Transistor - A Lesson in Style

by Couchpotato, 2014-05-31 07:17:36

Gamemoir writer Jack Rooney has penned a new article for Transistor where he talks about why the game is a lesson for all other indie developers.

Transistor truly is a lesson in style to all other developers out there. Play through that game and tell me it didn’t feel personal, soulful, and stylish. I won’t believe you. Games like this need as much recognition as they can get so that other developers know that this is what many gamers are asking for. I can’t remember the last time an Assassin’s Creed game felt stylish, despite being well-polished and enjoyable. I can say with absolute certainty that Transistor is a title I will still think of years from now, the same way I think about Bastion, but I would be shocked if a AAA game comes out this year that I think about even a few months after its release. That is, unless it has style.
