Supergiant’s next game goes all sci-fi


Supergiant Games is the indie team that brought us Bastion. The action-RPG caused a bit of a stir because it was downright incredible. If you haven’t played it yet and you still need to buy a copy, then you’re in luck: The Humble Bundle has just started weekly Humble specials and, wouldn’t you know, Bastion is the first title to be featured. So basically, you can pay $1 for Bastion right now.

But Bastion aside, what’s the new game about? It’s called Transistor and it’s another action-RPG only this time it’s set in a futuristic city and stars a female protagonist. Our leading lady comes across a mysterious and powerful weapon known only as the “Transistor”. She came across the weapon because some crazy people were trying to kill her with it. Now that she has the weapon in her possession, more crazy people are trying to take it away from her.

Supergiant Games is aiming for a 2014 release date, so there’s still quite a wait. They also haven’t settled on platforms as yet. Hit the jump to see the game’s debut trailer. Get a load of that futuristic city; so pretty.

How great is that running animation?
