by

The next game from Bastion developers Supergiant Games, Transistor, will be released on May 20.

You'll be able to get the game on PC, through Steam and the Supergiant Games website, and PlayStation 4. The price will be $19.99/£14.99 /€18.99.

There are no preorder options right now, although Supergiant says it's looking into the option. It also adds that, at launch, the game will feature an English voiceover and text in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese.

Transistor revolves around a young woman, who wields the titular Transistor sword and fights a sinister pursuing force. The game features both real-time combat and a planning screen, where you can pause the action to map out powerful combos.

I wonder what will come first:
A great steam sale,
playstation plus
or a humble bundle.
Whatever it is that will be how I get this game. Totally worth it at full price but I guarentee you one of those will happen within a year.

Is it wrong to dress in drag while you're playing this game?

Wasn't expecting it to be released this soon, but I loved Bastion and I cannot wait to play this game.


Anything made by Supergiant Games is going to be awesome!

Awesome, I loved Bastion and can't wait to grab this. I'll be preordering on Steam and probably the soundtrack too if it is as good as Bastion (highly likely from what I have heard so far).

It's releasing in May?  I wasn't expecting it so soon, but that's great.  I'll definitely be setting aside some time to play this one.

I thought Bastion was kinda overrated. I mean, it was OK but it definitely didn't live up to the hype once I actually started playing it.

Guess that Indie parity clause has shot Xbox in the foot.

This looks so gorgeous. I'm psyched. Also: it's being released much sooner than I expected. :) :) :) :)


Also: I hope it gets a Vita release...

I second that opinion. Bastion had pretty much the best music of any game I've ever played and gorge

@AyatollaofRnR  Can't be a timed exclusive.  Microsoft wouldn't allow it on their system because it violates their terms.  The game will either come out on the same day as the PS4 version or no Xbone version at all.  Obviously, the latter is the case here.

@sortajan  you should feel bad for feeling like a creep for that reason

@sortajan Yeah, nothing's creepier than controlling a fictional character that happens to have a different set of (hypothetical) reproductive organs.

I don't see why people let minute things like that hold them back from enjoying potentially wonderful things. Still to this day one of my favorite RPG games is the original Parasite Eve.

I didn't really mean to imply that you did, which is why I didn't directly reply to you.  I was mainly just pointing it out in general, because your post reminded me that there are quite a number of people who would, even in this scenario.
