Enter the TRANSISTOR Giveaway!

By Supergiant Games October 28 2018

If you've played Transistor, then you know an awful lot of fuss can happen over a certain extraordinary, talkative, neon-lit weapon of mysterious origin. Well, you don't have to be the Camerata to get your hands on it anymore, because we're GIVING AWAY this absolutely stunning, life-sized, lit-up, talking version of the Transistor itself, crafted to perfection by the masters at Volpin Props.


HOW TO ENTER: All you have to do is subscribe to the Supergiant Blast, our free monthly email newsletter where we give you the inside scoop about what we're up to. Just like with our recent Cael Hammer Giveaway, if you're already a subscriber, you're all set! We'll select the lucky winner after November 12, 2018.

PRIZES: The grand-prize winner will receive the Transistor itself. Ten winners will receive a copy of the Transistor Original Soundtrack (Vinyl), signed by composer Darren Korb and vocalist Ashley Barrett. Twenty additional winners will receive download codes for Transistor for Nintendo Switch.

WATCH: Want to see all that goes into a real-life, light-up, talking Transistor?

Pretty close match, isn't it?

Here's a quick Q&A about the giveaway:

Q: You're really giving away the Transistor?! How do I sign up?
A: We are, indeed! To have a chance to win, just make sure you've subscribed to our Supergiant Blast newsletter by November 12, 2018. We'll announce the lucky winner in a subsequent installment!

Q: So I can just subscribe to the Blast for the contest, then unsubscribe after?
A: Sure! The Supergiant Blast is meant for you. If you don't like it, unsubscribe; we'd appreciate any other feedback.

Q: Hypothetically speaking, were I to win, could I... build bridges or absorb souls and stuff?
A: This is a life-size replica designed for display, not for tampering with the fabric of reality. It does, however, light up and it says a bunch of things. We want to make absolutely sure it finds a warm and loving home.

Q: Are there any restrictions on who can enter?
A: There are. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. As each country tends to have its own unique laws and regulations around these types of giveaways, and delivery of prizes with monetary value, this restriction was the only way we could make this giveaway happen from a legal standpoint. Our alternative was not to do it at all. We appreciate your understanding in this.

Q: It's sort of weird but I just love reading legal text, so, you wouldn't happen to have a bunch of it pertaining to this particular giveaway like you did with the hammer one, do you?
A: Absolutely, glad you asked!
