Pyre, From Super Giant makers of Transistor and Bastion

I've debated going back and just failing all the rites on purpose and seeing how the game plays, because that concept just fascinates me (it doesn't feel like games telegraph well when you are supposed to fail vs. win, so having this just grabs my attention).

I really have to go back and play this on easy. I played it for a while when it came out, but I couldn't wrap my head around the controls for the basketball game, and didn't like playing that very much, so I kinda fell off.

Really wish they'd get this on Switch. I'd be way more likely to play it there.

I've also been considering revisiting this as I fell off just before my second liberation rite. The rites are fine, but it got a bit stale for me playing too much at a time. I tend to have a standing "warmup" game that I play before settling in to an hour or so of something deeper, maybe I should make Pyre that game for a while and gradually work through it.

The revival of this thread reminded me how awesome the music is, and now I’m listening to it on repeat.

Off topic, sorry.

Oh no, very much on topic. Darren Korb is a genius.

Pyre is on sale today for just a couple bucks. I picked it up!

Jeez, I am not very good at the game. Started out OK, but then after losing my 2nd Liberation Rite against Pamitha's sister (I could not figure out how to deal with the all flying team), I've been on quite a losing streak. I put on some Titan stars, which probably isn't helping, but I can't seem to get the hang of certain players.

If it’s too frustrating, I think you can bump down the difficulty of the game. Pretty sure I played on easy. Also, the love of the Rites, do NOT play with mouse and keyboard. This game was made for the controller (and I’m not big on controllers).
