Bastion developer SuperGiant Games have revealed their new game Transistor and have announced that it will be playable at PAX East, you can see the reveal trailer for the game embedded above.
As well as the trailer that shows some gameplay, the post also detailed some of the story behind the game:
“We are very, very excited to reveal today a new game we’ve been working on here at Supergiant, a science-fiction-themed action RPG we’re calling Transistor. We’ll have an early build playable this week at PAX East at our booth #892”
“Transistor invites players to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as they explore a stunning futuristic city. We’re designing our next game to seamlessly integrate thoughtful strategic planning into a fast-paced action experience, complete with our studio’s signature melding of responsive gameplay and rich atmospheric storytelling.”
“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.”
I’m always a fan of developers who announce a game and immediately show gameplay, it shows that they are confident in their game and believe in what they show. After the huge success of Bastion I’m sure many of you can’t wait to play Transistor, the gameplay seems similar to Bastion but the new art style does look very cool indeed. I’m interested to say the least.
Let me know in the comments what you think of the trailer.
Transistor is set for a 2014 release with no platforms announced yet.
