tl;dr -> Took me half my playtime (6 hours) to realize I had been bamboozled to play a sports game LOL 11/10 would be jebaited again.

Disclosure: I DO NOT like playing most traditional sports games (I enjoyed Deathrow, Blitzball in Final Fantasy 10, Blitz: The League series, Blood Bowl, and the Ballers/Street franchises). I realized while writing this that one critical component for me is the ability to beat up other people during the match lol.

[This game was played through Steam]

If you like difficult choices, interesting characters, 3-verses-3 sports, fantastic music, and exploring the gray area in a world that is both hell and purgatory, then you will enjoy this game.

The aesthetics are great - the art style is unique and feels very vibrant and alive. The animations and special effects are fluid and flashy, however, I believe the music is the strongest component in this game. The music perfectly sets the atmosphere - the vocalists in the Pyre soundtrack perfectly set the tone of every match (and even the parts leading up to them). The first time I participated in a “boss match” [I’ll call it that to avoid spoilers] it felt so amazing and satisfying when the two vocalists suddenly starting singing over the instrumentals. I highly recommend checking out the soundtrack at the very least. The voice acting is very well-done, however, note that almost all of the characters use a fake language so you will still need to read the dialogue.

The game can be played using keyboard and mouse, however, I strongly suggest using a controller instead. While I was able to successfully climb the ranks with my kb&m setup, I noticed a significant improvement when I swapped to a controller - specifically, my character switching and passing/throwing were more accurate. The learning curve is slight to moderate depending on your experience with sports and, or real-time tactical games. You are able to change the difficulty freely, however, if there is a True Nightwing setting that is unlocked after your first playthrough, and that is not changeable if selected. Each of the tutorials are very helpful, and you are given a short practice session whenever a new character is recruited. Around the mid-game, even on the standard difficulty, the AI plays very competently - you will need to change up your strategy if you wish to remain undefeated. I appreciated that my opponents scaled fairly as the story progressed (they receive buffs and skills over time); most opposing teams never felt too weak or too strong.

Without revealing too much, your goal is to climb the ranks of the Rites league, defeating opposing teams in along the way. The game starts off mostly linear, with the mid-game allowing you to choose from a pool of teams to challenge. Winning or losing will affect the rankings, and this can be used to your advantage if you are trying to force (or avoid) a specific team to join you in the finals.

During a Rite, you will choose 3 members in your roster to play against the opposing team (you can view the other team’s stats and adjust accordingly). A ball spawns in the middle of the arena, and you must pick up and bring it to the opponent’s pyre - succeeding lowers the pyre’s health based on the character’s Glory rating. Be warned, dousing a pyre will cause that player to be temporarily “banished” (removed from play) until another person scores. To avoid this, you can throw the ball into the pyre, however, it is possible for your opponents to block and intercept. Successfully throwing your ball into the pyre will cause you to score while retaining all 3 team members.

Normally, each player projects an aura of their sins based on his or her Presence rating. Upon ball pickup, the aura will disappear, leaving the carrier vulnerable to enemy attacks - if they touch an opposing aura they will be banished until their respawn counter reaches 0 (length is based on Hope rating). While you are not carrying the ball, you can also shoot your aura (the projectile stats will depend on the character type). A good tactic is to quickly throw the ball at an enemy (they will catch it if you are accurate) then either run into them (disintegrating them with your aura) or shoot your aura. Another strategy I learned from the AI is to pass very quickly when an opponent is rushing you because your aura will return and, if it is larger, banish the enemy.

If you enjoy real-time tactics, you will thoroughly enjoy the challenges in Pyre because you are only able to control one team member at a time. At higher difficulties (and closer to the endgame), you will need to rapidly switch between characters because the AI will target idle ones and banish them.

There are numerous items you can buy and equip - many of which are upgrade-able by using special blue salts (that you can also buy). For example, one item will increase your Quickness rating (makes you move faster), while another one will give you +1 gold whenever you banish an opponent (up to a maximum of x). I strongly recommend buying the “+1 gold per banish” and the “+5 per score” items early on to maximize your gold income.

Characters gain Enlightenment experience and can level up 4 times. Although the skill trees are very small (you can ultimately select 4 out of 8 options; there is an item that will allow you to reset your selection), there is enough variety to allow you to create different specialists. For example, one of the starting character’s trees will turn him into an inspiring commander-style player, providing buffs to the entire team. On the other hand, specializing in the other tree will make him into a more competent attack. I strongly recommend grabbing the last skill in one of the trees when you reach level 3 because trying to play like a jack-of-all-trades will make the game very, very difficult.

I don’t want to reveal too much of the story, but outside of the Rites you will often be presented with different routes to take - typically, there will be notes of what to expect if you pick each of the choices. This adds a lot of variety and replayability. Moreover, once you learn the major plot point, you will realize that the replayability is extremely high (especially if you like the characters) because there is an immense amount of dialogue available to read.

Overall, I was extremely surprised by how much I enjoyed playing Pyre. If you enjoy having to make difficult choices and investing in interesting characters while playing some intense 3-on-3 basketball (where you can “kill” each other), then you should definitely try this game.

ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND!

Cheers,

Beautiful art wasted on a mediocre game with too much forced exposition

Some glaring issues where good choices optimize the fun out of the game:
- I want to use the interesting Talismans on my players but the two talismans that increase gold gain in each match are too mandatory to not use
- I want to use the difficulty enhancing titan stars that give me the xp bonus, but the bonus is too small compared to how much they increase match duration and xp is lost when a player ascends
- I want to increase the rank of my players on resting places, but the passive enhancements and gold is way more important everytime
- I want to play through this game again but i know i can't skip all those transitional sequences when traveling or before the match that take forever

I loved Bastion
I loved Transistor
When Pyre first announced I was very excited for it! But later after seeing the gameplay I was really skeptical about it. At the time I was thinking, a sports game really? But then I got this game for free for buying Hades (can't wait to play it!) and I thought why not try it. And well I love it! The art is amazing, the music is amazing (gave me goosebumps several times), the gameplay which I was skeptical at first turns out to be fun and can be intense on higher difficulties and with the optional stuffs and my god the choices! The choices are really tough and can give each play a different and interesting outcome!
All in all I have to apologize for doubting Supergiant and thank you for the amazing game!

I got this game for free when i bought Hades awhile ago. I was a little worried if this type of gameplay would click with me as it is very unique, it's like american football only if it had players who can fly and explode their adversaries, but i ended up enjoying alot more than i was expecting.

As for the Story it can go both ways, if you enjoy reading ALOT and learning about the world the characters live in then this will be your cup of tea, although if you are like me, lazy and with extreme difficulty in reading former english (english is not my first language) then it becomes tiring really fast as it is alot of dialogue, although just by reading the most important bits it was enough to understand it's purpose.

The music is probably my favourite part about this game, each character and situation has it's own unique theme and so many pieces can bring such emotion to a scene during combat or story such as ''In the Flame'' and ''Never to Return'', being one of my personal favourites. (''Dread Design'' didnt have to be so good but it DID!!)

Positives:
- Rich story, you can tell it was put alot of work into the writing and each decision you make throughout your adventure brings different types of scenarios and dialogue
- Excellent music, seriously
- The Artstyle and Design of this game is just beautiful, it's what has drawn to me to play it in the first place! They did such a fantastic job in portraying a personality of a character just by their design and features, even your adversaries are all unique and different to one another.
- After you complete the story, you can unlock different difficulties or choose PvP mode, this depends for each person whether or not they enjoy the gameplay aspect but if you do then you always have a reason to come back and enjoy it in different ways.

Negatives:
- The gameplay is not for everyone, it can be quite difficult even on easy mode if you don't know what you're doing.

although a little hint if you are stuck:[spoiler] most enemies on easy mode don't react if you are flying towards their pyre so if you haven't already use Ti'zo or Pamitha, you will get better results if you buy items which increase your speed or decrease the adversaries ability to react) [/spoiler]

Supergiant Games thank you for this great and unique experience, I look forward to your development on Hades and other projects.

It’s kind of difficult to explain my thoughts on Pyre because it’s such a strangely unique game. For starters, it was a hell of a lot longer than I anticipated. I thought I’d be dropping between 8-11 hours like Supergiant’s previous games, but uh, as you can see from my time in this game...nope.

There’s no traditional combat system in Pyre. Instead, it’s part VN and part sports game with some RPG elements laced in. The VN portion is self-explanatory enough, but the sports game is a mystical soccer game (called “rites”), where two teams (called “triumvirates”) attempt to score the ball (called a “Celestial Orb”) into the opposing team’s goal (called ...wait for it…a ”pyre”). Each team generally starts with 100 points, and the first team to “extinguish” the other team’s pyre is the winner of the rite.

It's honestly a lot of fun once you get the hang of it, but there were several points of frustration that often made the game feel a little unfair. (Full disclosure, I started the game on the hardest available difficulty, “Heightened”, and later had to drop it down to “Standard.”) For one, there’s an absolutely insane difficulty curve when the opposing team starts losing. During a pretty balanced rite, if you take a winning lead, it’s not uncommon for the opposing triumvirate to jump what felt like two difficulty levels and zip across the field into your pyre before even having a chance to react. Another issue that I had was that sometimes there was just too much going on on-screen to really follow the orb or the character that I was in control of. The orb would just get lost in the flashy animations or backgrounds, and I wouldn’t be able to find it again until the opposing triumvirate was driving it into my pyre.

The lore of the game is conveyed partly through interacting with characters and partly through an in-game lore book, which is a bit dense and archaic, but hey, it has dark mode , so that’s a plus. The overarching story of the game really didn’t grip me until about half-way through, which is honestly where I thought the game was ending.

Without as few spoilers as possible, the objective you’re working towards doesn’t turn out to be the end of the game, but is instead the end of a cycle, which you have to repeat several times before the game ends. When I first realized that it was a cycle, and I was nowhere near the end of the game, I was a bit discouraged, and I was kind of worried that the cycles were there to sorta artificially pad out the game’s length, but having completed it now, I can pleasantly say that’s not the case. There’s so much story and character development after the first cycle that it’s pretty clear this was by-design and had a lot of thought put into it.

There’s also several different mechanics that are introduced later in the game that keeps the game feeling pretty fresh, such as allowing you to fly between rites in the blackwagon versus slowly driving in a linear fashion to each rite location. There’s also Volfred’s planner, which allows you to monitor the rankings of all of the game’s triumvirates, as well as the Titan Stars, which are optional modifiers for a rite that ups the ante, making a rite more difficult, in return for additional experience for your characters.

In conclusion, despite spending far more time in this game than I initially planned, I had a really great time with it. During the opening hours, I expected to walk away with Pyre being my least favorite Supergiant game, but instead, it’s probably my second favorite to Transistor. So, if you’re into Supergiant’s games and/or want to experience something incredibly unique, I would definitely recommend checking out Pyre.

[h1]Overview[/h1]
Pyre is a party-based RPG that is a slight mix between fantasy-basketball and a visual novel. Now, that does sound confusing, but rest assured, you're not alone. As strange as the genre may sound, Supergiant Games has managed to combine all of those elements found in team-based RPG's, combined them with a sports-like gameplay inside of a fantasy setting, while creating character arcs the player feels invested in. I was initially hesitant to check this game out, given the 'team-based strategy' element but if you do take a risk, you might find something memorable.


(+) Pros
• Fantastic visuals and character design
• Top-tier voice acting
• A compelling story where your choices do matter and does change your playstyle
• The music is handled great by Darren Korb, making the soundtrack set the mood
• Strong replayability for future playthroughs

(-) Cons
• Getting through dialogue on repeat playthroughs can be a bit slow, even with the 'fast-forward' option

[h1]Story & World[/h1]
Before getting into the general gameplay, it's necessary to understand the world Supergiant Games has created because these worlds are always such an important piece to the puzzle that is known as Pyre.

In Pyre, you live in a land known as the Commonwealth that has outlawed reading. You are discovered to have this ability and cast out to a purgatory-like land known as the Downside. This land is a literal prison; you cannot return to the Commonwealth because it is physically impossible to return. The only other people who populate the Downside are other criminals who've broken similar laws as well. You'll meet humans, dog people, bird people, and even demons. While you're condemned to live out the rest of your days in the Downside, you find a small band of strangers who rescue you and offer you a chance to return back home.

You discover that there's a secret ritual unknown to most people in the Commonwealth that competes two groups in the Downside, each led by someone who can read, for a chance of redemption. The ritual places a team of three individuals against a similar team, in a sort of fantasy basketball. However, the team that wins the match has a chance to submit one person from their party to receive favor from the Gods. If the Gods favor that person, they will return this individual back to the Commonwealth, cleared of their crimes. However, for each character you encounter in your party, you will have to make the choice on who to 'redeem' and send back home. You'll grow to learn and love many of these characters, making the choices later in the game harder. As the game progresses, you may even learn why they were banished to the Downside, impacting your decision as the player on whether or not to save them in the ritual.

However, there are a few problems.

First off, you can't save more than one person at a time. When you choose to 'redeem' one of your party members, everyone else, including yourself, is stuck in the Downside. On top of this, you'll run into other people in other clans who have very good reasons to return home, making you question whether or not you should let the opposing side win certain matches. The biggest problem is as the game progresses, you'll soon find out that the 'chances' you'll have to save someone and return them home are limited; you can't play the game forever. At some point, you're going to need to make the decision on who has to remain in the Downside forever.

[h1]General Gameplay[/h1]
Pyre does something radical when it comes to gameplay; it makes you consider the story at the same time. While debating who you're going to send home, you have to remember that upcoming fights in the future will be more difficult if you send your star athlete back to the Commonwealth. Sure, you'd have made their dream come true and return them home, but from now on, you're now without that athlete's skills and talents. You are then forced to make critical decisions about whether or not you want to risk losing future engagements at the expense of saving characters you really care about.

Pyre plays a little bit like some sport games. Your team can pick up a ball in the center of the map and 'dunk it' into the enemy's basket, or rather, pyre. They can also pass the ball to each other, cast abilities to temporarily banish enemy players, jump, dodge, and use a variety of unique abilities. For example, the bird-like creatures known as the Harps can fly over enemies. Demons, on the other hand are very slow behemoths on the battlefield, but can attack in huge AOE's.

Progressing through the game makes you realize that at some point, you're going to want to save some characters you care about at the expense of making future engagement incredibly difficult. Worse, if you lose certain rituals, you can end up accidentally freeing an enemy athlete, having them steal your chance at redemption instead of someone from your own party.

There is no game-over. If you lose, that's part of your story. You have to push forward and try harder to fight and win in upcoming rituals. The game doesn't stop and whenever you have a quiet moment, you're able to upgrade certain abilities for party members that they'll have gained through participation.

[h1]Sound[/h1]
The music is absolutely beautiful. The vocals are as deep and resonate than ever, using the amazing vocal talents from Darren Korb and Ashley Barrett. While there are quiet tracks without vocals, the few songs that incorporate their talents are simply amazing. Each song they sing tells the story of what is currently happening in the game and even hints at more story regarding each and every character.

The sound design is incredibly great as well. Explosions, grunts, cheers, and even the fake language the characters speak all sound believable and match the tone to what is happening.

[h1]Visuals & Performance[/h1]
If you've played Banner Saga, the art style is visually consistent with that game, but Pyre does make more use of vibrant colors and crazy geometry. Each character is visually distinct and identifiable. The only real downside to the visuals is some of the animations for conversations use the same character portrait, making it feel that the developers ran out of time to incorporate additional rest-poses for the cast. It isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it could've helped at certain story junctures.

In terms of performance, I only experienced one error that required me to restart the game. While shopping for some items from the curio shop to equip my team, the 'exit' button simply disappeared and wouldn't let me return back to the game. However, further attempts to replicate this error failed, making it very rare. And even then, the game constantly saves after every point.

[h1]Conclusion[/h1]
Some games offer a fun distraction; I don't mean this as a bad thing. Yet, those games offer nothing more beyond vague memories. However, there aren't many games that leave a lasting impression, making me notice a lump in my throat as the credits start. Pyre is one of those rare gems, where if you enjoy visual novels on top of RPG team-based gameplay where your decisions matter, it'll be hard for you to find a better game.

You actually care about the characters you're travelling with, and when the time comes for you to make a decision, it changes gameplay in a way where you're forced to consider if you want to keep playing with the same characters you grown to love or release them to go back home to their loved ones. Never to return.

Pyre is another one of those amazing games where the gameplay is deceptively difficult although quite simple, the story forces you to make choices you aren’t ready for and the artwork and music elevate it to a must play game. I normally stay away from anything sports related when gaming, but recommend this to anyone who likes basketball type sports or games that constantly make you question your choices.

Set in a high fantasy setting. you take the role of the reader, a person banished from the commonwealth to the downside, a hellish landscape where life is hard and most perish soon after becoming an exile. You are found by a trio of saviours and soon take up the mantle of the reader (being one of the few people who are literate) who guides the Nightwings (your team) in the rites, a basketball like competition where if you win you might be able to send a banished teammate home, with all crimes forgiven and a glorious future. What begins as a simple task of winning to keep the promise you made together turns into a hand wringing choice of who plays, and who you vote to send home. Do you send your best home, making future matches harder? What about the opponents, many who have been exiled unjustly or because of political reasons? Does sacrificing one person’s happiness outweigh the many? The underlying themes of personal redemption, loss and sacrifice are constantly hammered home, each choice becoming harder as the game plays on. I loved that your team are essentially the last boss (think of them as the Bulls during their championship heyday), the rites stop if you don’t play, forcing all the other teams to compete against each other for that slim chance to best you and be.

The gameplay is simple but yet complex at higher difficulties, and allows for lots of intricate strategies depending on who you field. Your goal is to get the celestial orb (the ball) and use it to douse the opponent’s pyre (the net). If a character dives into the pyre they are excluded from the next round, otherwise the orb can be thrown into the pyre which allows all characters to return, however running the risk of it being intercepted. A character’s aura size is their defence, when an aura touches an opponent they are banished for a set time. Each character has different speed, stamina, jump distances, aura sizes, aura shapes and attacks that can be used for offence and defence, as well as passive buffs. You can only control one character at a time but switch between the 3 characters that you have selected. Carrying the orb will remove that character’s aura and disable attacks, so while it’s tempting to try and run one character down the court it makes sense to move all 3 down, trying to banish the other sides characters so you have a free shot at the pyre. A level of planning is required, if you play with the same characters too often they are forced to miss a rite, which can leave you with a team of underperforming characters at a critical rite you want to win. Loss isn’t an end in Pyre, and while you miss out on XP, you gain XP at twice the rate next time you win. The opponent’s saviour their victory, moving up the ladder for a greater chance at a liberation rite, where the winner sets one character free. Losing one match may allow you to come back stronger, more focused against a weaker team. Sometimes losing is winning.

Pyre, like Bastion before it is an explosion of colour, each world map point is wonderfully drawn with points to interact with, choices to make with full lore of each area slowly being drop fed to you as you play. Each stage is slightly different, with some favouring characters who can fly, others who can zip around quickly or can use other abilities. Characters have a wonderful style about them, and a lot of the game is spent talking to your teammates and the trip to the destination, not the destination itself.

The sounds and music are amazing as ever, and while most characters vocals are gibberish, The Voice who commentates the matches and equally uplifts and belittles you’re efforts is great to listen to. The music is full of string instrumentals and matches the game perfectly. There are a few songs with vocals, and they positioned at perfect places in the game. I loved how the end credits song changes to what you accomplished in game, I haven’t seen that done before.

The controls are quite intuitive and there aren’t a lot of combinations to remember. You can play using a keyboard but I highly recommend using a controller. There is a option for local co-op, which does allow you to try using the opponents leaders, instead of the 9 standard ones.

The only DLC for the game is the soundtrack, and as mentioned before its good.

If you are trying to get 100% achievements then Pyre is quite easy, though it requires 2 play throughs to finish on the hardest difficulty.

Its undeniably beautiful, the sound is great, and the game is fun. But the pacing is really really slow. After every 2 minutes of gameplay there is 5 to 7 minutes of slow unskipable animations and dialog, little of which advanced the plot. So I was constantly cursing the narrator for taking so long to finish his speeches, and the text for being so voluminous, and the columns for being so wide that it hurt my eyes trying to read the text.

Out of 9.6 hours of gametime, probably 90 minutes was actual gameplay. The rest was watching the wagon animation and repeatedly hitting the 'hurry dialog' button. So while it was a great 90 minutes, and I enjoyed about 30 minutes of the cutscenes, the remaining 7.6 hours was not much fun at all, so I feel like it just managed to break even by being really good in the fun bits.

This is a somewhat surprising success, given that it's a melding of a sports sim and a story driven adventure game. It shouldn't work or even make sense in any way, but it ends up being a must play. As with all Supergiant Games, the ambiance, progression system, and story strongly outpace the action, but the fantastic narrative and characters more than make up for some so-so gameplay at times. Like any good sports game, losing a match doesn't stop further progression, and the story shifts well to accommodate. Excellent use of player choice and solid tie backs to choices with the story at the end. Very highly recommended.

Despite being a long time fan of Supergiant (Transistor is to this day one of the few games I've ever preordered) I was quite sceptical about Pyre, especially due to its sport-y nature. Boy, how wrong I was. Not only is Pyre's story extraordinarily charming (probably the best execution of make your own path I've seen in this media), characters incredibly varied, art and music as marvelous as ever, but pyre's ritual gameplay is surprisingly fun as well.

And it all works together so, so well.

This is an all-round excellent story-heavy game. It is difficult to say exactly what it is about without spoiling anything, but here is what I thought of it overall:

+ The characters are attaching, with personal goals, struggles, flaws, and strengths. You really end up rooting for them.
+ The story is compelling and emotional, with actually meaningful and heart-tearing choices.
+ The artworks are stunning, with unique character designs, and beautiful environments.
+ The music is wonderful, with a lot of character-specific and place-specific soundtracks creating an immersive ambience.
+ The gameplay is very original, somewhat close to a sports game with RPG elements, but that description doesn't do it justice. It is pretty light and easy to get the hang of, but can be a bit tricky to master.

I recommend this game to pretty much anyone. Especially if you are looking for a strong narrative experience with lightweight but dynamic gameplay, this is the game for you.

May my glorious Nightwings return in glory.

Honestly, I had to take a year break to finish this game after the first liberation ritual. After finding out I had to repeat this gameplay loop over and over for (who knows at the time) the rest of my group, I got annoyed and put this game aside until this isolation period (woo 2020).

Coming back, I find the gameplay loop to be refreshing and the story to be really immersive. The soundtrack is (as expected of Supergiant) amazing to listen to. There's a lot I want to say about this game, and I can gush about it for a while if I can get my thoughts in order. But instead I'll say that I'm content with my decisions made in this game. But also Pamitha is best girl, I may have left her for second last because I really did fall in love with her character.

I went in blind having played only the other Supergiant games (Bastion/Transistor) and really enjoyed it. The soundtrack is very well put together as usual for their games. The story is riveting and there can be multiple endings. The gameplay itself is contained in the rites (3v3 teamsport game where you try to score a goal) which is probably the weakest part (though still solid) of the game.
Supergiant Games again proves that there are video games who can spin a narrative that can be considered art.

Pyre is outrageously good. Supergiant brings their absolute best to the table with this one.

Everyone talks about how this is a sports game, but don't let that turn you off. This is a premiere example of gameplay being fun and exciting BECAUSE of the context for it. Every aspect of this game is connected, and woven into a stunning tapestry of a story, with absolutely beautiful art and music. Hats off to Darren Korb for once again bringing some of the most emotionally charged moments I've experience in a game because of the score. This game is a masterclass in worldbuilding and if you want an adventure, you've come to the perfect place.

Supergiant's best story game, by a loooong shot, not because Transistor and Bastion are bad, but because Pyre is just such a good, carefully crafted game. Every aspect of the game feeds into the rest Gameplay>Story>Art>Music and so on. It's a game whose characters, world and music you won't forget.
Pyre is an unapreciated gem and it's a shame it only has a 92% on Steam and a 82 on Metacritic.

Absolutely excellent storytelling, world-building and characters.

Cool idea of gameplay, but clumsily implemented at times in my opinion, to the point of frustration.

Overall, I pushed past moments of frustrating 'combat' / competition because the story, world and characters were so, so worth it.

I'll be back to play this one in a couple years. A couple choices I would've made differently...and it is one of those games where your choices actually *do* matter!

Having loved every other Supergiant game, I thought Pyre's weak gameplay would be worth it for the narrative. I was wrong.

The lore is DENSE. You gain pages to a literal lore book as you play the game, which initially gives you some much needed backstory and context. After that, it's nothing but prose, which doesn't add anything to the main story, or the story of each triumvate.

I tried beating this game five different times. Each attempt ended with absolute boredom. The only interesting decisions in this game relate to the Final Rites: everything else is a padded out visual novel. Which would have been fantastic, if not for the completely unrelated basketball game shoved into this fantasy.

I enjoyed the soundtrack more than the game itself.

On a more serious note. Pyre is a sports game tied together as a visual novel. The story unfolds very carefully and is written in a way that feels personal. I want the best for all of these strange creatures and I will stop at nothing to make sure they make it home safe.

A choose-your-own-adventure RPG, visual novel with basketball elements on top of a fantastic setting.

Best supergiant game so far (and that is something). Character are fantastic and the story is even better especially how changeable it is depending on your choices. Music as always is on point. Gameplay is pretty good, a bit on the easy side but definitely does not outstay it welcome (can also always be made harder using optional rules).

What are you supposed to think when you know a game is better than you're willing to give it credit for, but you had no fun with it at all?

I can't tell if I'm just irritable at the time of this review, but that's my honest reaction. Playing on the hardest difficulty available to a new player, believing it would up the complexity of Pyre's gameplay, I found myself unengaged. It doesn't feel fun to learn or repetitively grapple with these systems. If you don't care about the strict fundamentals of the gameplay, which in this takes the form of a rugby-esque tactical positioning game, all of the orbiting RPG upgrades and branching paths aren't going to nourish you.

Furthermore, Pyre's exposition, lore-dump and characterisation is so unapologetically alien (although well-written), that you almost have no frame of reference to begin absorbing it - it feels like work to put anything together, and when you do, you unveil a deceptively simple narrative.

I think this is just me here. I didn't like it. Does that mean it's a bad game? Most likely not. SuperGiant are excellent at what they do, and the presentation here alone is enough to blow your socks off. I may even give this a second chance in the future. But at 4 hours in, which is roughly a third of the game's runtime, I found myself wishing I had spent my afternoon doing something else. That's not a good sign.

This game has the same striking visuals and music as previous Supergiant games, but that is where the similarities to Bastion and Transistor end. This plays like a hybrid visual novel/sports game with RPG elements where you assemble your team of varied characters and explore a detailed fantasy world (while reading enough text to fill a book). Highly recommended!

Such a unique game. A game that can make me deeply care about fictional, virtual and non-existent characters is a thumbs up in my book. And I love the way SGG has tackled this choice based narrative in just 10-15 hours of playtime.

As with most SGG games, the core gameplay (the sports matches) is deep and nuanced, albeit the loop being pretty short this time around. But it is thrilling like Hades, and unlike Bastion or Transistor. Even after going through the campaign, it feels like there is so much to uncover and discover in the core loop, and so many different ways to play it. This seems a natural theme in all SGG games. All their games run short (Hades being an exception), but there is deep gameplay hidden within with multitude of options, if the player so wishes to explore it.

Loved the game. Loved the thrill of sports. Loved how the narrative is woven in the sports format. Contains the SGG DNA in spades.

Unlike Bastion, Pyre is one of the most underrated games to exist.

It's a game that's more about the journey than the destination. It's definitely heavy with lore and reading, and some of the basketball games can be quite punishing (looking at you, Essence), but it doesn't matter if you win or lose ultimately, which I think adds even more flavour to the game. Upon reaching the ending and hearing the credits song tailored to the choices I made in the game, I was brought to tears. It leaves an impact on you, thinking about who you deemed worthy and who you left to remain after bonding with them all. Since you pick which triumvirates you battle after your first liberation rite, no two playthroughs will be the same, either, being able to explore different results from fighting other groups various times. Highly recommend.

What made me love transistor so much over bastion (I am a minority it seems) is the unique upgrades combo system and the completely optional turn based option in combat, all of that is gone here.

They improved the art-style, story, music and atmosphere to a masterful degree,
but this bizarre silly basketball gameplay really doesn't appeal to me, A critical part of this is the very awkward control scheme, which doesn't let me feel in control.

I find myself trying to get through it just to experience everything else, such a shame.

As far as Supergiant games go, this one is a blunder. It's a sports game pretending to be an RPG. Even though I am not a fan of sports games, I can appreciate a good, fun and competitive title. But Pyre doesn't have any of that. The visuals are stunning as always when it comes to Supergiant games, but that's where the positives end. The controls are clunky, gameplay of the Rites is repetitive, the dialogues are overly dramatic and not very interesting, the story sections in between give you an illusion of choice, which ultimately don't matter and neither does winning or losing. After going through the first Rites cycle I had no motivation to keep playing.

Please play this game. It's a solid 10/10.

It pains me beyond compare that THIS of all of Supergiant's games is the least successful. Pyre is visually stunning. It has the most varied, yet thoroughly amazing soundtrack of any media I've ever encountered. There is immense care, thought, and love poured into every frame.

The core game play of the Rites gets a little repetitive at times, but it was never a slog for me as I enjoy them. Increase the difficulty to enjoy them even more!

If you like visual novels, play Pyre.
If you like sports games, play Pyre.
If you like Supergiant Games, please play Pyre.

It's a difficult game to explain to people, and perhaps that's why it can be a bit of a hard sell. But I promise you it's an experience unlike any other. The story kept me engaged from minute 1. The only time I wouldn't recommend this is if you really hate reading and story. Otherwise, there should be no reason not to play and enjoy this masterpiece.

Needless to say, it's my favorite game of all time.

Pyre is now in my favorite games of all time. Minimal spoiler reasons:
-Very story based, but the gameplay is central to the narrative, plenty present, and equally as exciting as the story
-Gripping narrative that often intensely pulls at your empathy, bonding you with charming characters you'll fall in love with, and a world built to become invested in, will make you cry and put those funny feelings in your chest
-Exciting intense gameplay, solid and fun difficulty selection
-Colorful, bright and beautiful visuals
-Soundtrack is nice and fitting, vocal sections are genuinely good
-Choosable PC pronouns, including they/them
-You can be lesbian and make girls happy
-There's a dog with a funny mustache
That's all have fun if you get this ^__^

tl;dr: Pyre is a very visually and acoustically pleasing game, with fresh and exhilarating gameplay that fills you with adrenaline, but has a story too big for what the game tries to present and unfortunately does all of its world building and story through slow dialog

Now onto the proper review

Pyre is a very curious game, especially coming from Super Giant Games, as I had played all their other games before this one where they sprinkle the story and dialog through the gameplay as a breadcrumb trail to make you want more. This game very distinctly splits the high energy gameplay from the story telling aspect in the wrong way, telling all of its story though long and slow segments of dialog.

This style of story telling is unfortunately both overwhelming and boring, for the first quarter of the game you don't even know what is going on because they just overload you with information. Transistor has you feel in the dark towards the beginning as well, but that was on purpose as they slowly fed you bread crumbs of information as you realize what is happening. The only part of it that made me really feel much is having to release characters I've grown attached to after a Liberation Rite, which are exhilarating pieces of work.

It's unfortunate that the story telling came out as such as I want to be interested in the world as it has an interesting world and interesting characters that I wish I could have had a more immersive experience with, but this was a learning experience for Supergiant, and they nailed the ball out of the park with the story telling in Hades, so I can accept this as their way of experimentation.

While I may bag on the way the story was handles, the actual gameplay is phenomenal. The Rites are such a breath of fresh air. Across the whole game you have 9 characters that can attend the rites and 3 can be out a time, leaving many variations of strategies you can go for, such as going for high speed characters leaves little in defense, and they don't hit that hard. High defense characters are slow and easy to catch when they have the ball, but hit quite hard.

Being a part of the rites is extremely heart pounding as so much can happen, and these matches can last upward of 10 minutes or more. Like having your pyre be low and you're on constant defense cause the enemy is being extremely aggressive and all you can do is rely on one character at a time to defend as your characters get constantly knocked out. Also you and the enemy can only control one character at a time, leaving the ones uncontrolled to stand still. It's a very interesting style of gameplay all around.

I highly enjoy the fact that there is no failure state, loosing is just simply a part of the game, and you can continue on.
If you know your way around games, I highly recommend playing on either of the two highest difficulties as it enhances the experience quite a bit when there is a high challenge. There's also customizable difficulty like in the other Super Giant games, such as making the enemies respawn faster or making them much more cunning all around.

There is also vs. mode for those who like to play competitive games with their friends, and it gives the players the option of every character in the game, including the NPCs in the story mode. Playing against a real life person is as they can be just as aggressive as you and exploit certain mechanics that the CPU would normally not.

I give this game a 6.5/10, its not crazy fantastic like Hades with its near perfect mix of Story and Gameplay or Transistor with its absolutely phenomenal story, but it's a solid game with great gameplay, fantastic music, and a beautiful art style which I recommend, especially those who are into Super Giant Games as a whole.

A fantastic, creative, beautiful game by Supergiant? Well I never!

The studio's third game might be one of their more unheralded games, seeing as Bastion helped kicked off the indie game golden age in 2011 and Hades is struggling to hold all of the review sites' Game of the Year awards, but this middle child game is not to be overlooked. Supergiant studios seem to have a precise goal of saturating the player in as much lore, color, art, sounds, and characters as humanly possible in 10-12 hours. It, like its brethren, is a sensory delight, with fascinating background environments and creative locales. Its award-worthy soundtrack, once more by Darren Korb (with additional vocals by the also-familiar Ashley Lynn Barrett), heightens the game and gives themes to memorable characters and chapters.

And oh, the characters. The dwellers of the underworld in this universe are cast out of society for what they did, and part of the mystery of the plot is to find out why you are there, along with why your compatriots are there. The characters in your troupe include fast-talking and wisecracking dogs, pipe-smoking trees, grumpy demons and so much more. The primary story has to do with each of them earning their freedom by competing in the Rites, to earn their way back into the Commonwealth and shake things up through societal reform.

Let's talk about dem Rites! As most of the story is told in text based, sometimes-choices-matter dialogue with your friendos, the meat and potatoes of playing the game consists of the Rites: selecting three-person teams of your allies to play a version of Mystical Basketball. You basically have to pick up the ball (Celestial Orb) and run or toss it into your opponent's goal (diminishing their Pyres). Your characters have tons of abilities to help them move the ball down the field without getting hit by their opponents, sending them back to your Pyre after a short delay. The gameplay is fast and exciting, most matches concluded with me yelling YES and fist-pumping, or burying my head in my hands because I failed my teammates.

Unfortunately, not all of your accumulated friends can make it back to the Commonwealth, and you must eventually choose who might stay in the underworld. The bonds you create and the stories you learn about your companions becomes paramount to the game's choice system, and will undoubtably lead you to stay up late at night, wondering which of your party is more worthy (or that just may have been my hyper-specific experience).

I could go on for lots longer, but just pick this game up and in five minutes you'll see why it's a hidden gem. GO SUPERGIANT!

One of the most beautiful and engaging games I've ever played. Supergiant Games have to be one of the greatest studios to ever grace the industry. Everything about this points towards it being the culmination of everything they learnt from both Bastion and Transistor - it is simply a masterpiece.

Before getting into Hades, I wanted to try Pyre as well, going in with high expectations after enjoying Bastion and Transistor quite a lot.
After the beginning I was worried I was not going to like it, since the start is very slow. There's not much story yet and the gameplay is very simple (reminding of regular ball sports). But beneath the surface it keeps adding more lore, gameplay variation, characters and choices while making progress. Important choices usually are warned about ahead of time, so you can think about what you want to do. I often don't care about what happens to characters but when I had to make my choices here, I noticed wanting to make the right choices for them.
The clean graphics reminded me of Hades already, it's clear Supergiant Games decided to continue on Pyre's story telling style in their next game.
In my opinion the RPG part is bigger than the showdowns, but both are great. I'd say Pyre is more complicated than Bastion and Transistor, since it takes quite a bit of time to get into it. So it takes a bit of patience in the beginning, but I was pretty happy finishing this after all.

First let's get this out of the way. This is NOT an RPG game like the previous ones from Supergiant. It is a 3x3 fantasy basketball game. So be certain that you are buying the correct game and don't have the wrong expectations.

[h1]The good: [/h1]
Classic supergiant quality. The art is superb, the backgrounds detailed, and colours everywhere. Art, sound and general design is as great as it can be. No arguments there.

[h1]The bad: [/h1]
The game gives you a list of characters to play, but you start losing them one by one. This means that as the game progresses you have LESS options on what to do. Compare this to the typical RPG game where as you progress you gain new abilities. The game teases you and says that you need to find combos between your characters as a game hint, which is stupid, if you don't have enough characters to play with.
The main game loop (some story, some dummy choices and a 3x3 round of fantasy basketball) is very short. It quickly becomes repetitive. And with the loss of characters it becomes even more boring.

[h1]The ugly:[/h1]
The game has adaptive difficulty. If you start losing, the enemy team does stupid things. You see them have a clear opening and they sit there doing nothing. If you are winning, the enemy team gains great speed and uses some unblockable moves to score. One of the favourite moves of the cpu is to bring a player close to your basket/pyre and then move the ball back by a very long distance to another player close to their pyre/basket. The camera starts panning and you lose your orientation. Then the cpu throws back the ball to the first player close to your basket and they score before you had a change to understand what happened. There is no incentive to get better if you know that the way you play does not really matter.

Frankly if this wan't a supergiant game I would never have bothered with Pyre. It seems also that the company realized the problems with this game format, as the next game (Hades) is hopefully an RPG.

After just a few hours in and I'm already into this oddball gem. It's the kind of top notch quality you expect from these guys. Pyre certainly strays from the norm, but it's as addicting and enthralling as any other story rich action title available. I wasn't sure I would be as engrossed as I am in the team based sports-like mechanics, but it most certainly works. What can I say that hasn't already been said? Pyre is another triumph in the Supergiant Games catalog!

I gave this game a chance because of Hades, and it blew me away. The writing is every bit as good as Hades, and the narrative is incredibly captivating. While the 3 v 3 gameplay (similar to Hades's combat) isn't the star of the show, it's enjoyable and does not overstay its welcome. If you haven't played the game, the less you know about the story and mechanics, the better. And don't be afraid of failure, just keep going.

I know this isn't everyone's favorite game, just because the gameplay is so... well, different is really the only way to put it. That being said, I think it's probably my favorite of Supergiant Games's works. Though I personally enjoyed the gameplay quite a bit, I think where Pyre truly shines is in its storytelling and cast of characters, and how this is deeply intertwined with the gameplay loop. To say much more would be to spoil some of the best parts, but the way everything comes together into a single whole is simply beautiful.

And the music! Every track is gorgeous, and the way that different instruments and tracks are merged to form the music for the rites is just so well done. Each character and triumvirate's themes are unique and memorable, and I thought Hedwyn/Jodarial/Rukey being represented by different instruments in a shared theme was a neat touch as well.

You owe it to yourself to give it a shot - if nothing else, it's like nothing you've ever played before

This is a very unique game. It will not be for anyone.

Reading inc.
This game requires lots of reading. I loved the story telling. So it was a joy to read through. But I can understand this won't be anyone's cup of tea.

Role playing Game
This game has RPG elements. You constantly build your team stronger. Just be wise about how much time and effort you put in each of your companions.

Choices Matter
This game is centered around choices. From minor improvements to your characters to game/plot changing decisions. You constantly have to make choices.

Game play
Space Jam? It's a sport type of game play. I played with a controller, which felt very nice. This sport type is not my favorite style of game play. But I appreciated the risk Super Giant Games took with this unique approach. I put the difficulty very high, so every match was a challenge. So it did not feel repetitive for me.

Sound
Darren Korb. Don't have to say much more. He is one of the best.

If you really love all the titles of Super Giant Game, I would suggest you buy it. This was the reason why I bought it.

I bought this game a few years ago. I tried it and it didn't vibe with me. After playing Hades and fell in love with everything that Super Giant Games touched I decided to give it another go. Now I had more patience and understanding for the game. Enjoyed it. Not the best Super Giant Game, but still an unique game for an affordable price.

I love the concept, the world, the narrative and choices, and the game itself. My ONLY qualm with this game is that it asks you to continue despite failures (which is great!), but each failure feels really bad, so it's very hard to continue when they occur. (Although it has been very educational for me in terms of what works and doesn't in narrative game design.)

But the game is fun for sure, and I'm definitely going to see it through.

Do you like visual novels, RPGs and sport games? Do you also like different genres of music?
If your answer to both of these questions is yes and if you like it rolled into one into a great game, then this is game for you.

What do I like about this game? The story, the graphics, the ragtag team of characters, the choices that you make and it is one of the few games that it is ok to fail / lose (most of the time). I bought this on special for under $10 and I think that is a absolute bargain for what I'm getting. The replay value has been great for me and I have got to say that Darren Korb is a fine musician and composer of music. So versatile and gets the mood right.

One of the best games that I have in my Steam Collection and also one of the best games that I have played this century. It might not be for everyone, but it certainly brilliant in my opinion.

As usual, Supergiant's art style, music, and quirky world and characters are top notch. Unfortunately, that's where the positives end for me. This game is part visual novel and part fantasy basketball mini-game. You switch between 5-10 minutes of dialogue and minor character upgrades to a couple of minutes playing the basketball game and repeat. On top of that, the dialogue is overdone and much less interesting than their other games and the sports game is clunky.

I wanted to like it (I finished the entire game) and I see most people have enjoyed it, but the repetitiveness was agony to me after a while.

Pyre is a masterpiece of game design, art, and music, but it isn't very long. (it is still longer than Bastion and Transistor I think) I don't want to spoil anything so I'll make this review short.

For the gameplay, mix top-down action combat with rugby. This sounds really weird but it is surprisingly enjoyable. There's enough complexity in the mechanics to keep me interesting in finishing the game, but it isn't just the mechanics that fuel that drive.

Pyre has one of the most emotional stories I've seen in gaming, which is primarily due to the core concept of the game combined with the idea of every choice mattering. This isn't a Telltale game, your choices do matter. The cast of characters is charming and presented in a really compelling way; I liked some characters more than others but none of them stuck out as uninteresting, even the antagonists. The game actually has a surprising amount of replayability, for reasons which I will not bring up.

The game's art is unparalleled short of Hollow Knight and Ori, I'd say its better than even Hades. The soundtrack even further highlights the particularly emotional moments of the story and gave me chills on multiple an occasion; Darren Korb delivers as always. Everything clicks really well into this complex work of art that manages to be more compelling than most movies I've seen.

It's 20 dollars, while not exactly cheap its certainly not in the triple-A price range. I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys the more artistic side of the medium.

Part visual novel, part sport game. The mechanics of the Rites remain fun from beginning to end with a varied team of characters, each with their own abilities and styles, and each Rite caries its own weigh thanks to the well crafted and executed storyline.

❝ The Eight Scribes gave their freedom so that we may yet have ours.❝
- Prayer from The Book of Rites

[h1]???? Description[/h1]
Among the many Indie games created in the past years, Pyre captivated me the most, by far. From the unique art style to its emotional gripping story, this action RPG proved once again why Supergiant Games remain the majordomes of the Indie franchise. Even though by many, it is considered an underdog, I feel comfortable saying that Pyre will captivate even the most demanding players.

[h1]???? Plot [/h1]
Summary
Greetings Reader, what kind of atrocities have you committed that led you to this wretched place? Whatever your intentions are, you now abide to the secret laws of the Rites of Flame, an ancient competition through which the worthiest exiles can return home, absolved of their transgressions. Even though I should not be mending with the affairs of the likes of you, I find a peculiar interest in your progress and remember, freedom is a privilege, yours has been revoked, good luck…

Narration
Most of the allure in the word of Pyre is delivered through its amazing narrative. The plot in general is carried by a beautiful cast of characters, each with a complex backstory and purpose. In coordination with the beautiful scenery runs smoothly, bringing both the anticipation and excitement I personally need. Last but not least, I find the multipath narration a brilliant concept, as it brings out an endless stream of engaging dialogue.

[h1] ????️ Gameplay [/h1]
Compared to Supergiant Games’ past releases, Pyre offers an innovative playstyle that relies on a sport like game.
[h3]Rites[/h3]
As mentioned briefly before, Rites, also known by the name Rites of Flame, are an ancient competition where two Triumvirates (teams) compete. Each Rite is conducted when the eight Scribe Stars (the big stars in the sky) align in specific locations, which in the end results in a basketball like competition.

Rules
To begin the rites, two of the nine Triumvirates must meet in a specific location. Each member must be dressed in raiments (clothes) that represent their Triumvirate, as well as carry a copy of the Book of Rites. They must set their metal sigil on the ground and recite the quoted prayer in order to set the pyre (equivalent to life points) alight. Only three exiles can represent each Triumvirate and must act as a single mind. In short, only one person can move at a time. The teams are also allowed to have a reader, the person coordinating the Triumvirate’s actions, a role that the player must fulfill. Whoever extinguishes the opponent’s flame first wins.

How to play
When a rite is commencing a shooting star (the ball) falls from the sky right to the middle of the field. Each exile can seize the ball with the goal of throwing it into the opponent’s pyre. There are two ways of achieving this action / either you jump with the ball into the pyre or throw it. In case you choose the first option, a small cooldown will prevent the exile scoring from returning into the battlefield. In case you choose the latter, no cooldowns / restrictions will be placed. You can pass the ball or even drop it, that depends completely on you, but there are certain limits.

Limitations
From the beginning till the end of the skirmish, each adversarie (player) will produce a small aura (circle) around him that can banish (remove from the game for a number of seconds) the opponent. An exile can also cast (throw) his aura, which will have the same effect. However, when it is done, the aura will disappear for a couple of seconds, as it becomes temporarily absorbed by the orb. Each exile has a unique cast and jump ability, so be sure to check them out.

[h3]Difficulty[/h3]
As in every Supergiant Game, difficulty can be adjusted depending on the player’s needs. Here we have the Titan Stars, a way of reinforcing the difficulty of the battle, either by boosting the opponent or debuffing the player’s Triumvirate. Playing skirmishes in higher difficulties will reward the player with additional XP.

[h3]Stats[/h3]
The duration of the cooldown, as well as the size of the aura and the quickness of a character, depend completely on three major skill points that can be upgraded in many ways further into the game. The following table shall explain in detail all the stats:


[/tr]

[/tr]



[/tr]



[/tr]
Description Name
The amount of damage done to a pyre after this character manages to get the orb into the pyre. Glory
The range of the character's Aura. Presence
It’s rather self-explanatory. Quickness


[h3]Abilities[/h3]
As mentioned before, each exile is unique-from his background to his abilities. The more rites the player encounters, the more enlightenment (experience) his team will gain. It does not matter if it’s a loss or win, the fact that someone commits to the rites brings knowledge and glory. After each level-up, the player can spend his skillpoints in a skill tree. Even though the number of skills you can unlock is limited for every exile, the benefits provided are very worthy, as they can determine the course of each skirmish.

[h1]????‍???? Graphics[/h1]
As in previous Supergiant Games the art style never ceases to impress. The character design is expressive, with unique features that make even the smallest detail relevant. The various locations resemble the ones pulled from a children’s book, a feature that I personally find special. Last but not least, I stress enough the unique character animations that stand out during each skirmish.

[h1]???? Soundtracks[/h1]
The environment and sounds blend perfectly with the cartoonish scenery they represent. I should also mention here that the game features its own partial language! But among all those special features, Darren Korb (music director) once again blew my mind with his gorgeous music. Even to this day the ”Vagrant Song” lightens the gloomy mood in the atmosphere, reminding me of the much beloved Pyre experience…

[h1]????️ Side Notes[/h1]
Too much lore
As you have noticed above, in order to comprehend completely the story and the whole purpose of the adventure, you need to get accustomed with certain terms provided by huge pieces of lore. Even though I personally enjoy reading, many are not so intrigued with such concept.

Multiplayer
Among the most fun and exciting features of the game! Having to play with someone using tactics and strategy is an amazing experience that I definitely recommend. However, even though the game reaches its maximum potential when experienced together with a friend, the online player base more than dead. Pyre doesn’t have online multiplayer, a huge mistake for such a good game.

[h1]???? Verdict[/h1]
From the art to the music to the story, Pyre is a disastrous on paper idea that was handled correctly. It’s a perfect combination of fun unique adventures combined, resulting in an emotionally charged ending. I consider it a game that excels in every area of its design and thus deserves the much-needed attention!

Similar to how Supergiant blended two genres by mixing Roguelikes with ARPGs in their game Hades, they've blended two genres in Pyre: Visual novel & sports games. And the combo...actually worked really well. The visual novel parts were well written and made me invested in the characters, and the sports minigame had a lot interesting skill-trees and characters which gave it lots of depth - resulting in a game that was better than the sum of its parts.

As mindblowingly good as Hades? no. But still a great time.

Wow!
The art style, music, the world and characters are top notch. I 100% would love another game in this setting. Every bit of it is unique.

Unfortunately, that's where the positives end for me. This game is part visual novel and part fantasy basketball mini-game (called rites). I found the rite games to be really simple and not that thrilling.

A majority of the game falls under the same pattern.
You switch between 5-10 minutes of dialogue that is really cryptic and from another world completely. Then go play a clunky rites game. Travel on a mini map and begin dialogue pattern again.

One of the most unique and wonderfully told stories I've ever played. Personally, I hate most games with a lot of reading in it, but I consider this my actual most favorite game out of every game I've played. From the music, the art work, the gameplay, the characters, and the writing, this is the only game I have ever been certain to give a 10/10 without a second thought. I love this game!

I bought this game in 2017 back when it was released because it is a Supergiant Games and I am drawn to the music and art that the game studio is known for (such as Bastion and Transistor) But I kinda procrastinated from playing the game because it was too weird of a game concept for me. Is it a basketball game? is it a visual novel? is it hard to master and your choices in the story matters? YES to all of that. I think this is the same reason not many people gave Pyre a chance, because it is too intimidating to actually play it. I am a casual gamer overall, I am slow at reading and I am not into basketball-like games but I have to admit, this game is amazing. Like many in the review section, I am here to wholeheartedly recommend this game, it is one of those games that leave a strong impression on me and will haunt me for months to come. I understand that the game may look confusing to outsiders who have only seen gameplay. But once you decided to take the plunge and actually give the game a shot, it will grab you by the balls and take you on a ride that you likely wont forget.
If it makes the experience any better and you only care about the story, I would reccomend playing the game on easy mode. No dishonor in that. I started the game on easy mode myself but become so absorbed in to the world and gameplay that I decide to crank up the difficulty. Believe me when I say that regardless of how you feel about the basketball gameplay mechanic in Pyre, this game story is worthy of your attention. It doesnt matter if you are slow with reading, just play the game at your own pace, because after I finished it, I desperately want Supergiants to make sequel for their games.

[h1] Pyre [/h1]

Pyre is the third game released by Supergiant Games, and it's by far the most experimental out of the four games that they've created thus far. It's through and through a visual novel with a dash of competitive sports mixed into it. You will be spending the vast majority of your time listening and reading about the lore, characters, and world of Pyre rather than actually playing it. So, fair warning: If you dislike visual novels, or if you're just the kind of person who'd rather not read a lot while playing your games, then I would advise that you think twice about buying this game. With that out of the way, let's talk about Pyre, and whether or not I think it's worth playing.

Short answer, maybe, but with a strong leaning toward yes. Let me explain. Just like with any games created by Supergiant Games, it's going to look great and sound great. It's excellently written, and the sports mini-game was done well enough that it ended up being the highlight of the experience for me; It's not perfect by any means, and I can definitely see a lot of people being frustrated and put off by certain aspects of it. Thankfully, I didn't have any personal problem with it and was able to adapt to its novel controls and gameplay. There are also light RPG elements thrown in here like having the ability to level up characters and choosing basics builds for them and being able to buy and sell talismans to better enhance your athletes. There are a total of 26 games that you could play in, and they're spread out periodically between moderately lengthy reading sections. And that's pretty much it for the gameplay department. Let's move on to the story and characters.

To put it bluntly, this is the category where I have the most contention with this game. Just like what I stated earlier, a good sizeable chunk of Pyre will be spent reading and learning about the characters, their motivations, and the history that influences their world. So, it stands to reason that if you don't find all of it compelling and interesting, you're going to have quite an unengaging time with the story, and the game overall to a certain extent because of it. And that's where I fall on this list. In short, I didn't appreciate the story very much. Don't get me wrong; It's not badly written in any way, far from it. It's just personally, it's not my cup of tea. Strangely, I struggle to make sense of why, but it could be a combination of personal reasons and preferences rather than anything objective. That's why even though I didn't personally enjoy the story and world of Pyre, I can at least see why many people would.

All in all, Pyre is a wonderful title with some of the best visuals, colors, and music that you could find in a video game. It's definitely my least favorite out of the four games from Supergiant Games, but even their worse received game is still one of the best experiences that this genre and this industry has to offer; That's how freaking talented this team is; They punch so far above their weight that it's not even funny. With my praises over, let's draw this review to a close. Due to the novelty of the game both in its story and gameplay, I'm going to recommend buying it on sale for a guaranteed safe purchase.

I've put off playing Pyre for years just because it looks *so weird* compared to Bastion and Transistor. I'm kicking myself for that -- this is easily my favorite of those three.

The combination of visual novel -- brilliantly written, I might add, with some of the most careful characters and worldbuilding in any fantasy game -- and the best variant of SNES NBA Jam one can imagine makes for one of the most enthralling and creative games I've ever had the pleasure of playing. It sucks that Pyre is the black sheep of Supergiant's games. (I guess; I mean, they've all been critical and commercial successes, looks like.)

One extra bit that really elevates Pyre is just how balanced everything is. I spent the first few hours fighting myself trying to declare that certain characters stank, but that isn't the case. The game forces you to change up your character roster -- your active team is always three of nine possible characters -- and as you gain experience with each one their strengths become evident. (I *might* argue that Sandalwood truly is weak: His strengths tend to rely on taking advantage of issues with enemy AI. He certainly remains my least favorite.) Throughout the game, you're also permanently losing members of your team who are actively being freed from the world of exile you all inhabit. Trying to choose who will be freed is a strange dichotomy of regret and pride.

Don't skip out on Pyre just because it looks like a weird basketball game. It truly is a gem and one of the finest fantasies of its time.

SuperGiant always has the talent to create exceptional worlds and their effect into building the lore is second to none. The game looks strange at first because you would never expect a game that mixes many different genres together and make it work so well.

Losing isn't a game over but does introduce many side effects into your story. And it's just that... it is your story whether you win or lose.

The only thing that could be balanced out a little better would be passing the orb between characters. Most players will just control one character with the orb and try to outmaneuver the opponent by slipping past their defenses instead of passing the orb. When you pass the orb your previous character is now defenseless out in the open so this actively discourages passing.

Overall if you enjoy other games by SuperGiant, this game is one you won't want to miss either.

It's not a bad game at all, I personally didn't enjoy it too much.

The crux of the issue for me was the gameplay. It wasn't terrible but I just didn't enjoy it very much. I'm not sure if this is going to be a game for everyone. Also, with Bastion and Transistor, I found the combat pretty good, but the games were really carried by the story and music. I felt those aspects weren't as strong or at least they didn't resonate as much with me in Pyre.

I'm here for more of the Supergiant hype after Hades became my favourite game ever played, and man, this game is worth your time as well. The celestial sportsball and the adventure around it delivers hard. The gameplay itself is varied from the several races with their own strengths, whether it be good stage control, ability to make it to the opposing Pyre (goal), or their ability to eliminate opponents and create openings. The teambuilding aspect adds some spice to these classes, with charms available to compliment your character's gameplan and simple skilltrees similar in complexity to a lengthy board game. There's a local versus mode available which could be a lot of fun, as long as you can find someone who knows the game or wants to learn the basics.

The gameplay of the Rites is just one part of the campaign as you play through a text-based adventure. There's a lot of time between matches to get invested in the lore and spruce up your team, and you can be pretty excited for the Rites when they finally do happen. Choices do matter, and the story DOES progress, win or lose, but I wouldn't call it the reassuring push-until-you-make-it story that Hades is [spoiler]due to story elements that add a race against time to the journey. I think they were going for the same single player experience as the original Pikmin, where playing well can reward you with the best ending, and set up for an incentive to replay the game[/spoiler].

In any case, the story really moves along and kept me hooked, and the fun of rematching teams that grow stronger and smarter alongside you is the same kind of fun I get from my favourite fighting games. Pyre is about the journey, and there's a wealth of tight gameplay and rad characters to make it worthwhile.

While I'm here gushing, Hades is also a good one to play, although I don't have it on Steam.

This is definitely the red-headed step-child of the Supergiant library of games, but doesn't deserve to be. It's every bit as fantastic and amazing as anything else they have ever made. Honestly, I can't think of another game out there even similar to this one, which is probably one of the reasons it had trouble getting attention. People like things that are familiar and this game is anything but.

Despite all that, I can't recommend it enough. It's really something else entirely.

It is a mystery to me why Pyre is the least favorite game for Supergiants fans. It has an intriguing story, unique gameplay and the lore someone put a lot of effort into.

The game is not very long but it can be replayed to create different stories for each character and to learn more about your friends with each new run.

For me, interacting with the characters and see them getting friendlier with each other was the best part. I would define this game as a visual novel most of all. The gameplay does look like an American football simulator but I can't see anything bad about it (though I'm not a fan of sport games). Characters’ distinctive skills and the growing strength of the enemies keeps you so far from being bored.

The emotional side of the game felt interactive and made everyone so real. The plot forces you to make irreversible decisions which may haunt you or, on the contrary, fill you with hope. I wish more games had such a great narrative.

Noxalas!

Pyre is quite possibly my favorite game of all time.

It's tough to explain. It's a hard sell. I get why people don't get it. It's a visual novel, wasteland rugby, game about emotions and loss... but it's just so unique, and beautiful, and full of experiences that I just have never had in any other game that I still feel so strongly about this game years after it came out.

I'm replaying it and trying to make different decisions than I did the first time around. It's tough to make them because I instinctually want to make the same choices I did the first time around. But every time I walk away from a new choice, I have new characters giving me new dialogue sharing their thoughts about what I just did... and I get to experience great dialogue I'd never seen before, and I just fall in love with the game all over again.

Win or lose, the game will continue. I get so emotionally invested in every match because I never know the outcome and I just want people to be happy. Playing on this game's Ironman equivalent (True Nightwing difficulty) has made every match so intense, so stressful... I wouldn't have it any other way.

I recommend the game to everyone. I fully get if you don't like it. All I ask is that you try.

Pyre is an amazing game though sometimes you wonder certain things

I advise you come knowing that there is a really a lot of dialogue for the first part of the game you spent like 5 minutes in rite and 10 minutes reading (for about 8 rites and there are optional dialogues that give you buffs so add another 2 to 5 min)if you use the superfast dialogue option it can be reduced to 3 to 5 minutes depending how much the wagon has to travel the for the later half it reduces the dialogue to 5 minutes normal and 3 minutes with fast because of travel
The duration of the game is excelent in my opinion you reach a satifactory point without getting tired of the rites but replayability as much as the dialogues change in the later half the first half is a torture of having your thumb pressing the space bar and because there are certain optional dialogues that give you buffs you have even more text
after that i think it is a really great game though you rarely encounter a rite where you say it is bs because the enemies spawn next to the orb and because of that have enough stamina to run from the orb to your pyre after that the difficulty is all over the place i found the mid game a little harder than the endgame and the first part of the game they treat you like a joke and don't come tell me the titan stars solve the problem they give so little xp that if you lose you lose more xp than what you win by winning so you never end up using them unless in truenightwings mode where you are required at least 3

Fantastic. One of my favorite stories I've ever seen in a game, the characters are lovable, the music (including the ending theme that changes based on the decisions you make) is incredible, and I surprisingly found myself really enjoying the gameplay as well despite my general dislike of sports/sports games. It's been a long time since a game has brought me to tears multiple times, and I think that one of the greatest things Pyre has going for it is how impactful your choices feel; everything has a consequence. The hardest difficulty was enough of a challenge to keep me playing while also not being frustrating enough to make me put down the game (there are always ways to prevail). That being said, I like that Pyre doesn't require you to always win to progress; sometimes winning isn't your best option, another way that your choices are integral to the way that your story unfolds. Overall a really special experience with tons of replayability and a versus mode for when you're tired of the campaign.

Pyre is... outstanding, basically. But it's a hard sell based on description alone. Simply put it's just a fantasy visual novel with sport-game elements. Doesn't sound too compelling, right?.. But it's hard not to love the story, the characters, the music, and the occasional gameplay when it happens inbetween long stretches of brilliantly written dialogues. But is it better then Bastion and Transistor? Well... it depends?

In terms of lore, characters and world-building it' THE best Supergiant Games' game. It makes you care for real. Music may not seem as strong as it used to be in previous two games at first, but it grows on you in time as you approach the end. Oh, and the Voice... Brilliantly done! No other game before has created such powerful sense of anticipation (jitters even) before the matches. Small stretches of intense gameplay are served to you rarely, but make you feel like you HAVE to do your best for the sake of your team. Even so, failure is also an option! You're never really forced to prevail if you don't want to, and the story will accept it and go on. Game will respect your decisions and the outcome will be yours, and your only. Even the final song will be composed of bits of story you chose to happen in your way.

Now, said that I must admit this game is far from perfect still. It makes you read tons and tons of dialogues without voiceovers. And the actual gameplay during the rites may or may not be to one's liking. I find it hard to imagine anyone would regret spending 20-30 hours on this journey, but some people might just not have the time, or hate reading (which I actually do!) lots of text. Also this game is quite unlike Bastion, Transistor (my absolutely favourite one) and Hades in too many ways, so just keep that in mind. Visual novel, not ARPG!

Now... If you don't hate road stories and care for atmosphere and plot more then for raw gameplay, then just buy it and play it. But if you're looking for fight and grind then seek elsewhere. Hades, perhaps?

I long avoided Pyre despite my love of Supergiant Games' other projects, Bastion, Transistor, and Hades. Many had stated that it was just a weird fantasy sports game, and to their credit, it kind of is. But it is so much more than that. It is a visual novel, which will not be for everyone. You read much of the story, but you also make choices that have very real effect over it. The fantasy sport (known as The Rites) is essentially a mini-game that one must play at various points throughout the story, and is indeed intertwined with how to beat the game and succeed in the story. The Rites are enjoyable, have good variety to the variables within them, and are both easy to play and difficult to master. The characters are wonderful, the world is fun to discover and explore, and the story has kept me enthralled. The reading is mostly through enjoyable dialogue, although some of the world history is unfortunately doled out in passages from a history book, which may have worked better as cutscenes, but that is a minor quibble. Beyond that, I have no complaints. I wish I had not picked this game up on sale, as Supergiant Games deserves every penny for the creativity and fun that they inject every game with, and Pyre is no exception!

Amazing visual novel - one of the best rpg experiences I have had in a long time. It is refreshing to play a game where the characters, writing, and setting are the clear focus. It seems that most AAA devs these days like to spend all their time on the graphics and/or microtransactions/lootboxes/etc. to the detriment of everything else. Well done, Supergiant, you have done it again.

What does freedom mean to you?

As every Supergiant game, Pyre is beautiful, weird, fun, and interesting, It's like a fusion of a visual novel, fantasy rpg and… basketball? Yeah I know it sounds really weird, lmao.

At first I wasn't convinced on the gameplay, but at mid/later levels it becomes more fun, it's a different take on basketball games with added fantasy elements and powers, you can also toggle different modifiers to make it more challenging as is tradition.
But that is just one part of the gameplay element, the other part is RPG stats, items and upgrades, a bunch of lore, decisions, dialog and interactions that make everything a delightful experience.

You get to know a variety of characters, races, relationships and little interactions between them. I found them really charming. The history is about freedom, companionship and an optimistic stance on revolution, and what it means to our different characters (and you).

The art is beautiful! music, atmosphere, visuals, art direction and character design are top notch as always, one of my favorite tracks is this one . (Also every song featuring Darren Korb and Ashley Barrett)

Give Pyre a try, it's different, but beautiful and interesting nonetheless.

[spoiler] To be able to indulge one's curiosities and passions, at least the ones that cause no harm to others, without the constant threat of judgment and reprisal. Freedom means not being made a criminal for what you know, or whom you love, or what you choose to think, or not to think. [/spoiler]

I usually love Supergiant games. The artstyle and music is very Supergiant-esque, but game is hard to recommend. It's a weird blend of visual novel + sports game. Gameplay is a big turn-off for me. I'm not usually a big sports game type person, so I might be biased here and if you like ball-passing type games, you might enjoy this. Definitely not my thing and not what I was expecting considering the genre of other Supergiant games. I feel like out of all Supergiant games, this is the black sheep of the bunch.

I highly recommend picking up the game to play even if you're not that into sports games because the experience is really leaning more towards its story, music, world-building, and characters compared to the gameplay. While I want to say it's such a masterpiece of a story, there have been some things to be desired. Despite this, I found no flaws; only missed potential, so Pyre is still leagues above other game stories that also have missed potential on top of flaws.

You can play with the easiest difficulty, change difficulties whenever, and even restart a match if you think you'll lose soon, so it's extremely forgiving. Once you do beat the game, you unlock the hardest difficulty, which is for people who do like the sports gameplay because it removes the ability to change difficulties and restart a match while adding some other challenges, making it more unique than facing a tougher A.I. and higher stakes. What's not made obvious until you start playing is that you don't have to win a single match. Your story is unique to you, and failing to win is one story.

Without spoiling the story, there isn't a perfect ending. There's no abrupt ending that leaves much to interpretation like I thought. The facts are told as heartwarming and as cold as they are. It's just like in sports; you win some, you lose some. This is why there is no perfect ending, but nonetheless, I'm proud to have gotten the ending I got. It was customized on my choices aside from the fact of what prevents it from being a perfect ending, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Hey you! Yes, you! Join the Rite Club Discord! We are always looking for more people to join, it's a shockingly small community for such a lovely game. Do you want to get better and have fun trying new strategies and team combinations? Are you more of a casual player but can't find others to play with who match up well against you? Either way, this is your #1 hub to organize some steam remote play or even just get advice for your True Nightwing playthrough!

Best of all, we have a Rite Club every single Sunday, streamed and narrated by the incredible LidsVids, where viewers can force special rules upon the players as far as what characters or masteries they play, or the arena they play on.

This is my second favorite game of all time, with wonderful characters, a multifaceted storyline, gorgeous art and music, and some of the most original gameplay you'll ever find. I really appreciate all the work that the community members have put in to keep the game alive, and the competitive scene is fascinating.
