Transistor is a phenomenal thing in places. Just tremendous. Sometimes overwhelming in its cleverness and subtlety. It had me on the verge of tears from both laughter and a creeping, ever-constricting stranglehold on my heart, and a talking sword (given life by the sultry tones of Bastion narrator Logan Cunningham) was responsible for most of it. This is a very different story from Bastion, arguably a much more personal one. It is, however, also a more natural progression from the latter’s painterly walk on sunshine than its dusky cyberpunk setting might suggest.

All that said, Transistor is a strong tale and a very good game. But it could’ve been much better. Here’s wot I think.

title="Permanent Link to Transistor looking better than ever in new launch trailer">Transistor_19-mar-2013_02-610x343







Consider this your official notice to get pumped for Transistor s imminent release. Even if you didn t play Bastion, every little bit we ve seen of Supergiant Games sophomore effort so far has looked excellent recognizably from the same studio, but different enough to carry its own surprises. The recently released launch trailer gives us few new details about the game, and it's looking better than ever.



With its red-haired singer heroine and her talking sword companion (voiced by Bastion s narrator Logan Cunningham), Transistor always gave off a futuristic noir vibe. This newest trailer leans in that direction even more, setting up the plot with a mysterious crime, and four problems, bad guys that we can assume you ll take on throughout the game.



The gameplay footage also shows off the game s Turn mechanic, which stops combat and transforms it into a semi-turn-based game. According Cassandra s hand-on time with the game at PAX East, it s one of the main differentiators between Transistor and Bastion.



Transistor launches on Steam May 20, and we'll have a review posted then.

title="Permanent Link to Transistor and soundtrack now available for pre-order">transistor





From the makers of Bastion is pretty much all I need to know before I buy Transistor, Supergiant Games sophomore effort. The sci-fi themed role-playing game is coming out May 20, and starting today you can pre-order it from Steam or Supergiants website. Even better, we now know that the game s promising soundtrack will drop on the same day. Drop, because that s what I m told albums do.

Transistor s protagonist, Red, is a singer who comes across a powerful, sentient sword. Supergiant leaned into the singer part and created a bunch of original music for the game more than 60 minutes, to be exact. If you ve played Bastion or watched the trailer for Transistor, you ll know why we re excited about it:



The album is by Supergiant s Audio director Darren Korb and the vocals you hear are courtesy of Ashley Barrett. If you buy it digitally, you ll get it in MP3 and FLAC formats. If you buy it from Supergiants website, you ll also get a physical compact disc, which has been fully remastered and comes with an all-new bonus track in addition to the existing 22 tracks.

The game alone will cost you $20, while the game and soundtrack will cost $30.

Hey! If you enjoyed Bastion you might be interested in our next game, Transistor, which now has its very own Steam page.

Every member of the team that created Bastion stuck together to make this next game. We hope you enjoy it at least as much!

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 paper bag?

Ah, the butt slide: gaming's most seemingly inefficient, not particularly flattering 'stylish' maneuver.

As a semi-longtime games journo (and hobbyist coal miner), I’ve seen my fair share of diamonds in the rough. Some eventually go the distance and gleam like a million smiling suns, while others… well, they don’t fare so well. And yet, even after losing countless hopefuls (and also canaries), I’m not ready to give up hope on promising upstarts like Lemma. The rune-encrusted run-leaper has evolved significantly since Adam first highlighted it, combining the path-producing footfall’s of something like Bastion with Mirror’s Edge‘s feather-like grace and, er, color scheme. It still looks a little janky, but I’m ready to place two of my crossed fingers before its altar. New trailer below.

title="Permanent Link to Dota 2 can now be commentated by the smooth voice of the Bastion narrator">Bastion







Are you ready for some Doter? That's just one of the questions posed by Rucks, the narrator from Bastion. He's an old-timey sort of fella, and ain't got no truck with these kids' short-As. If you'd like your wizard killing narrated by his smooth, folksy tones, you can now grab the recently released Bastion Announcer Pack for Doter Dota 2.



As with other announcement packs, it replaces the voice of both the announcer and the mega-kill announcer with the Bastion's elderly guardian. You can see (and hear) the full round-up of his proclamations over at the Dota 2 wiki. He's got some pretty sharp words for anybody caught cussing.



The pack is currently available at 3.24 for the next 20 hours. After that, it'll default to the regular price of 6.49. It follows a series of other external game announcement packs, including Half-Life 2's Dr. Kleiner, Portal's GLaDOS, and - oddly enough - the extremely British AI from Defense Grid. In the future, a Stanley Parable narrator pack is also planned.



In addition to commentating on Dota's forests of fantasy, Rucks' voice actor Logan Cunningham is also working on Transistor, the next game from Bastion developers Supergiant Games. You can read Cass's preview of that game here.

Yep OK I would like this very much now please yes OK thank you

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, other bright spots – for instance, the entire combat system – crackle with intrigue, making this one to watch by any measure. And watch it you can, right this very moment. 18 whole minutes, in fact, just after the break.

title="Permanent Link to Transistor’s Reveal Trailer shows off stellar vocals set over sci-fi gameplay">Transistor





Transistor, the new action RPG from Bastion devs Supergiant Games, got a brand-new reveal trailer at last night’s Sony E3 press conference. Lost in a sci-fi cityscape and lugging a +1 Sword of Logan Cunningham, protagonist Red sings her way through piles of robot enemies.





The new trailer doesn’t show a lot of new gameplay above its PAX East footage. There are glimpses of some wild enemy design that prove Supergiant isn’t going to be rehashing any of its old Bastion assets. The pausable combat and stylish environments look great, but we didn’t see any information about the possible multiplayer elements hinted at by Supergiant’s Greg Kasavin earlier this year.



For a better look at Transistor, check out Cassandra Khaw’s hands-on preview of the game from PAX East.
