“…you’ll recognize a worthy successor to one of the most beloved indie games of the last generation.” —

“Transistor takes the familiar and turns it into something new. The difference between good and great.” —

“…a brilliant way to make a fun and action-packed game starring a character who doesn’t have a background in combat.” — Tom’s Guide

“It had a constantly massive line at PAX, and everyone from the press room to the show floor mentioned it.” –

“Its gameplay is sleek; its electronica-infused audio is stylish; and it’s definitely easy on the eyes.” —

“Transistor is even more stunning to behold than Bastion was.” — Den of Geek

    Wow, those are a lot of commendations. If Transistor truly does turn out better than Bastion (and I've always thought it would), it will take first place on my "favorite indie games" list, naturally followed by Bastion and then Dust: an Elysian Tail. :squirtyay: I'm counting the days!

    So glad everyone is loving the game. You've come so far guys, now it's time for the finishing touches! I got a feeling Transistor will be a bigger hit for you guys but only time will tell, and boy am I constantly looking at the time until release. Cannot wait to play the game. Will pre-order it as soon as it is up!

    Whoa, I'm counting the days ! Did you ever think of a box-release ? That would be awesome, I like to have the box of the games I like, with the CD, a manual, etc. I understand it's very hard and expensive, I was kinda dreaming (moreover for PC gamer). Anyway, can't wait !!
