The endings of Bastion (Spoilers) and how it affects the sequel

#1 Edited by SPeedy26 (38 posts) -

I've got to say I love how Bastion ended itself and how it is in a unique position of releasing 2 games. Bastion: Restoration and Bastion: Evacuation.

Evacuation would be the game that would act as Bastion 2 following the continuing adventures of the Kid, Zia, Rucks, and Zulf as they continue searching for new life in their current Apocalyptic world

Restoration would be set in an alternate-like universe where then Kid restarted the world and it stopping the calamity. Allowing us take a closer look at Caelondia and it's people. I would see this game as kind of a RTSish like game with you in control of one hero or something, or maybe a multilayer focused game with the Caelondian's vs the Ura with a dota/ tower defense-like game play system where you control 1 person. and Rucks could say "All units (til the day I die mother fuckers)"

sry would detail this more but I'm pretty tired right now. tell me what ya think tho. I also know the New game plus makes Restoration Cannon but I like the idea of the world being split into 2 universes.

Edit: sry I meant Evacuation is Cannon (love that ending and the move on felling it gives) not Restoration. sry half sleep ^^

I played the game to both endings and I'm pretty sure that they made the point of that if you restore the same events play out. So evacuation would ultimately be the ending for the sequel.

I hope they don't make a sequel.

I honestly don't see that team probably even wanting to make a sequel. 
 
 
Though I'm gonna say that, if it does happen and it is a direct sequel, it'll be evacuation.

Restoration doesn't need a sequel. That's the beauty of it. In New Game+ the narrator has a few moments of deja vu, suggesting that despite their best efforts, the survivors forget the lessons they learned and are unable to stop the Calamity from repeating itself.

Neither ending really did all that much, so New Game+ felt pointless in a lot of ways.

Really? I loved how NG+ was tied into the story and I had a great time plaing through to see the other ending.
