Supergiant Games to follow Bastion with new sci-fi ‘Transistor’ ARPG

Transistor

By on March 20, 2013 at 11:29 am

Supergiant Games, makers of the surprise hit Bastion, have announced that their next game is to be another ARPG by the name of Transistor. The game features a sci-fi setting, and players will take the role of a young woman who accidentally gains control of a powerful weapon. Take a gander at the reveal trailer below — if you’re lucky/wealthy enough to be attending PAX East this week, you’ll be able to play it for yourself.

Meanwhile, Bastion is on sale for the price of pay-what-you-want over at the Humble Bundle store this week.

Bastion was my goty so I’m looking forward to seeing how this turns out

 

The problem with that trailer is it all looks like a reskinned Bastion which would be a terrible thing considering this game’s potential…

 

What exactly does the A in ARPG stand for?

 

Action. Either that or aardvark, but I’m pretty sure it’s Action.

 

Bastion was good but this looks better in the sci-fi setting.

Yes! Action RPG.

Though I would play an Aardvark RPG.

 

The Humble Weekly Sale looks like an interesting idea. It’s just the one game (which was part of a previous bundle anyway) but if you pay enough you’ll get more stuff that available previously, and if you pay $25 or more you get a bunch of physical gear.

 

ElectroTyrian,

THANK-YOU!

I so did not see the collector’s edition gear.

*buys*…
