Bastion developer Supergiant Games has announced its next game, a sci-fi themed action RPG named Transistor, will be playable at PAX East 2013 this weekend. The developers promise that it will be fast-paced and have Supergiant's "signature melding of responsive gameplay and rich atmospheric storytelling."
Supergiant's blog also describes Transistor's premise: "players will 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. 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."
Transistor is due in early 2014, with platforms to be announced. Bastion eventually released on mobile, console, and desktop, so theoretically, the dystopian sky's the limit for Transistor.
