By Supergiant Games July 20th, 2011

It's our pleasure to announce that Bastion is now available on Xbox LIVE, marking the beginning of this year's Summer of Arcade. Visit the Bastion page on to download the game, or you can do it the old-fashioned way straight from the console.

Dozens of reviews are flooding in from all around the world. Here's a taste of what game critics are saying about the full experience:

"Supergiant Games' debut effort isn't just good – it's a must-play." - Game Informer (9.25 / 10)

"Bastion isn't just one of the year's best titles. It's also one of the best stories you'll see in an indie game." - GamePro (5 / 5)

"This game is amazing and you owe it to yourself to download it." - (9.0 / 10)

"It's frightening to think how much the human voice has done to distance Bastion from the crowd." - Edge (9 / 10)

"The entire game drips with passionate artistry from the gorgeous watercolor aesthetics to the stirring soundtrack." - Wired (9 / 10)

"Bastion...wishes to persist, as a living artwork that may be revisited forever." - Kill Screen (9 / 10)
