First Impressions: Transistor

Supergiant Games the people that brought you Bastion recently released their followup to game, Transistor. While in no way a sequel to Bastion, Supergiant’s signature style is all over the game, and boy does that make it an amazing experience. Transistor takes place in a futuristic metropolis called Cloudbank where technology is completely integrated into the world. Cloudbank is completely democratic society, early on in the game you find that you can vote on the weather forecast for the next day. It is unclear whether or not these votes really make a difference in the game, but it really sets the tone for the world of Cloudbank.

Transistor starts right in middle of the action, giving the player a feeling curiosity that keeps them exploring and thirsty for information. This thirst is steadily quenched as your sword converses with you, allowing you to slowly piece together whats going on. The gameplay in Transistor is captivating, the action seamlessly transitions between two different battle types. Regardless of which battle type you choose, or how you customize your abilites, Transistor is a fun and engaging game.
