Sci-fi-themed action RPG from developer Supergiant Games, Transistor, has been discounted 80% on Steam. Previously, $19.99 USD, you can now pick up one of this generation’s best games for a mere $3.99 USD.

Additionally, you can also pick up the game plus the soundtrack package, with the same 80% discount, for $5.99 USD (it is normally $29.99 USD).

Been on an island getaway for the last three years and never heard of Transistor? Don’t sweat it — here’s an overview, courtesy of the game’s Steam page:

From the creators of Bastion, Transistor is a sci-fi themed action RPG that invites you to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as you fight through a stunning futuristic city. Transistor seamlessly integrates thoughtful strategic planning into a fast-paced action experience, melding responsive gameplay and rich atmospheric storytelling. During the course of the adventure, you will piece together the Transistor’s mysteries as you pursue its former owners.

Key Features

  • An all-new world from the team that created Bastion
  • Configure the powerful Transistor with thousands of possible Function combinations
  • Action-packed real-time combat fused with a robust strategic planning mode
  • Vibrant hand-painted artwork in full 1080p resolution
  • Original soundtrack changes dynamically as the action unfolds
  • Hours of reactive voiceover create a deep and atmospheric story
  • ‘Recursion’ option introduces procedural battles after finishing the story

Transistor first launched back on May 20, 2014 for PS4 and PC. It then released on Mac and Linux on October 30, 2014, before releasing on its last platform — iOS devices — on June 11, 2015. Personally, I think everything Supergiant Games touches is great, and highly recommend picking this up if you haven’t already.
