Bastion::SEE YOU AT PAX 2010:: by JenZee Bastion::SEE YOU AT PAX 2010:: by JenZee
Hey guys! Who's going to PAX2010?!?!? Here's the first promo illustration for the company I work for - Supergiant Games' first game-in-the-works, Bastion!

Our game just recently was chosen as one of the Pax-10 indie games, so if you're going to PAX, you should totally stop by our booth where we'll have a playable demo! Also, be sure to say HELLO ;D. I plan on just wearing yellow all weekend...like a power ranger O_O!!!! Also, we'll be handing out postcards with this art on it, so pick one up (if you like it ;_;!!!)

Check out a first look at our game over at Giant Bomb! They're going to have exclusives on us and follow our journey through the indie-game making process, so if you're curious, then stay tuned! Please forgive me if I make a fool of myself on camera -_-.

Hope you guys like it!

Im proud of you for finishing. What ending did you choose? Did you restore the world, or embrace the new one?

Aww thanks :) I chose to restore the world, my brother chose the new one, though. It's just heart breaking that you have to chose between Zia and Zulf's happiness. It's was a gut-wrenching ending but tragically beautiful at the same time. You guys did an amazing job at it.

Beautiful work.

You may not know this, maybe you do... But games like Bastion are used in some hospitals to help kids cope with pain and suffering. Never let anybody tell you they're worthless, lol, because they can really make a difference. They've helped my little bro through surgeries, and lots of other kids.

I just bought Bastion the other day during Steam's crazy Summer Sale. I can't believe it has taken me so long to play. What an AMAZINGLY beautiful game. Your artwork is stunning. Such a beautifully twisted style, like something out of a dream! The colors, the atmosphere! It gives me chills. Please keep up the gorgeous work.

Oh my god... (And I'm not one who usually says that.)
You helped with the creation of Bastion. You made artwork for Bastion. YOU!
(I'm talking to a celebrity here. Quick! Say something witty! Ehm..)
Hi! :3
(Yes, that was brilliant.. *rolls eyes*)
Anyway, all idiocy aside, I just want to tell how much I love Bastion. I've played it for 10 minutes now - I've actually known it for quite a while, saw some walkthroughs, artwork and heard some music - and it's just amazing. The feeling of the game is wonderful. The comments by the narrator are spot on. And the art is just amazing! I'm a beginning watercolourist and I've gotten quite a bit of inspiration. I might just start of with something simple. :)

I saw the quicklook of it on GB quite a while back, it looks as awesome as it did then as it does now. Do you do the concept art / character design / environmental work? As in, do you work closely with the team on the art direction and stuff or do you just hang back and do the promotional material?

Either way, really cool! This is exactly the kickass and lively world I walked away from that game with.

Hi! I'm so glad you like what you've been seeing of Bastion :). Hopefully we can only continue to improve it in terms of both looks and gameplay :).

Yeah I work *extremely* close to the team ;D. I am the only artist ("Senior Artist" XD... makes me sound old) outside of a couple contract artists (our 3D artist and animator). I do all the environmental work, and most of the monster concept art. There are a couple things that were done by other contract artists before I joined the team - for example I am not completely responsible for the character concept though I iterated heavily on it. He retains some design elements from another artist who worked on his concept before me :).

Oh wow! That's great! You are an instant watch-add then! I love the giant bomb crew. They said on a bombcast some time ago they might be coming in and trying to follow the development of Bastion? GB is friends with Greg Kassavin (I think that's his name)

Do you know if they have done any of that and might be withholding some vids till they're done...?! Even if they don't do the inside-look I'll definitely be getting the game when it comes out.

(It's so ironic that when I first saw this I thought "huh... this guy hasnt really done anything unusual with the art style from that game.." and was totally uninterested then I realized "OH GOD! I FEEL AWFUL NOW! THIS GUY WORKS WITH THE FRICKEN TEAM ITSELF!")
