let us know if you have questions about our content ratings in other territories.
