Top Critic Average
Transient is quite a pretty game that manages to mix and match cyberpunk vibes from Observer with some quirky Lovecraftian stuff. But the lack of a coherent storyline, interesting puzzles, and a better motivation for main protagonist to dive deep into past events is sadly hard to ignore. Plus all those references to some old retro classics seems rather out of place here.

The game's excellent presentation goes wonderfully with its surprising amount of variety. The game might not be scary, but it is thought-provoking and unique, which makes it more than worth a look from narrative adventure fans.
Transient is an ambitious horror game which fans of H. P. Lovecraft will appreciate for its overarching themes and sneaky references.
Transient is an another well done tribute to Lovecraft from the studio formerly known as Zoetrope Interactive. But even though the world building is solid as always, the game is sadly too short and the ending too abrupt to elevate the game to anything beyond an above average title.

Cyberpunk and Lovecraft... It's a weird crossover but worth to try. Transient is a good game but it could be better.

Transient had the potential to be something great, fusing a gorgeous cyberpunk setting with a Lovecraftian-inspired story. However everything else besides the world and its visuals just falls flat. The gameplay is uninspired and tedious, managing to make a relatively short game drag on for longer than it needed to.
Transient does cyberpunk cosmic horror decently.
Transient isn’t a long game, and its gameplay tends to take a backseat to its storytelling, but if you’re looking for a cyberpunk mystery or a cosmic horror story, Transient blends them remarkably well to create an engrossing journey.
