Bastion developer Supergiant Games has announced its next project to be a sci-fi action RPG called Transistor.
“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,” said Supergiant’s Greg Kasavin in a blog post.
“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.”
The game is designed to “seamlessly integrate” fast-paced action with “thoughtful strategic planning” and “atmospheric storytelling.”
Transistor is due out in 2014 for undecided platforms.
