The game starts by throwing you immediately into a mystery, which involves the main character discovering a talking weapon on a dead body - the Transistor. You uncover secrets about the character and the world around her by exploring, finding upgrades and fighting a myriad of digital enemies.
As the game develops, you can equip your character with a wide range of upgrades that can be applied actively and passively to achieve different weapons and combat advantages for your character. As you develop, so the enemies develop keeping the combat challenging all the way through the life of the game.
