Supergiant’s third game is finally here, and it’s… a sports game? In Pyre, you lead a band of exiles competing in a mystical tournament to win their freedom from the beautiful but dangerous Downside. Through a visual-novel-like RPG story you’ll form bonds with your tribe of exiles, then put them to the test in exceptional 3-on-3 sports-like “rites”.
Transistor, Supergiant’s last game, was The Short Game’s Game of the Year for 2014. Pyre measures up to, and in some ways exceeds, that high bar. We discuss the world building and lore, the artistry, and of course, the MONSTER DUNKS.
