Neither Pyre nor Transistor really grabbed me the way Bastion did, but they're both incredibly memorable games. The art, music and setting are all so strong and unique that the games stand out even if I don't love playing them. I honestly didn't enjoy the core loop of Pyre (talk to a bunch of people, move around the map, play some rites) very much, but there were a couple of story beats that I thought were super strong. The match where Oralech shows up and the Voice abandons you, leaving you to play the rites in silence is one of the coolest things I've played in years.

Heck, I think I'm gonna listen to the soundtrack now. It's so good. But ugh, that Picardy third at the end of In the Flame - Darren, you should know better. >:[
