One of the best looking games ever made. Found the gameplay quite repetitive but I'd pay ฃ5 for it no problem just for those beautiful visuals...

I thought the sound track was one of the best I've ever heard, especially from an Indy.

Sorry Sam. I almost missed it too. I checked in on Steam and saw the Batman deal and then the very next tab was the ad for Bastion. But it was a midweek deal that was ending. Don't fret, I missed the sale for Bastion before this one, and waited. It'll come around again!

I will say that after only getting to play a small bit at a friends house, I was not really prepared for how great of a soundtrack this game has.

One of my top three favorites from the soundtrack for sure.

Nice. Is the rest of the OST worth checking out?
