Bastion Arrives by JenZee Bastion Arrives by JenZee
It's FINALLY here, guys! BASTION!!! I am so excited to announce that Bastion, the fruit of a small group of dedicated game devs' passionate labor is finally available on XBLA at this very moment :D!

Thank you for all your guys' support through my silent disappearances whilst toiling away on this project. At the very least, if you have the time I'd love for you guys to give the trial a go and see if you like it! Hint-hint - the trial is free ;D!

A little background: I had the fantastic opportunity to function as the Art Director and sole 2D artist on the team :D! For better or for worse, all environmental art, UI, textures, and many of the designs were created within the last year!

Thanks guys, and if you get the chance to play it, I genuinely hope you enjoy your journey ;D!

//Edit: Amazing! Thank you so much for the Daily Deviation <3! I'm floored to be receiving all the incredibly positive response to Bastion... You guys are amazing, and are huge inspirations and motivators for my work <3!

Wow this is so beautiful, I just finished playing the game and went looking for the source of its artwork.
What program did you use to make this? I'm sorry if it's written somewhere, but I couldn't find it.

One thing that impress me about our work are the colors. So powerful and alive, but they still blend nicely together. Thanks for sharing your work, it will inspire my color process on future drawings :)

Bastion has to be one of the most brilliant visual spectacles I've ever had the privilege to play through. Your work here is beyond wonder. Happy to say I just ordered a signed print of this from the Supergiant store. I look forward to seeing your signature and this artwork framed on my wall. :) Thank you!

I LOVE IT! Thank you so much for bastion, it was the most beautiful thing ive ever played. EVER. Reinforcing video games as a legit art form. WHATEVER you do in future I hope amounts to be half as good as this masterpiece, and I will be the first to throw money at it whatever that may be.
