Bastion Review




Somewhere in the mists of the Calamity’s aftermath, the Kid wakes to his world. His family, friends, and all he’s ever known in Caelondia are gone, turned to dust—all but his hammer. He leaves his home, striking out along a long-gone road, revisiting the crumbling ruins of shops long gone. This was his life, as one of the fortunate few the Calamity spared, fighting through hordes of Squirts and Windbags, fighting to survive, every day the same struggle.
Then he found the Bastion.
He found me.
He saw our home, our ruins, our leftovers.
He began to start anew.
The Kid travelled across the city, through alleys and bogs, mines and forests, scouring the land for cores, shards of power to keep our humble little bastion afloat. Where he went, he was met with resistance; the ones the Calamity hadn’t touched, savage, cruel beasts. He took them all on, and he took them all down, mastering everything from hammers to flamethrowers, pikes to machetes. And all the while, our home grew, piece by piece. The Kid found more survivors, bringing them back to the bastion, making friends out of strangers. He went through more hardships than most Caelondians go through in a lifetime, and every time he came out even stronger than he went in.
Even in the end, faced with a choice that would kill lesser men, he pushed on, for the greater good. For the Bastion's wellbeing.

For us.
