Developer Supergiant Games has revealed that its science fiction action role-playing game Transistor has sold an impressive 600,000 copies since it launched in May last year.
Nothing that's going to change the world, but it's a decent return, and a better one than the studio's previous hit, cult fantasy RPG (with the coolest narration ever)
Transistor follows famous singer Red as she battles her way through the gorgeously designed city of Cloudbank, fighting the robotic Process to an awesome electronic soundtrack. It's a lovely little game.
“Bastion's success exceeded our wildest fantasies by quite a bit,” writes creative director Greg Kasavin on. “It's sold more than 3 million copies to date, the majority of which happened many months after the game first came out on Xbox 360 and PC.”
“So, we were very happy to see Transistor selling even faster relative to Bastion during the first couple of months after its launch. With the new year upon us, we checked our spreadsheets, rubbed our eyes, checked our spreadsheets again and can now report that, thus far, Transistor has sold well over 600,000 copies between Steam and the PlayStation Store!”
Bastion went on to sell over three million copies, so Supergiant are understandably happy at the start Transistor's made. It's fair to say we rather liked the game, considering that we gave it a perfect ten inlast year.
