Supergiant Games' Amir Rao talks about the challenges of porting Bastion

Bastion developer Supergiant Games faced a number of technical and design challenges when porting its award-winning action-RPG between three different platforms, according to a DICE keynote from studio director Amir Rao. Bastion was ported from its initial home on Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade platform to PCs, then to smartphones and tablets later — a decision that was primarily made to get Supergiant's feet wet with different types of gaming interfaces. The jump to PCs, a platform which many Supergiant employees are very familiar with, was less tricky than the move to touch-based devices. Ultimately, the studio decided not to dumb down Bastion for touch devices, and offer players a variety of control options — even ones that the development team wasn't a big fan of. You can watch Rao's...

Bastion comes to iPhone and iPod touch with universal app update

Supergiant Games' action role-playing game Bastion is now available on smaller screens thanks to the iOS version's latest update. With the release of version 1.1, Bastion now supports newer versions of the iPhone and iPod touch, making the previously iPad-only game a universal app. Bastion now supports Apple's iPhone 4S, fifth generation iPod touch and iPhone 5 — including that device's larger 4" display. The game does not run on previous versions of the iPhone and iPod touch for technical reasons, Supergiant Games says. "Bastion also plays great on the recently released iPad mini and 4th generation iPad," the developer writes on its website. "The iPad mini's smaller form factor turns out to be a very comfortable fit if you prefer the Classic Controls setting, and the game runs...

'Far Cry 3's' pirate king is 'armageddon'

In Far Cry 3's latest Island Survival Guide we get a look at the army of "privateer" pirates that run the island's drug and human trafficking operations and the man behind those mercenaries. We also get to see a surprising mix of animals maul the game's protagonist. Vaas Montenegro may be Far Cry 3's chief antagonist, but he's not the only threat to Jason Brody in the game. The island is also swarming with a mercenary army. EX-CIA operative Agent Huntley explains that their head honcho, Hoyt Volker, spends much of his time on the South Island. Taking Volker out will mean a parachute drop into extremely unfriendly territory. When we spoke with lead game designer Jamie Keen earlier this year, he explained that players will likely want to recapture territories spread across the...
