Indie developer Supergiant Games has no doubt been breaking out the bubbly this week, and not just because it's New Year's eve. Bastion has managed to surpass the 500,000 downloads milestone, which means great things for the fledgling developer.
"Recent holiday sales on Steam and Xbox LIVE Arcade put us over the top. We’re happy to have this many people playing and to be in a position to make more games on our own terms,' read the celebratory post on Supergiant Games' site. "When we set out to make Bastion, a sales number like that seemed astronomical to us, so it feels great to have hit that mark."
Bastion also scooped a whole host of awards and accolades, making it one of the most successful XBLA games this year, which incidentally also has some 'Stranger's Dream' DLC now available to grab for a mere 80 Microsoft Points. But how did it fare in our Game of the Year Awards, you ask? Go and take a look now!
