"During the second day of PAX East, I had the opportunity to chat with Supergiant Games’ creative director Greg Kasavin about Transistor, the upcoming spiritual successor to 2011′s critically acclaimed Bastion. Transistor and Bastion share many similarities–the beautiful art style, gravelly narrator–but Transistor’s setting, tone and protagonist have seen some interesting changes.
From my time with the game, I noticed Supergiant Games may have learned a thing or two from Bastion, despite the game being so well received. With this in mind, during my interview with Kasavin I tried to learn some of the inspirations and goals behind Transistor, as well as garner some tidbits of information regarding the game’s protagonist, Red."
