Bastion is a fantasy game in a fantasy setting. There are the remnants of pagan religions, confused monsters, and a beautiful but broken country that exists in the sky. Yet, somehow it feels familiar. Almost like it’s somehow our story. The audio is such an important part of this puzzle. The smooth cool narrator tells the story while music plays. It sounds like Americana. I can’t help but feel like this game qualifies as American indie folk: a game that shines some light on what it means to be American.
