Supergiant Games took a lot of people by surprise with Bastion, an RPG with a warm voice and plenty of gameplay that really appealed to a large audience of gamers. Transistor was a title that garnered a lot of interest back during Sony's E3 last year, but as such it carries with it some pretty substantial expectations. For the most part, Transistor does succeed in meeting most, if not all of them.
Transistor is set in a futuristic city with elements of science fiction and fantasy mixed together. You take on the role of a young woman named Red, who has taken control of a powerful sentient weapon that a mysterious group of the city's elite wants for their own devices.
