Transistor, the acclaimed sci-fi action RPG from Supergiant Games, is currently free on the Epic Store.

The game follows Red after she acquires a powerful and dangerous weapon, known as Transistor. The Transistor weapon has taken Red’s voice, which is especially bad given that she’s a singer by trade.

Transistor also contains the consciousness of a recently deceased man, who guides Red through the isometric cities in the game. Red and Transistor must unravel a mystery that goes deeper than the two of them could have ever expected.

Transistor was first released in May 2014 for Windows and PlayStation 4. It was later released on OS X and Linux in October 2014 and iOS devices in June 2015.
