If you ever played a charming ‘little’ action RPG by the name of Bastion from Supergiant Games, then you’ll definitely want to take notice of the independent developer’s next game, Transistor, which makes its way out into the world in 2014.

Get your first glimpse of the science fiction inspired title below with a wonderful trailer showing early looks at in-game action and cinematics:

Transistor – Reveal Trailer

If you’ll be at PAX East in Boston this week and weekend, Supergiant will be there with an early build of the game available to play. As far as platforms are concerned, it would be a good guess that Transistor will make an appearance as a downloadable title, while iOS has been heavily hinted at by the studio’s creative director, Greg Kasavin.

“We’re designing our next game to seamlessly integrate thoughtful strategic planning into a fast-paced action experience, complete with our studio’s signature melding of responsive gameplay and rich atmospheric storytelling,” said Supergiant in a post on its website.

“In Transistor, players assume the role of a young woman who gains control of a powerful weapon after a mysterious group of assailants nearly kills her with it,” the post continues.

“Now she must fight from street to street against forces that will stop at nothing to recover the weapon. During the course of the adventure, players will piece together the Transistor’s mysteries as they pursue its former owners.”

It’s still very early days, but what did you think of that taste of Transistor in the trailer?
