Itís gorgeous. It oozes, drips and flows with aesthetic beauty and conjures a dreamy scifi-cyberpunk-steampunk style. The melancholy song and driving beat that plays over the lush visuals whisks your imagination and emotions to another world - before depositing you back to the real with the leering number: 2014. 2014?!?! *sigh*
I suppose good things really do come to those who wait.
As I sit here and pine for Transistor on my pile of forget-me-nots, the knowledge that one of my favorite new developers has taken both a risk and a creative leap to build upon their unique and stunning aesthetic and boldly put a GIRL at the reins of their next story, makes me smile - makes my little gamer heart glow with happy feelings as Supergiant proudly displays that some devs really do know that girls can kick just as much ass as the next guy.
Bastion made me a follower and fan, Supergiant. Transistor just might make me a true believer.
