Our accessibility experts are yet to assess Bastion. If you'd like to suggest accessibility features we should record for Bastion, let us know on Twitter or via email.Bastion is an action role playing game, where you explore a series of floating, fantasy-themed levels. What starts as a familiar exploration quickly becomes an engaging and interesting game. This change is driven by a mysterious and often hilarious narrator, who offers witty commentary and insights into game play. This provides a unique way to engage with the game's silent hero, as he journeys through his own history.
