Posted by Greg Kasavin on November 30, 2011

We’re very happy to announce that our debut title racked up six nominations in the 2011 Inside Gaming Awards! We really appreciate the recognition that Bastion received here — we’re the only independent game and the only non-sequel to have cracked the Game of the Year nominees list, where it feels like we’re among giants. The awards will be taking place on the evening of December 9, and Machinima.com will be live-streaming the event, so keep your fingers crossed for us.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Posted by Greg Kasavin on November 24, 2011

Today is Thanksgiving Day here in the United States, so we’re feeling right grateful for how the past couple of years have panned out since Supergiant first started, and for our families and friends who supported us along the way. Here’s a moment from Bastion to mark the occasion! (Click for the hi-res version.)

Just as important, we’re grateful to all of you who picked up Bastion this year and got us to this point, and for all your thoughtful emails, blog posts, notes, really everything you’ve done to give us your feedback.

I like to say that the one thing all seven of us at Supergiant have in common is that we’ve loved playing games all our lives. If you’re a long-time game player then you know how frustrating it can be to see real-world pressures and cynicism creep into the game industry from time to time… games are supposed to be a retreat from all that. It’s all the more reason why we’re grateful for what we’ve got, happy to have made something that’s left a strong impression on many of you, and lucky to be in a position to be able to try and do it again (and, with any luck, again and again after that). We live in interesting times, but then we also live in times when for a few bucks and a few minutes you can have access to a whole bunch of wonderful gaming experiences (i.e., this year’s Steam sale, which Bastion is a small part of). So as Rucks would say, it ain’t all bad. Happy holidays. […]
