Here's A Quick, Exclusive Glimpse At A PAX 10 Selection

Expect to hear a lot more about Supergiant's Bastion in the weeks and months ahead.

Psst. Hey, kid. Want to see something you haven't seen before? Yeah, I know, we normally don't traffic in exclusives, but this one's something you'll want to keep an eye on.

(Oh, hey, get a larger version of the shot right here, cool?) 
That right there is a screenshot of Bastion, an action-RPG set for release in 2011 on PC and consoles by Supergiant Games. It's one of the selections for the PAX 10 this year. The PAX 10, in case you didn't know, is an annual collection of 10 independent games, whittled down from a stack of over 100 submissions by a rigorous selection process run by the Penny Arcade guys. Bastion is in pretty good company this year, alongside games like Altitude, Super Meat Boy, and Retro City Rampage.

All 10 of the selections will be shown at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle next weekend, but we'll have some information on Bastion in the days before the show that you'll almost certainly be interested in seeing. After that, we'll spend some time during September 9's Big Live Live Show: Live with the team currently working on the game to find out how their PAX debut went and what lies ahead as they continue building Bastion.

Do not miss it.
