Pyre is a 2017 action role-playing video game developed and published by Supergiant Games. It was released for Microsoft Windows, Linux, macOS and PlayStation 4, released in July 2017. Elements from sports games were incorporated to the title’s gameplay. It was the third game developed by Supergiant following Transistor (2014) and the game received generally positive reviews upon release.
The game takes place in a high fantasy setting. The story is told through on-screen narrative passages that include a hyperlink-type system used by the player-character to explore the story further. In addition to guiding the exiles during “Rites” which resemble a sports game, the Reader must determine how to help support or improve the party, by performing activities such as scavenging for supplies, learning more of the world’s lore, or mentoring the exiles to improve their abilities.1
