If you played Bas­tion or Tran­sis­tor, then you know the im­pec­ca­ble pedi­gree of Su­per­giant Games, which means you prob­a­bly ought to go ahead and grab Pyre, the stu­dio’s lat­est cre­ation. It’s a role­play­ing game that puts you in con­trol of a group of ex­iles, who must bat­tle in spe­cial­ized rit­u­als to try and re­claim their glory. From there, Pyre seems unique. The bat­tles play out like a com­bat­cen­tric team sport, al­most like a tweak on foot­ball, and if you lose, there’s no restart­ing the match. In­stead, the story branches and their jour­ney con­tin­ues be­yond that dis­ap­point­ment. Pair in the kind of daz­zling pre­sen­ta­tion we ex­pect from the stu­dio, and Pyre looks like an­other win­ner.
