Indie RPG Transistor Is In Alpha. Next Up—Polish And Fine-Tuning.


Supergiant Games, the studio behind Bastion, is hard at work on its next game, Transistor, and recently provided an update as to its status on their official blog (thanks, Polygon).


“Right now Transistor is in an alpha state where just about all of the content, systems, and features we have in mind are implemented in some fashion, and the game is playable from beginning to end,” writes Supergiant’s Greg Kasavin. “It’s where we wanted to be as we head into 2014.”


“In the coming weeks, we plan to keep testing, tuning, and iterating on every aspect of the game until we think it’s ready to put out there for you to play. We’ll talk more specifics as we get closer to that time.”


Just how many platforms Transistor will be released on is unknown as of this time, but Supergiant did confirm a PlayStation 4 version of the game at E3 earlier in the year. Bastion was released on PC, Mac, Xbox 360, iOS platforms and even Google Chrome.
