Transistor, a science-fiction-themed action RPG, will be released early in 2014, developer Supergiant has announced.

Transistor is Supergiant's second game, following the critical and commercial success of Bastion.

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. 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.

Supergiant is yet to decide which platform or platforms the game will be available for.

An early playable build will be on the Bastion booth at PAX East this weekend.
