Transitioning to 'Transistor'

by G. Christopher Williams

8 September 2014

We discuss Supergiant Games's follow up to what many critics felt was the best game of 2011, considering if Transistor measures up to the legacy of Bastion.
 

Supergiant Games created an indie sensation with its 2011 game, Bastion. As a result, this year’s follow up, Transistor, had to contend with some big expectations from fans of the first game.

This week we discuss Transistor and how it measures up to its older sibling.
