Supergiant Games are builders. Back when the studio first formed up, Bastion
was born as a game about cartography, discovering and building space as you stepped through it. Transistor
, its latest for PC and PlayStation 4, may not share Bastion
's literal take on building a world, but it does construct a strange, comprehensive universe defined by electricity and information. Cloudbank is vividly realized but still mysterious even after you've played the game. Is the city inside a computer, Reboot
-style? Is it common for people to be turned into giant talking swords? It is a place with unusual rules, as strange as any real place. Good thing Joystiq Streams has a guide in Greg Kasavin, creative director of Transistor
from Supergiant Games.
Starting at 4PM EST, Joystiq will be streaming Transistor
here and on the Joystiq Twitch channel
alongside Supergiant Games' Greg Kasavin. Richard Mitchell will be playing the game while Anthony John Agnello hangs in the chat feeding your questions to Greg and Richard as we go. Not only that, we'll be giving away Steam copies of Transistor
as we play!
Joystiq Streams broadcasts live at 4PM EST every Tuesday and Thursday here and at Twitch.tv/Joystiq.
