Supergiant made me happy and sad with Bastion, but the only thing that would truly make me sad is if their next game failed to arrive on my PC, your PC and everybody else’s PC. We now know that the game is called Transistor and there’s a trailer below but the release platforms haven’t been confirmed yet. It’ll be playable at PAX East and here’s how the story begins:
…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.
Studio co-founder Amir Rao recently said that the team felt they could ‘do anything’ and judging by the trailer, they’re doing something not a million miles removed from Bastion, which is no bad thing.
Music with vocals! Isometric action! A big sword! And maybe some side-scrolling action as well! Will there be a narrator?
Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee this will come to PC, or anything else for that matter.
We expect Transistor to be released in early 2014. We have not yet decided on which platform or platforms the game will be available for.
It’s a Game Gear game, isn’t it?
