- Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill
went hands-on today with Transistor on Sony's PS4 / PlayStation 4 video game console.
Below is a video and details, to quote: One of the most striking trailers to come out of E3 this year was that of Transistor
's upcoming PS4 action RPG. After watching it a few hundred times, I made it my personal mission to go hands-on with it at this year's PAX Prime - and after waiting in one
of the longest lines at the show, I did just that.
Transistor adopts a top-down, isometric view during gameplay, not unlike Supergiant's previous title, Bastion
. The overall art style is similar as well, with vibrant colors just aching to burst through the screen. Transistor takes on a more modern aesthetic, though, with a neo-watercolor tone permeating the scenery we've been shown so far.
This style really shines - both in cutscenes encountered in-game, and in real-world prints that you can get from Supergiant's Web site (like the one to the right).
A moody, melodic score complements Supergiant's luscious visuals - I'm looping the E3...
