Supergiant Games Reveals Transistor

By Jonathan Barnes,
Today, Supergiant Games (makers of our 2011 XBLA Game of the Year, Bastion (Xbox 360)) have announced their next game, Transistor, a sci-fi action RPG which will be playable this week at PAX East.

Supergiant Games describes Transistor with the following:

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.
While a description is great, screenshots are worth at least 1,000 words a piece.

Transistor 1

Transistor 2

Transistor 3

Transistor 4

While screenshots are great, a trailer is worth at least 1,000 screenshots.

Since the game will be playable at PAX East, we'll be sure to light a fire under our representatives there and see if we can find out a bit more about Transistor!

Transistor is currently set for a 2014 release but does not have any platform announcements.

We've got the full list of Bastion (Xbox 360) achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
