    Are games like Bastion playable on the new 12" retina MacBook?

    Sorry I can't give a more relevant response, but it plays beautifully on my iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. #

    Seriously though, I am of the opinion that it will be absolutely fine, given that things like GTA 4, Civ 5, and DOTA 2 have been shown to be perfectly playable on the machine. Since Bastion is a top down isometric view game, and it isn't exactly cutting edge in the graphics department, it should be fine.

    But I don't have mine yet so can't give you a real experience answer.

    Hi,

    2d games that don't tax the GPU are perfectly playable. I've tested Rimworld and the old Baldurs Gate IE games, all fine.

    I've also tested Bastion just now since you asked and it runs very smoothly.

    This was on the 1.3 version; but I'm pretty sure 1.1 will be exactly the same.

    Cheers!

    Great to hear, thanks!
    Can't wait for my 1.3/512 to arrive.
