Transistor is an action RPG with tactical, turn-based combat from Supergiant Games. It follows the silent protagonist, Red, a singer whose voice has been stolen after a night of chaos and death. Red finds herself pursued, along with the mysterious intelligent, talking sword, Transistor, by The Process. The sword becomes both her guide and her weapon, as she goes on a journey to fight back and possibly regain what has been lost. FEATURES

Transistor is a gorgeous, witty, emotionally resonant, and has one of the most unique and enticing combat systems we’ve played in years. Read on for our full review, and see why it trumps its predecessor in many ways.
