Bastion Earns Top Accolades from Paste, TIME Magazine

Posted by Greg Kasavin on December 8, 2011

It’s that time of year when game critics look back on the past 12 months and single out those titles that had the greatest impact. We’re very happy to see Bastion showing up on some of their lists. To give a couple of recent examples:

TIME Magazine named Bastion one of the Top 10 Video Games of 2011.

Paste Magazine ranked Bastion as the number one Best Game of 2011.

To put it in perspective, some of our favorite games of the year haven’t made these lists at all. We feel humbled and all the more honored when we look at the titles we’re stacked against.

When we were working on Bastion, we wanted it to be the sort of game that could leave a lasting, positive impression on players, for the experience to stick with people long after they moved on to other games. It’s really rewarding to see that the game has continued to stand out to critics such as these even after the onslaught of high-quality titles released this fall.

    I can't begin to tell you how much I loved your game. Jen, Gavin, Logan, Andrew, Greg, Amir and Darren, your work has touched me so much, I can't explain it. You made me move on. Abandon the past. Abolish reconstruction. Value the people who contested you for the choices you made in the past. I can't thank you enough. You guys are awesome. Keep doing what you're doing. You're going the right way.
