If you’re looking for a fun Friday afternoon time sink, beautifully styled and narrated RPG Bastion is available as an in-Chrome web app.
From the Supergiant Games press release:
This latest version of Bastion is built to run right in your web browser, using Google’s new Native Client technology. This really is the full Bastion experience, featuring our highly acclaimed 1080p artwork, musical score, reactive narration, and play experience, all built to run fast and smooth just like our Xbox 360 and PC versions. And, much like those versions, you can play through the prologue for free. The full game can be unlocked for $14.99.
We took it for a spin and it’s as gorgeous, immersive, and well narrated as the trailer video above would lead you to believe. The prologue is great and the level of detail, considering it’s rendered entirely in HTML 5 and played within a browser, is astounding–we’d be lying if buying the full version of the game wasn’t in our immediate future.
