Transistor Art Appreciation
This post is just a straight up Transistor appreciation post. Supergiant Games is probably one of my favourite game development companies and Transistor is an absolutely beautiful addition to its library. If you've never played it, then it's worth at least checking out the artwork because the art design is amazing. NOTE: This contains visual spoilers for the game Transistor.
Image DescriptionRed looking down at her beloved, who is on the ground, impaled with a large blue futuristic sword that has a large red circle on it that somewhat resembles an eye.
Image DescriptionRed's back is turned from the viewer. She is looking at posters from her concert that was interrupted by the disaster, plastered all over the wall. Her shadow falls directly on the face of the largest poster.
Image DescriptionRed is on a small ski-do, her silhouette black against the blueish green water, and the greyish outline of the city-scape behind her. in the distance you can see large buildings, a draw bridge, and birds flying in the sky.
Image DescriptionRed's back is turned to the viewer. She grips the futuristic sword tightly and looks onto the sliver of city that is being shown in the background. It radiates white an bright, with one building in particular lit up in red with two orange spot lights shooting up it, marking it with an X.
Image DescriptionA photo similar to the ski-do one previously. This time Red however is on a motorcycle, speeding along a black opaque bridge. There is no background details this time, only a bright blend of white, yellow, and a hint of green.
Image DescriptionRed is taking a moment of peace to have one last piece of pizza from her favourite pizzeria, Junction Jan's. Her trusty sword perched next to her. She smiles as they reminisce about the good times they've shared over a slice, back when her love was not entrapped in the vessel she carries with her now.
Image DescriptionRed is exiting a restroom, leaning down to grab her beloved and continue on their adventure. It never hurts to take some time for yourself when evading a city that's out to get you and the fabric of reality is crumbling as you speak.... right?
Image DescriptionRed, basking in a bright, warm, white light. Her arms are outstretched towards around the Transistor, the glowing red circle, resembling an eye is now black and empty. Everything seems like it's coming together now.
Image DescriptionRed and her beloved, back to back. Their silhouettes a scheme of white, grey, and black. Around them is a mirror like border, cloaked in gold with wire like lines stemming vertically from the top and bottom. A black cloudy background lurks behind, with similar faint gold electrical lines every so lightly noticeable. To the left side of the image, there are more prominent gold wiring, protruding out from the edges of the photo.
Image DescriptionThis image is very similar to the first image in the post, Red's beloved laying dead on the ground, rested against a pile of rubble. Only this time, she is laying on the ground with him as well, the Transistor she carried with her throughout the journey, pierced into her abdomen. The dust is settling around them as the journey finally comes to an end.
Image DescriptionRed and her love stand in a golden field. The background filled with layers of blue and white clouds, opening up to a deep blue, clear sky. The sun shines down brightly in the middle of it all, burning brightly. Red is smiling, one of the few times you see her smile in the whole story. Her arm is reaching out to her love, who is all dressed in black, with a glowing gold triangle on the back of his blazer styled top. She herself is in a pastel yet still bright yellow. You can almost feel the warmth of the sun radiating out of the photo.
