As the game developer’s described (Supergiant Games), Transistor is a sci-fi themed action RPG that invites players to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as they fight through a stunning futuristic city.
First off, I would like to apologize to the developers that I’ve finished Transistor with an unauthorized copy of the game. I’ll buy the game when Steam Summer Sale is up, I promise.
When I read throughout the Internet times ago (Facebook and Twitter timeline, Polygon and PC Gamer, etc.), most said that Transistor is an awesome game. I wasn’t sure at first, because the picture of Red (the main character) posing in front of the stabbed unknowned man didn’t interest me much, so I don’t even try to Google what’s it about. A few weeks back, I was bored with the games I have, so I decide to download and play Transistor (again, sorry). It was the best decision ever. Ever.
The game is a work of art, it’s one of the beautiful games I’ve played in every aspects. Magnificent artwork, splendid soundtrack, amazing story, and Red doesn’t need to say anything. Well, she— wait, spoiler alert— did say “Hi” in the end, and communicate with the “man in the Transistor” by typing sentences using the OVC Terminal, and died in the end. I spoiled too much? Anyways, the location of the game, Cloudbank, is one of the city in games I’d like to visit after Bioshock Infinite’s floating city of Columbia. The square-ish structures, the sights, the floras, *exhales* I wish Cloudbank is reality. Except the Camerata’s, don’t make them come true or they’ll take over the Processes. I really hate fighting Fetches, Snapshots and Creeps. Oh and last, it can be a Humming Simulator 2014. Just kidding, it’s a feature in the game where you can hum along with the game music. Best feature ever.
I didn’t described completely about the whole game, but I highly recommend to buy and play Transistor. If you like fighting and turn-based games, puzzling stories and sci-fi stuffs, this is the game you’d like. I’ve finished the game yesterday for two days, and I’d love to play the game again soon in Recursion mode, which you restart the story and keep all the Functions (power-ups) you have. But I don’t know about the enemies getting harder or not, though. Go figure it out yourself.
