Also Supergiant's previous game, Bastion for £2.19 (which also has a demo):
"Bastion is an action role-playing experience that redefines storytelling in games, with a reactive narrator who marks your every move. Explore more than 40 lush hand-painted environments as you discover the secrets of the Calamity, a surreal catastrophe that shattered the world to pieces. Wield a huge arsenal of upgradeable weapons and battle savage beasts adapted to their new habitat."

This is an excellent game even at full price for anyone who is sat on the fence. It's so stylised and rich in detail you won't be disappointed. Great recommendation Op

Which one, Transistor or Bastion?

Which one, Transistor or Bastion?



​I like both but prefer the battle system in Transistor it's very smart. They're great games with nice sound tracks too. If you like Sci-Fi/Cyberpunk maybe go for Transistor if you like it retro go for Bastion.

Both are very good. I'd get both!

I seem to get slightly mixed up with Transistor and Invisible Inc, thus far I've bought the former not the latter.
I'm sure there will be a clearer distinction once I eventually play one of them...

Absolutely loved Bastion, one of the best indie games available last gen.

I got incredibly hyped for Transistor and felt completely disappointed, did not enjoy it at all and only put in a few hours.

All the good stuff from Bastion is missing, maybe check out a trailer, game play footage, or a demo if you're unsure
