Have you tried Transistor, the second game from the Bastion team?
I've tried both Transistor and Pyre. Both are wondeful games in their own rights, and I have a special place for Transistor because of its use of programming as a game/world mechanic. They're not explaining it, either: it's just the way of things!
Neither compares to Bastion, in my eyes, however. Can't tell you what it is, exactly. Everything's good, but those two have no... it, you know. The it that made Bastion special.
If you're looking to play, there's probably a hobby shop near you that makes groups.
Thanks for the advice! I'll check those out.
