Video: Supergiant Games - Behind the Music & Sounds of Transistor

50°
27w ago - Supergiant Games Audio Director Darren Korb shared a glimpse behind the music and sounds of Transistor on PlayStation 4 below today.

To quote: Hey everybody! I'm Darren, the audio director at [Register or Login to view links] and composer for Transistor. I've been blown away by the amazing response the game and the music have been getting, and I thought I'd tell you a little bit about my approach to the game's music.

From our point of view as a team, audio is a really important part of creating an immersive, atmospheric experience, and everything I do as audio director is in service of that.

Supergiant is based in of San Francisco, but Logan Cunningham (our talented voice actor) and I are all the way in New York. Since we're a small team, we have to make do with whatever we can get our hands on when it comes to making games!

That's my apartment (and dog and baby) to the right. Just about all the sounds and music in [Register or Login to view links] were created here. The constraint of working out of my home studio, with only the resources available to me, is a big part of my creative process.

It means that all the music in the game is made up of some combination of recorded instrument parts that...

50°
27w ago - Supergiant Games Creative Director Greg Kasavin announced that Transistor is out today on PS4, alongside a track from the OST below.

To quote: On behalf of all of us at [Register or Login to view links], it's my pleasure to announce that Transistor is now available on PS4! Get it right [Register or Login to view links].

Want to know what you're getting yourself into? Our new launch trailer will give you an idea:





Sometimes we're asked "who does your trailers," and the answer is: We do! Our trailers are important to us. Cutting a trailer means packing the atmosphere and feel of our game as tight as possible, to give you a strong impression of what we're going for.

We think it's important that our trailers complement our game with original content. This means creating a scene with original art and voiceover that could be taken from some of the gaps in the story.

This way, whether you've never heard of Transistor or whether you've been eyeing its development like a hawk, the trailer will deepen your understanding of the world and its characters.

Speaking of trailers...
 

Sony Announces Transistor Out Tuesday, Recursion Mode Revealed

28w ago - Supergiant Games Creative Director Greg Kasavin announced today via Sony's blog that Transistor for PS4 is out Tuesday alongside Recursion Mode details below.

To quote: Transistor is less than a week away! Things are eerily calm for us at [Register or Login to view links] as we await the moment when our new game becomes available worldwide, at which point we'll find out at long last what everybody really thinks!

It's been immensely gratifying to have worked on something that so many folks are excited about. Though, knowing full well just how little of the game we've shown, I'm eager to see the response to all the many aspects of the game we've purposely kept secret.

I'd like to talk about one of those aspects here, but first! Let me tell you why we've opted to keep so quiet through most of Transistor's development.

"The less you know about Transistor, the more likely it is to surprise you."

We could have shown more. Since you're reading this on PlayStation.Blog, I'd bet you're pretty up to date on what's happening in games in general. You know the typical PR cycle for a big game involves tons of trailers, previews, press releases, and so on, and maybe eventually a round or two of hands-on impressions before the game is finally released....

Update: You can now pre-order Transistor on [Register or Login to view links].

Now that the game is almost ready, I wanted to get into some more nitty-gritty details about some of its features.

For starters, Transistor features lots and lots of hand-painted 2D artwork, and thanks to PlayStation 4′s raw power, you'll get to experience it just as we intended in full HD 1080p resolution. That's a first for us on console.

Some months ago I also told you a little about how we're using DualShock 4′s light bar in sync with the voiceover in the game. At the end I hinted we were also looking into using the...
