A US airman in Afghanistan going by the name of Richard on Reddit, was given a really great present by Supergiant Games in the form of Bastion on disc. According to the military fellow, the internet speeds where he is deployed are terrible, and after trying to purchase the game through both Steam and D2D, he gave up, and wrote the developer to see if a retail copy would be released soon. In response, the studio’s creative director Greg Kasavin sent Richard an email stating that while there were no plans to release the game on disc, he was making an exception for him, considering the situation. Kasavin’s only request, was that Richard purchase the game through Steam when he finally gets to return home. Kudos, to Supergiant. This was very nice thing to do, indeed. Thanks, Neowin.
