🎮 Transistor

Posted on Aug 30, 2018

I finished the game Transistor last night. I played it on my iPad Pro with a MFi controller.

It was a fun game with a great atmosphere (setting, sound design, visual design, etc.) but the story was a bit too opaque for my taste. You had to dig into the user interface and read a bunch of optional stuff to get a better idea of what is going on ints its disintegrating cyberpunk world.

It ended kind of abruptly and had a tragic ending, which is unusual, but maybe not for the game studio. Their prior game, Bastion, also had kind of a downer ending.

I’m not sure if I will do a replay of Transister, but I’m happy that I played it.
