SoundRadar Episode 7 - Bastion with Supergiant Games

The creative director, composer and voice actor swing by to talk Bastion

The award-winning indie game Bastion has been on our radar since it was showcased at PAX in 2010. Supergiant Games is comprised of a small team of developers who left their big corporate jobs behind and decided to devote all their attention, love and time to Bastion. Their efforts paid off, as Bastion has gone on to sell more than 500,000 copies and has won more than 100 awards.

One of the game's standout features (other than the gorgeous visuals) is the eclectic soundtrack, composed by Darren Korb. The soundtrack can be purchased digitally or if you prefer a hard copy, check out the store at Supergiant Games' website. We have several codes to giveaway so tune in for a chance to win!


The Host and Guests

The Content

Former Editor-in-chief at GameSpot Greg Kasavin is finally living his childhood dream of creating, designing, and writing his own videogame. Composer and audio director Darren Korb is still stunned by the reaction to his soundtrack, but it gave him the opportunity to stand next to Hulk Hogan at the Spike VGA awards. We learn that Logan was solely doing his friend a favor by taking on the role of Rucks, but it turns out that this project was all much bigger than they had all imagined. 

Note: There's something at the very end of the podcast....
