Transistor Earns 15+ Award Nominations @ E3 2013!

Posted by Greg Kasavin on June 25, 2013

We survived our exciting trip to the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo, where we let lots of people get their hands on Transistor for the first time. Turns out a bunch of them liked it! See below for links to what people said about the game, or check our E3 photo gallery on Facebook for a glimpse of our trip. In the meantime, much as we loved basking in the neon light of E3, it feels good to be back to work! We’re in the thick of development and look forward to making good progress this summer.
