Supergiant Games, the developer behind Bastion, has announced its next title. The game is called Transistor, and the studio promises an early version of it will be playable this weekend at PAX East.

The revelation came from a Supergiant tweet (via Polygon). An accompanying blog post says the sci-fi action RPG is aiming for an early 2014 release. Platforms are unannounced and, according to Supergiant, undecided.

The game stars a young woman who barely survives a mysterious attack. She takes their weapon, the "Transistor," and goes searching for answers as forces pursue her to take the weapon back. Check out the trailer below.

        You should have seen the nerds shitting themselves when they found out Valve was turning Legion Commander into a woman. It's like Valve ruined the entire game making a female STR hero.

          heh, I actually heard about that. I was looking at the hero roster and was wondering why there is no female strength heroes.

          The concept art looks sick. A well designed hero is a well designed hero regardless of gender.

      I loved Bastion! So I'm stoked for this, though I gotta say the initial premise sounds quite similar.

      Bastion was great. The soundtrack was even better. This will be a purchase for sure.

      Wow, I know it's just a one minute teaser but that looked AWESOME. They'll have to deal with very high expectations but I have a hunch they're up to it. Can't wait to play it!
