Transistor - (by SupergiantGames)[Universal](From the Studio that created Bastion)



Quote:
We are very, very excited to reveal today a new game we’ve been working on here at Supergiant, a science-fiction-themed action RPG we’re calling Transistor. We’ll have an early build playable this week at PAX East at our booth #892, and right now, we have our reveal trailer! Check it out and read on.


Quote:
Transistor invites players to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as they explore a stunning futuristic city. We’re designing our next game to seamlessly integrate thoughtful strategic planning into a fast-paced action experience, complete with our studio’s signature melding of responsive gameplay and rich atmospheric storytelling. All of us from the Bastion development team are working together again on this new project, with the aid of a handful of talented new people who’ve joined us since Bastion’s launch.

Quote:
In Transistor, players assume the role of a young woman who gains control of a powerful weapon after a mysterious group of assailants nearly kills her with it. Now she must fight from street to street against forces that will stop at nothing to recover the weapon. During the course of the adventure, players will piece together the Transistor’s mysteries as they pursue its former owners.

We expect Transistor to be released in early 2014. We have not yet decided on which platform or platforms the game will be available for.

We know you’ll have a lot of questions about Transistor, so we’ll be putting together a FAQ that addresses them, as well as answering more via Twitter and Facebook — and in person at PAX East this week! And now that the cat’s out of the bag, we’ll be keeping you posted on how development is coming along in the weeks and months to come. We can’t wait to hear what you think!

Looks good but... A female protagonist?

Anyways, she reminds me of Cloud, with giant sword and the bike. Should still be instabuy for me, but i always preferred games where i could play a male avatar.

To me, that came off as really sexist. It actually kind of hurt my feelings when you wrote that; it was like reading "seems like a cool game, but I play as a girl? Men are so much better."

Yeah this did come as sexist dude. I'm sure you didn't mean it to come off that way but maybe a little more perspective is needed.

Anyway game looks great and I couldn't be more excited

Every model of reality has margins where it begins to run out of explanatory steam, where we can see its problems and limitations
