Supergiant Games has just revealed their next game following their acclaimed 2011 acclaimed game Bastion. Their next game will be called Transistor and is set in a Sci-Fi dystopian world. The science fiction RPG will feature a new cast of characters and a new style of gameplay with a focus on more strategic style as well as the fast-paced action from Bastion.
Here is an extract from Supergiant’s official blog:
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. All of us from the Bastion development team are working together again on this new project, with the aid of a handful of talented new people who’ve joined us since Bastion’s launch.
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.
It’s needless to say that I’m excited for the game since Bastion is a pretty amazing game. You can check out our review of Bastion for the PC here.
Transistor is expected to release in 2014 with no confirmed platforms.
