Cross posted with OO because I love Bastion.

Super Giant Games just announced their second game, Transistor

Trailer

Looks like they are going a bit more science fiction than fantasy this time around.  Gameplay is looks similar to bastion except maybe with a bit more planning involved. 



Bastion was my favorite game of 2011 so Im definitely excited for this one.  An early build is supposed to be playable at PAX East; anyone going who would like to report back impressions?   smile

Love that trailer. These guys know how to do things with style. The gameplay... didn't really excite me, I'm afraid to say, but hopefully it's just not coming across well.

According to the previews from PAX, the game will play quite differently than Bastion.  The battle system looks more like a Baldur's Gate/Dragon Age real-time pausable system than an action-RPG.

Ah, good. Really wasn't into the action oriented gameplay of Bastion. Good game, but not my taste.

The kid took one look at the trailer and just walked away. Then he just wailed on some boxes for a bit.

Total Biscuit did a video on this yesterday.  You can see the tactical combat engine in action as well as hear the glorious return of the narrator!

Same here. I'm more excited for the soundtrack than any other part of the game.
