'Bastion' Developer Supergiant Goes Sci-Fi With Open World RPG 'Transistor'

After picking up a seemingly endless list of awards for their action-adventure "Bastion," indie developer Supergiant Games has raised the curtain on "Transistor," a cyberpunk RPG, which they'll be showing off this weekend at PAX East.

Supergiant released the first trailer for "Transistor" on Tuesday, revealing the first gameplay from the isometric RPG (which apparently switches things up with a bit of sidescrolling). Teasing out the first story details in a blog post yesterday, "Transistor" is about:

...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.

The trailer suggest that the assassins are snuffing out prominent voices in the futuristic city, but how and why "Transistor's" heroine is important remains to be seen.

You can check out some stills from the game below. Supergiant will be at PAX East this weekend talking about "Transistor," which they say gamers can look for sometime in early 2014.
