Transistor Available On Linux Now

By - | Views: 17,559

Transistor, a game made by the developers of the well-received Bastion, is finally available on Linux.

About the Game:
Transistor is an Action RPG with an isometric camera much like its predecessor Bastion. And, like Bastion, it has plenty of style and atmosphere. Players control a singer, named Red, who finds herself drawn into a conflict involving the real and digital worlds. It is set in the backdrop of a futuristic city which is beautifully rendered in the studio's vibrant art style. The combat is both real time action but also has turn-based strategic aspects. This, coupled with different abilities that can be acquired and upgrades give the game some depth and variety.

Check out the launch trailer below:

The game holds an 83 on Metacritic and I, for one, have been looking forward to playing it after having a blast with Bastion. You can buy it for 50% off through steam here.

History, sci-fi, technology, cooking, writing and playing games are things I enjoy very much. I'm always keen to try different genres of games and discover all the gems out there.

Oh and the name doesn't mean anything but coincidentally could be pronounced as "Buttery" which suits me just fine.

Let's not forget to praise our good friend Ethan Lee for doing a great job with the Linux version.

I really wonder why Transistor and Bastion are not on GOG. They are indie games free of DRM and they are out for all the platforms that GOG supports.
