Description

Transistor is an action RPG set in the futuristic, sci-fi themed city Cloudbank. The player controls the character Red, a famous singer. She is attacked by the robot force Process led by a group called The Camerata, but the attempt fails and they leave behind Transistor, a greatsword-like weapon that has absorbed the man that was last killed with it. During the game Red is hunted down by the group and gets to wield the sword that has its own personality and acts like a companion.

She explores the environment, fighting enemies with a battle system that combines both real-time elements as well as a turn-based planning phase called Turn(). The turn-based approach is not available all the time, as it drains a bar that needs to be refilled before it can be used again. Through the battles Red gains experience used to acquire Functions, powers from the Process. These can be equipped as one of four techniques and can also be used to enhance existing techniques.
