Concept art: Pyre (2017; Supergiant Games)
This week's game is the third polished gem in the Supergiant Games roster.
After escaping from Hades last episode, this time I traverse the Downside in the high-fantasy visual novel–RPG–sports game Pyre.
It's an inventive and aesthetically stunning one-off game that's like nothing else I've played.
(There's a spoiler break half way through, so you can hear about it safely if you wanna play it yourself, or hear some late-game thoughts if you've played it already.)
