Are you a cyberpunk fan? Well then, we have great news for you. The Technomancer was recently announced by French developer, Spiders. If you’re a gamer, you may have played a game by Spiders before, though you may not have heard of them. They game development company is not well-known, but they have released a few action/RPG games that you may have heard about. Bound by Flame was their most recent release, receiving mixed reviews. They also made a game called Mars: War Logs that received very moderate reviews as well. However, that has not stopped them from making another game, and this one looks like it might be their first real winner.
Although it is not a AAA release, The Technomancer seemingly has a lot to offer. It is a follow-up to Mars: War Logs. It takes place during the War of Waters on the planet Mars. According to the announcement, The Technomancer will grip players by using both their survival skills and emotions.
On the run from the Secret Police and confronted by the harsh realities of the Red Planet, you must undertake a quest that takes you through tribal communities, cities lost under the ice, and dystopian shanties sprawled across Mars’ dusty embrace…
Faced with the cruelty of Mars’ iron-fist enforcers and wild-life, can you survive long enough to uncover the truth behind The Technomancer?”
Like many RPGs, The Technomancer is expected to create in-depth decision-making through conversation. Spiders has also stated it will include five endings, an electric hand, three fighting styles, weapon crafting, and several companions. Beautiful, crisp graphics can be expected judging by the images Spiders has released.
The Technomancer may be Spiders’ first well-received RPG and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2016.
