Bastion Sells 500,000 Copies And Wins Over 60 Awards

Rizwan Anwer

The Kid has achieved the unimaginable, after Minecraft Supergiant Games is the next name in the indie industry to make a name for itself. While Minecraft has sold millions while being a PC exclusive and Bastion found its way on the XBOX LIVE Marketplace and Steam it is still quite an accomplishment for an indie game.

Bastion recently made it's way to the Chrome store where it is now available for purchase and is playable straight off your Google Chrome Web browser just like Angry Birds.

Bastion is an amazing game unlike any other, it offers a bright, colorful world in chaos and with tons of RPG elements, a fantastic narration and lots of end game content to keep buyers of the game satisfied for hours on end and with the recent release of the new DLC titled "Strangers Dream" which is free on Steam and for 80 MSP on the XBOX LIVE Marketplace.

Supergiant Games the makers of Bastion are proud to report that their game has made a name for itself in more ways than one. First the game broke half a million sales including steam and XBOX LIVE buyers of the game who helped them reach this number and then the game has proudly won over 60 awards for the game alone, a full list of awards courtesy of the source is available below:
