Transistor free on Epic Games Store right now

Transistor is free for the next two weeks on the Epic Games Store and it is my humble opinion that you should be playing it right now, because it is a gem. Currently my favourite of Supergiant Games's all-excellent lineup (with wizard-sportsball adventure Pyre a very close second), it's part action RPG, part turn-based tactical combat, and all classy. Set in a jazzy art-deco cyberworld,…

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

Pyre: Bastion Devs Announce New RPG For 2017

Supergiant Games, the folks behind Bastion and Transistor, today announced their third game - Pyre [official site]. They call it a "party-based RPG", telling a story about a group of exiles trying to complete tasks that might just let them be absolved and return home. Pyre is due in 2017 and SuperGiant don't have too much to say about it right now, but have a…

You May Play: Transistor’s Out Next Month

Transistor, Supergiant's second game and follow-up to the chatty Cathy that was Bastion, is almost upon us. I don't mean that in a stalkery murderous way, but in a release datey way. The strategic sci-fi RPG has already tickled Nathan to the point of hyperventilation, and the rest of us can join in the wheezing and gasping on May 20th. Can someone get Nathan a…

Talk Swordy To Me: 18 Mins Of Supergiant’s Transistor

Oh goodness gracious me oh my oh tickle me red and green and black and gold and all the colors of the cyberpunk noir rainbow, Bastion developer Supergiant's Transistor is looking magnificent. Sure, at first glance it doesn't seem to have fallen far from the narration-prone, hack-'n'-slash-heavy tree, but there's no denying that this place feels just as uniquely alluring as Bastion's pastel paradise. Plus,…

Supergiant’s Transistor Will (Sorta) Have Multiplayer

Bastion was absolutely marvelous, and Transistor - aka, Bastion 2: Cyberpunk Boogaloo - very much looks to be following in its pathway summoning footsteps. But while surface-level similarities (a Logan-Cunningham-voiced narrator-type, bleak yet beautiful environments, a silent main character, isometric perspective, etc) might suggest a familiar experience, Supergiant definitely isn't sticking to Bastion's straight-and-narrow. Case in point: Transistor isn't entirely a solo affair. As part of a…

Voice Of The Voiceless: 15 Minutes Of Transistor

The first footage of Supergiant's Transistor suggested that the game would not be entirely dissimilar to the studio's splendid isometric smash 'em up, Bastion, although it did lack one of its predecessor's most distinctive features - the superb narration of Logan Cunningham. Total Biscuit captured fifteen minutes of the game at PAX East and has uploaded a version without commentary, so that another voice can…

Basti-Onward: Supergiant’s Next Game Is Transistor

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…
