Pyre's fictional language has real linguistic roots

Pyre is the best game about strange rituals and fantasy sports ever. Sure, it's not exactly the most crowded market, but I can't get over how cool Supergiant's latest game is. It's full of interesting characters with solid writing, astounding art, and plenty of hot slam dunks. For lack of a better term, Pyre is lit.

Developer Supergiant Games is no slouch when it comes to worldbuilding. The studio's previous work on Bastion and Transistor featured settings and characters that brimmed with personality. Pyre's more of the same. Despite being set in a wasteland full of society's dregs and outcasts, it's awash with high contrast colors and likable rogues. Its locations feel realized and complete.
