Bastion, the isometric action-RPG that’s narrated by a badass old black man (actually, it’s actor Logan Cunningham), has been released on Steam for $15, just a few weeks after its XBLA release. Supergiant has also put out the game’s OST, which is $10.

The isometric action-RPG Bastion has gone up on XBLA, as part of Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade promotion. The first things you’ll notice about Bastion are Jen Zee‘s lush artwork and the narration, which is dynamic and used not only to develop the game’s story but to explain your actions in real-time as you play. According to the FAQ, the interaction focuses on “finesse” in combat and “rich” customization of stats, skills, and weaponry. The way the game handles difficulty is interesting, too – players can invoke idols to raise the challenge of certain aspects of the game (like enemy damage), in exchange for more experience points gained.

A PC port of the game is planned that is slated for later this year.

Price: $15
