Transistor was a brilliant game--it had stunning art, a fantastic and intelligent (albeit complex and subtle) narrative, interesting and thoughtful gameplay, and superb voice acting. However, Transistor suffers from an anti-problem; the game strove for quality over quantity. Recursion mode (Transistor's form of New Game +) aimed to fix the game's playtime somewhat, but most opine that Recursion fell short.

Enter Transition(). Transition() is a series of Transistor mods made by 0Azimuth and friends. Each mod refines and restructures Transistor's gameplay into a new theme.

The first mod, Hyperthread(), encourages using Functions in real-time and using Turn() as an evasion mechanic, making faster-paced gameplay. You can read more about it on the Features page, or head to Tutorials to learn how to download and play it for yourself. Don't forget to report any bugs you find and tell me what you think! Your feedback shapes the future of these mods. Have fun!

Hyperthread() Update

v0.4 and the new launcher (v0.2_ZL) are dropping tonight!

2015 06 06 09 26 04 Hyperthread

Download it here when it comes out:


Hyperthread() Alpha v0.4


What's new in this update?

First of all, there's the brand new launcher. I got a lot of feedback from all of you about the old launcher, so I rebuilt the mod manager from the ground up with a new UI and your requested changes.

There's plenty more coming for the launcher, too. In future updates, I'll continue adding UI improvements and animations (I'm thinking that I'll format the launcher to look like an OVC terminal), re-adding the sounds from the old launcher, and including any other settings you'd like me to include. Right now, that Hyperthread() Details button doesn't do anything, but in the next update, it'll give an overview of the changes Hyperthread() makes to the base game. Overclock() and Pipeline() will have buttons too.

The settings screen is a work in progress, but everything you see here is functional! As you've requested, the mod manager now supports custom resolutions, custom install paths, and launching Transistor automatically on mod installation! Let me know if you'd like any other settings added (and don't worry, the UI on this screen will be cleaned up soon).

What about Hyperthread()?

Hyperthread() mostly received code updates in the background that prepare for the new version of Switch() (which is being completely replaced and recoded to more accurately fit Hyperthread()'s gameplay style) and Royce / Copycat (both of whom currently don't work, unfortunately). There were also numerous bug fixes, text updates, UI changes, crashes removed, and function tweaks.

You can read the full changelog for this update right here.

As always, thanks for playing, have fun, and feel free to leave me feedback, comments, or suggestions!

Great stuff!

Unrelated question: Since you guys work with the games files, are you able to access the artworks at all? I've been on the hunt for high-quality images of the Function characters with little success and wondered if you had access to them. Let me know!
