Bastion, Transistor Exceed Expectations For Humble Game Studio


Supergiant Games, an indie video game development company based in San Jose, California, shared their excitement on their official website over sales figures for both Bastion and Transistor, including over 90 nominations and awards.

Bastion, the indie game released in 2011, has sold over 3 million units, while Transistor, released last August in 2014, has sold 600,000 copies. The latter has also received over 70 nominations and awards for various categories, including “Best Overall Game” on IGN. Both video games have been praised by critics for their direction, art, music, and gameplay.

“Word-of-mouth is what kept Bastion going for way, way longer than we could have imagined, and it’s what’s kept Transistor going strong, too,” wrote Greg Kasavin, who formerly worked for GameSpot, and was the writer and creative director for Bastion.

Bastion first came out for the Xbox 360 and PC, and in 2012 saw an iOS release. Transistor is available on Steam for PC, PlayStation 4, OS X, and Linus.

Currently, there are no known games in the works for the studio.

“It was a big year for us, and now, we’re excited to be on the other side of it, working together to figure out what’s next.”
