Recent Accolades for Pyre

Pyre met with some of the highest critical acclaim of any of our games at launch, and more recently, we've felt honored and humbled to see it earn its way into various Game of the Year discussions, such as these:

Nominated for Best PC Game, Best Art Direction, Best Story, and Most Innovative -- IGN Best of 2017
Game of the Year 2017 Editor's Spotlight Awards -- GameSpot
25 Best Games of the Year -- Slant Magazine
The 50 Best Games of 2017 -- Polygon
The Top 10 Games of the Year -- Gamasutra
The Best Video Game Music of 2017 -- Kotaku
The 10 Best Video Game Moments of 2017 -- Vulture
The 10 Best Games of 2017 -- Newshub
Top 5 Best PC Games of 2017 -- Future Game Releases
Nominated for Best Independent Game -- The Game Awards

We want to make games that stick with folks in a positive way long after they're finished playing, so we're grateful to see Pyre come up for consideration at the end of a year that's been positively brimming with outstanding games.

Onward!

Pyre's success also means we get to keep going as a small independent studio, and keep doing what we love. Our foremost goal with each game we make is for it to do well enough that we can stick together as a team, and push forward in our quest to keep making games that spark your imagination like the games you played as a kid. We're grateful to have another shot at creating something like that, and excited to delve into the new year as we figure it out. We hope you'll join us for whatever we come up with next!

Pyre now features full text translations in simplified Chinese, Russian, French, German, and Spanish! This is an automatic update for the Steam version. The PlayStation 4 version will be updated in early 2018.

We’re grateful to our players around the world for their patience and support on what we knew would be a much bigger and more complex translation project than we've done for our previous games. In addition to having a much larger word count than Bastion or Transistor, Pyre’s interactive narrative means there are hundreds of millions of possible content combinations to consider in the translation process.

We hope this new update means many more of you out there will be able to fully enjoy our latest adventure. Thank you for playing Pyre!

Since the launch of Pyre back in July, we've been taking stock of all the wonderful response and feedback from players around the world, as well as getting busy figuring out what's next! By way of saying thank-you to everyone who's supported the game, we're pleased to announce a free update and bonus soundtrack, available now on Steam! The update is also available on PlayStation 4.

Enjoy a new way to play the Campaign, and two hours of bonus music!

About the 'True Nightwing' Update

The centerpiece of our latest update is a new Campaign mode that's unlocked after you reach the end of the Campaign (if you've already finished the Campaign, it should be unlocked automatically).

Reminiscent of an 'Ironman' mode in other games, this new way to play really amps up the challenge, and emphasizes many of the unique aspects of Pyre's campaign -- notably in how the story has no 'Game-Over' state, and keeps moving forward, taking your choices and outcomes into account.

It's designed to enhance playing through the Campaign successive times, whether you want to visit your favorite characters again, or experience all the many millions of event combinations in a whole new way.

Some of the specific changes in this mode:

· Base difficulty same as Heightened.
· All Titan Stars unlocked, and some must be used.
· Enlightenment required to rank up re-scaled.
· Cannot load checkpoints or restart Rites.
· Book of Rites and White Lute fully unlocked.
· Slugmarket inventory fully unlocked.
· Feats of Glory introduced much sooner.
· Note: Once chosen, this setting cannot be changed.

Many of the early tutorials are skippable so you can get into the meat of the action more quickly, and develop brand-new strategies around how to outfit your exiles, and how to take on your many adversaries. Steam version: Complete the story in this mode, and earn a new Steam Achievement!

ALSO! Introducing the Pyre Original Soundtrack Bonus Album Set

In addition to the new mode, we're pleased to add more than two hours of extra music to the Pyre Original Soundtrack, in the form of two bonus albums.


The Lone Minstrel and the Gate Guardian have some more songs to share.

· Pyre: Original Soundtrack - The White Lute features acoustic versions of many of the signature tracks from the game (they're the versions you hear using the White Lute item in the wagon).

· Pyre: Original Soundtrack - The Black Mandolin features eight unique variations of the song 'Never to Return', for each of the different triumvirates you confront in the Rites!

If you purchased the soundtrack, you'll automatically receive these bonus albums as a free update. You can also stream them for free on our YouTube channel and other streaming services.

Pyre Merchandise in our Online Store!

In case you missed it, we're also now offering a Pyre T-shirt and 24" x 36" Poster in our online store! Follow the links for more info on each item.

Pyre: Original Soundtrack

Also available today is the Pyre Original Soundtrack, packed with close to two hours of music created for the game by our award-winning composer and audio director, Darren Korb.

The Pyre Original Soundtrack features close to two hours of music.

We’re pleased to offer a variety of free streaming options, or you can purchase the soundtrack either in digital format or in a lovely two-disc physical edition on CD. It's available at our online store.

Supergiant’s been around since 2009, and we’ve always said that we’re here to make games that spark your imagination like the games you played as a kid. We’re also here because we want to stick together as a team, to keep making games our way. We spent three years creating Pyre -- but really it's the culmination of the seven-plus years our studio has been around, and of a lifelong love of games for each of us. We really hope you enjoy it, and we’re excited to hear what you think.

On behalf of all 12 of us at Supergiant, thank you for your support,
and we hope your journey through the Downside proves enlightening!
