Happy Year of the Dog!

By Greg Kasavin February 15 2018

The Year of the Dog is off to a rollicking start for us here at Supergiant! We've got a couple of exciting new items plus a bit of news to mark the occasion.

Pyre Dog Hoodie

First, by EXTREMELY POPULAR DEMAND, we’re pleased to present the official Pyre Dog Hoodie. This high-quality garment is embroidered with the Eight Stars of the Rites, and sports the distinctive colors of the venerable Nightwings. Available in a variety of sizes. Visit our Pyre Dog Hoodie Store Page for more!

Pyre Original Soundtrack Triple LP Set

Next is something that’ll be a real treat for any fan of Pyre's critically acclaimed musical score. The vinyl edition of the Pyre Original Soundtrack by Darren Korb is a triple LP set in a beautiful tri-fold jacket with original artwork by Supergiant’s art director, Jen Zee. Visit our Pyre Soundtrack Triple LP Store Page for more on that one! And stay tuned for more Pyre merch later this year.

Pyre in the Steam Lunar New Year Sale

For good measure, right now you can pick up Pyre for 50% off during Steam's Lunar New Year Sale! We were happy to hear from many new players across the world over the holidays. We love hearing about your unique stories and relationships formed through the game.

As for what's next for us, we promise to tell you all about it just as soon as we're ready!
