Supergiant games promise a stellar soundtrack, unique visual asthetic, and satisfying top-down action; Pyre looks to deliver the same standard we have come to expect and more.
Pyre is a party based RPG game. Not much is known on gameplay at this time, but Supergiant's blog has revealed details on the actual story:
At the beginning of the game, your luck has almost run out when several masked wanderers find you and revive you from the brink. With your help, they seek to learn the truth about the Rites, a secretive competition through which the worthiest exiles can return home, absolved of their transgressions. As you journey across the Downside in the wanderers' custom blackwagon, you'll meet a variety of characters of all shapes and sizes, and learn what's in store for each of them should they prevail in the Rites. Your actions will determine who returns to glory, and who remains in exile to the end of their days.Aside from the unique look of Pyre, the standout feature from the trailer is the main theme. Transistor and Bastion both featured prominent soundtracks with tunes that stood out, and this title looks to promise more of the same quality.
The game boasts difficult choices, investment in rich characters, and arena style action. Given the success of Supergiant Games, this will be sure to be a game to keep on your wishlist.
