Featuring a unique interactive narrative style and imaginative hand-painted environments, Bastion challenges you to build a new world from the broken remnants of the past.
I got this with the Humble Indie Bundle V and had no idea how amazing it was until I got into playing it.
An incredible story set in an unique environment and bursting was creativity in every corner. This is a game that doesn't slow down.
As for the gameplay, though, it was nice to have many weapons to vary the battling, but still the customization is way too advanced for the length of the game. I maybe only used 3-5% of all the available tools during my first time playing through. Some creatures like that dragon that popped up under you were annoying and hard to defeat.
But all together this was an amazing piece of art that immersed my senses in its tale, including emotionally.

I don't know what makes this game so great, because the gameplay itself actually isn't very innovative or original. The artstyle, music, sounds and voice acting create a great atmosphere though, one of the greatest I have experienced so far. Definitely one of my favorites of 2011.
