Supergiant Reveals Transistor

Bastion developer Supergiant games offers a first look at Transistor, a science fiction-themed action/RPG they plan to show at PAX East, where they'll have an early playable build. In the meantime they offer a Reveal Trailer showing off some gameplay, and here's what they are revealing for now:

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 Transistorís mysteries as they pursue its former owners.

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.

On a related note, Humble Mumble announces The Humble Weekly Sale, offering Bastion as a pay-what-you-want offering.

What??! No kickstarter? Where are they gettin' the munneez??!!!11 one.

I agree with Nin, looks like Bastion meets FF7. Which isn't necessarily bad. I dig the art style. But Bastion game play didn't grab me, despite my love of ARPGs.

Looks kinda neat, but some of the gameplay looks like a reskinned Bastion...
