Yay! Bastion was great and I've been waiting to see what they'd come up with next. To see for yourself go here. It seems like a spiritual successor to Bastion with a bigger budget.

I'm assuming there is not going to be a "Building the Transistor".

From watching the trailer it seems very Bastion-esque.

Bastion meets Bioshock? I could get into that.

I'm actually surprised at how much is shown in there. And as a fan of Bastion, it should go without saying, I'm very much looking forward to this

Yeah, for an "early build" it's quite impressive.

So, can I just mail them some cash now?

To me, it just seems like Bastion meets more Bastion...

I wish this didn't look like it plays like Bastion. Please be different enough. I liked a lot about Bastion but gameplay was not one of those things.

It does indeed seem to have some aspects from Bastion, however I truly hope that it will have its own "personality" and will make our experience playing it somewhat unique. Apparently the protagonist goal is to protect the weapon she acquired, hopefully we will still get some variety of "effect" or "power" to customize it.

This cheered up my morning. I really didn't expect such a quick turnaround from that small of a studio.

Bring it on motherfucker. I will buy this immediately, no questions asked, price unseen on day one. I also really, really like the artist's (I forget her name) style and more of that is a-okay by me.

Well. Transistor probably set a new record, moving from announcement to the top of my most wanted list in record time. I really dig that trailer.

...How to build a Transistor?

Loved Bastion a lot. This game is looking mighty impressive so far. I really like the setting and the art never ceases to amaze me.

Very cool! My only problem right now is that the new game page I added (here) is giving a 404 error for some reason. So I can't fill in any info. :(

That music was amazing, I can't wait to hear what the final game sounds like. Is it weird I'm more into that than the game itself?

I could go for another game like that. I'm surprised it's a 2014 release though. I was thinking late 2013. But please, take your time. Bastion was pretty well polished.

They should definitely take their time to make the best possible product, keeping the trust of your customers is a must! Supergiant has won people heart with Bastion and it'll be a shame if they rushed and ruined their new game and reputation.

The artwork is gorgeous. Hope that the gameplay is a bit more involved than Bastion, that one lost its appeal for me over the course of a single playthrough.

Gotta love drum n bass in game trailers. So excited for this :)

I don't really understand the complaints about Bastion's 'gameplay' systems - I guess people found the hack & slash to be a little repetitive after a while? Tight controls and weapon variety are the things I remember and I loved every minute of it. Could it be better, especially with a little bit more originality in how the combat or enemies work? Sure but that's not a complaint for Bastion, more of an expectation for Transistor.

If they would only change setting, narrative and story and keep a similar fighting system with some added nuance, that would be fine. What really intrigues me is the female protagonist, I think that's absolutely awesome: especially if you consider all of the self-fulfilling prophecy bullshit other publishers still keep throwing around.

Judging from what the trailer seems to be going for is a little bit more focus on visual storytelling and story in general - I doubt the narrator will come back for this one, although I wouldn't necessarily exclude that possibility. They might have a really cool cyberpunk world and I have every bit of confidence in them that they can fill it with interesting stuff. Really excited.

It looks really neat. The only worry I have is that it looks to be a bit too informed by the gameplay design and look of Bastion. I hope that this game is a unique experience and doesn't simply feel like a 'spiritual successor' to Bastion.

#25 Posted by Tonch (24 posts) -

According to their Twitter, Transistor will have a greater focus on "strategic planning" than Bastion did.

So I guess it's less "hack away a bunch". Either way I'm interested; the trailer was cool.

I love me some stupid big swords.

Artwork and song both really beautiful. Cant wait for this!

Really hope they also bring it to OnLive to follow up Bastion. =)

#28 Posted by TooWalrus (13130 posts) -

Oh, god damn it. I keep watching this trailer, and the more I watch it, the more I think they're making a game specifically for me, personally.

How about "Powering the Transistor"? Charging maybe? Had that rattling around my brain while watching the reveal trailer. As it is Supergiant Games' 2nd game, and with obvious comparisons to Bastion going to be made, it would be very interesting to hear about the changes in their processes they have to/will make versus when they made Bastion.

I played it at PAX yesterday. The demo was around 15 minutes long. I came away really impressed, and it seems like everyone else really loved it too (the line was 3 hours long if you didn't get there as soon as the show started, which I fortunately did). The music, voice work, and aesthetic go very well together, and you have quite a few options in combat for attacking enemies. Really can't wait for this one.

i'm so glad they're not just making a re-skinned bastion, gameplay looks fantastic, at this point the only games i'm excited for are this and animal crossing. I still enjoy playing frozen synapse and the similar but more action-oriented mechanics that this seems to have are really appealing. i just hope the level design is good enough that there's no fatigue. recent resurgence of strategy games and its apparent impact is pretty exciting

Well this definitely just got more interesting for me.

Here is the entire PAX demo with just direct feed game audio the entire time. The game sounds amazing.
