Supergiant Games reveals ‘Transistor’


The next big thing from the developers behind the downloadable darling Bastion has just been revealed to the public, and its name is Transistor.

Main man Greg Kasavin, formerly of GameSpot, broke the news with the above trailer earlier today. Transistor, a science-fiction-themed action RPG, will have a playable build at this week’s PAX East.

What is it, exactly? We’ll let the man himself give you a brief description of the story

In Transistor, players assume the role of a young woman who gains control of a powerful weapon after a mysterious group of assailants nearly kills her with it. Now she must fight from street to street against forces that will stop at nothing to recover the weapon. During the course of the adventure, players will piece together the Transistor’s mysteries as they pursue its former owners.

The full Bastion team will be working on Transistor, as well as a few new friendly faces. Platforms have yet to be decided for this strategic action title, but expect a full release sometime in 2014.
