27w ago - Supergiant Games Creative Director Greg Kasavin announced today that Transistor is coming to PlayStation 4 / PS4 from the creators of Bastion.
To quote: I remember when the seven of us at Supergiant were days away from revealing our first game, Bastion, back at PAX Prime in 2010. The game had been in development for about a year but we were only just figuring out how to talk about it to the public.
When people would ask us "what is this game about," what would we say? We weren't sure at first, because Bastion is an action RPG where an old man talks to you the whole time - and that sounds really, really terrible. Thankfully, those who played it tended to come away with a much more positive impression.
We eventually came up with stuff we could say about Bastion with a straight face, but by far our favorite way of presenting the game to people was to invite them to play it. Now here I am trying to tell you about our next game, Transistor, and I wish I could just hand you a controller and let you try it for yourself.
We revealed it earlier this year at PAX East, and today we've announced it will be making its console debut on the PlayStation 4 when we're finished with it sometime early next year. If you check our reveal trailer, you'll get a feel for what Transistor...
27w ago - Sony Vice President of Developer and Publisher Relations Adam Boyes announced today during that E3 2013 that Indie developers are continuing to choose PlayStation.
Fron the announcement, to quote: We just wrapped up the PlayStation E3 press conference where we reaffirmed our mantra: We're For Gamers.
We also reaffirmed our dedication to independent developers and their ability to self-publish on PlayStation. We've increased our efforts in a huge way to bring unique gaming experiences to PlayStation platforms, and as we just revealed, we have an excellent lineup of games coming to the PlayStation 4 from the indie development community. Let's take a look at some of those titles:
When Supergiant Games unveiled Transistor in March I was smitten. When I played it at PAX East I was in love (I MAY have skipped the 4 hour line to check out the game. Supergiant's newest game has all the style, mystery and flare we have come to expect from the creators of Bastion.
I look forward to unraveling Red's journey through the City. We have been eager to work with Supergiant and are happy to announce that Transistor will make its console debut on PlayStation 4. Welcome to the PlayStation family, Supergiant Games. We're excited to have you.
