Like Limbo, and Braid before it, Bastion is a twee indie offering with an artsy-fartsy aesthetic and some bold ideas in the gameplay department. If it's slipped under your radar thus far, now's a good time to start paying some serious attention.
Bastion's big hook, its equivalent of rewinding time or grisly death animations, is dynamic narration. A fair-haired youth wakes on a floating piece of rock suspended in a mysterious void. As he opens his eyes, takes his first steps and wanders off into the unknown, his story is told by a mysterious disembodied voice. This voice is deep and rich, a real treat for the ears, describing every action - the drawing of a sword, collecting of an item, defeating of an enemy - as if it were written in the pages of some ancient tome."
