Bastion Creator Unveils New Cyber-Dystopia Action Game: Transistor

on March 19, 2013 1:16 PM

If you like giant swords and cyberpunk dystopian futures, then look no further–Transistor may be the game for you. Supergiant Games–the makers of the critically acclaimed Bastionhave just unveiled the Transistor trailer, which you can see below along with some cool screenshots.

Transistor takes place in what looks like a beautiful but treacherous city called Cloudbank, where the outspoken tend to… disappear. The game centers around Red, a mysterious woman with a deadly and powerful sword that everyone seems to want. Transistor will task players with integrating strategy and trigger-finger action, and promises the rich storytelling players loved in Bastion.

Supergiant will also be putting together an FAQ made from the questions they receive via Facebook and Twitter, and will be showing off the game at PAX East this week.
