July 25th is the release date of Pyre. The new indie title from the makers of Bastion and Transistor. The crew and I got to go hands on with the game during PAX East 2017 and we all LOVED it!
The best way I can describe it is magic meets soccer. Two teams go head to head with three magical beans that they can control. One is fast, one’s in the middle and the last is a tank.
The goal is to score the ball in each other’s goals, but the problem is it isn’t that simple. Each player can cast spells and shadows to kill and slow down their opponent. It creates these fast paced matches that I’m sure the Twitch audience is going to enjoy. That’s just multiplayer. We didn’t even get a chance to try out the single player campaign.
The launch trailer just dropped. Be on the look out for the full release on Steam July 25th, 2017. I’m sure the crew and I are picking this one up! As a bonus, I’ve also included our interview with one of the Pyre developers from PAX East if you want to learn more about the game.
