HOWTO: Run Bastion on Windows 8

After playing the Bastion demo in Chrome’s Native Client I recently picked up a full copy care of ¬†Humble Bundle, only to have it crash immediately on startup on Windows 8.

Turns out the culprit is a missing XNA redistributable¬†- you can install it directly from Bastion’s install directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Bastion\xnafx31_redist.msi).

Happy Hunting!

    You’re a legend, thanks – bought this from the Humble Bundle as well & it was doing my head in.
