Seriously, it's one of the best indie games out there, especially if you love exploring for secrets.

Go away game dev.

Game is on the short side, but extremely well made. Would second the recommendation.

I didn't know 30 hours was short.

You may be referring to the short time that happens when players just plow through it without hunting for powerups and secrets.

The secret hunting can last a long time but at that point you're scrounging for minor stuff and completionism. Should've been about half again as long as it was, imo. Two full areas with new bosses and enemies. I'm not talking for the price here, I think it's good enough value at full price - just what I would have liked to see for the game to more fully realize its potential creatively.

I'm a very slow player and like to waste a ton of time on exploring thoroughly, plus there were a few spots where I got stuck replaying a difficult fight. It took me ~16 hours according to Steam (--> counts the pause screen) and I'm sure I was preeeetty close to 100%ing that playthrough. It's not thaaaat long, but it definitely has a satisfying amount of content. Especially if you go for multiple playthroughs.

is this as overrated as Bastion?

Because I've only heard praise for Bastion, bought it, and it turned out the game was crap

Bastion is generic and shallow, people hype this thing for narrations and nothing more.
However, if you ignored Transistor because of Bastion, please look it up and give it a chance. That game is actually great.

Everytime I try to play I get bored. Everything just feels so slow, don't like the crypticness or the map, the music is a downer too... I mean it seems nice, it should be way up my alley, but I just can't seem to enjoy it. Maybe go back for a 4th time and try to like it lol. :x
