Let me give you a statement which has all my favorite elements of a video game. Bastion is a 3rd person action role playing arcade style hack and slash game. What's more? Fantastic graphics, a dynamic narrator who literally narrates everything as you do it and a very awesome soundtrack.
Bastion is a charming-looking game with cute looking manga style characters which are positioned in a sad sad world where all has gone wrong, as you can see from the screen shots below.The visual style of the game is very different from anything I've ever played before as your world literally appears in front of you tile by tile as you walk further, revealing a lot of interesting backgrounds and environment designs.
In Bastion, you play the story of a silent protagonist called "The Kid". The Kid has slept right through the Calamity, a catastrophic event that has destroyed his land of Caelondia and its surrounding areas. You awaken as "the Kid," and your mission is to restore the Bastion. To do so, you need to go into levels and collect shards, while unraveling more truths about the Calamity and your life.
