After a few delays, the third and final episode of our Supergiant Deep Look is here, with an examination of 2017's sleeper hit Pyre. A curious blend of visual novel, RPG, and sports, Pyre follows a group of exiles called the Nightwings, as they attempt to earn the right to escape a purgatorial plane called The Downside...through some sick slam dunks.

It's another Deep Dive episode as Alva and Robert sift through What Remains of Edith Finch, Giant Sparrow's quirky narrative adventure about a young woman returning home to delve into her family's tragic history. This episode is heavy on spoilers, so you've been warned.
