Transistor will make its console debut on the PS4 in 2014, but Supergiant has confirmed it will also be released simultaneously for the PC through Steam. After that, the developer plans to bring the game to Linux and Mac. And after that? According to Creative Director Greg Kasavin, Supergiant “[hasn’t] ruled anything out beyond that.”
Bastion, Supergiant’s first game, originally appeared on the Xbox Live Arcade and over the course of a year was eventually released on several additional platforms including PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and a version playable in Google Chrome.
Kasavin has similar plans for Transistor, saying: “The main reason Bastion ended up in so many places, of course, is because a lot of people liked the game. And the main reason a lot of people liked it is because we were able to create the game we wanted to make in the first place, by not spreading our focus too thin and making sure Bastion ran great on XBLA, then on Steam, and so on. So, in short: Our strategy of focusing on a console/PC launch worked well on Bastion so we’re doing it again on Transistor.”
We definitely liked Transistor when we played it at this year’s PAX East show.
