Supergiant Games released their first title, Bastion, almost three years ago. It was about running around and killing things while your world fell apart and some dude narrated it all.
It was very good. You should go play it.
Their second game is Transistor - again played from an isometric viewpoint it concerns the almost death and then more death-dealing of a former singer called Red. She's a former singer because she's now busy with the killing of all the things.
Supergiant could have just created another hack and slash title here but instead they've taken elements of the turn based RPG and fused them with real-time action and gorgeous visuals to create something pretty darn wonderful looking. Fights can be paused and attacks planned during these moments of frozen time, with Red emerging in a blur of action. Then you'll have to be definsive until the time freezing power has regenerated.
Skills and abilities can be levelled up and you'll earn new attacks as well - all while your magical sword things keeps you up to date on everything that's happening in the story. It might be imbued with the soul of a friend of yours. We're still not sure.
Here's the launch trailer. Doesn't it look goregous!?
Transistor comes to PS4 and PC from the 20th of May 2014.
