Supergiant Games’ Transistor Revealed


Supergiant Games' next project, Transistor, has been revealed in a new trailer and will be playable this week at PAX East. 

The heavily stylized trailer comments that every citizen of the game's world of Cloudbank has a voice yet the city's most influential people are being silenced. Transistor's protagonist, Red, is next in line to vanish and must battle against robotic enemies in a dynamic world similar to Bastion's isometric RPG universe, the game also seems to feature side-scrolling sections. 

Transistor will feature the focal talents of Logan Cunningham, who acted as Bastion's narrator though it's not yet known if he'll perform a similar role in this title. Darren Korb, Supergaint's audio director, is also scoring the game; one of Bastion's most noted features was it's music and if Transistor's trailer is anything to go by the studio look set to continue that tradition of audio excellence. 

The studio is best known for their work on Bastion, winner of numerous awards, and a game which we named one of our best games of 2011. If their previous game is anything to go by, we can expect Transistor to deliver much in the way of a good soundtrack and a story that doesn't consist of cliches. 

The title is due to be released in 2014 for unannounced platforms.
