PAX West: It's Our 10-Year Anniversary!

By Greg Kasavin August 22nd, 2019

Somehow, 10 years have flown by since our studio co-founders, Amir Rao and Gavin Simon, left their jobs at Electronic Arts in Los Angeles, hunkered down in the living room of a house in San Jose, and started working on our first game, Bastion. Since then, we moved to San Francisco, and proceeded to create Transistor, Pyre, and most recently, Hades.

Our games have sold more than 10 million copies on more than 10 different platforms, and the success of each one made the next one possible. Though each of our games is quite different, they all share a common goal: to spark your imagination like the games you played as a kid. Through the years, we've stayed small, stayed independent, and stuck together as a team -- in fact, all seven of the original members of the Bastion team are all still here, working together in their respective roles. Above all, we've been extraordinarily lucky that our games have found such a big and supportive audience.

PAX West Celebration! At PAX West in Seattle, our team will be there to reflect on this milestone in our studio's history. We really hope you can join us! Here are some of the highlights to expect:

Special Events: We have a couple of incredible special events in store!

  • Supergiant in Concert: Experience a one-of-a-kind live performance celebrating 10 years of Supergiant Games, with songs from Bastion, Transistor, Pyre, and Hades!

    Featuring our composer and audio director, Darren Korb, longtime collaborator and vocalist Ashley Barrett, and the Supergiant Orchestra conducted by award-winning composer Austin Wintory. @8:30pm, Saturday Aug. 31, Main Theatre (aka Paramount Theatre)

Booth Location: We'll be at PAX all Labor Day weekend in booth #1515 -- the exact spot where we first debuted Bastion as part of the PAX 10, back in 2010.

What We're Bringing: This is the first time we'll have Hades playable at PAX!

  • We'll have many stations for you to come try the game and see how we're doing in Early Access.

  • We'll also have a 'High-Heat Challenge' demo station, where experienced players can win prizes if they can get far enough on a higher difficulty!

  • We'll have some brand-new merchandise on offer, such as our 10-Year Anniversary Poster featuring original artwork by our art director, Jen Zee, and a PAX-exclusive Hades T-shirt.

  • Our whole team will be there! Stop by and say hello.

From All of Us @ Supergiant Games, Thank You!!

Being able to create games on our own terms has been an extraordinary privilege. We look forward to many more years of making games together here; games that are worthy of your time, and that leave you with a lasting and positive impression. We really appreciate your support.
