If everyone is honest, there’s a distinct lack of new video game IP these days that isn’t coming from indie developers. Fewer still are truly immersive RPG games that implore you to explore every nook and cranny in the game to get the full story. After finding out about The Technomancer, however, I’m hoping the wait is now over. Developed by Spiders Games and published by Focus Home Interactive, The Technomancer is an ambitious RPG set in a post-apocalyptic cyberpunk world set on Mars and follows the plight of a Technomancer whose past and future are on a collision course. What really caught my eye about The Technomancer was the description given about the game talking about the skill trees and dynamic story and conversations:
The Technomancer will offer players action-oriented combat gameplay along four different skill trees, focusing on 3 different fighting styles and the destructive electric-focused powers of the Technomancers. But all situations aren’t necessarily to be dealt with brute strength, with dynamic conversation dialogue playing a deep role in quests, changing the story depending on the decisions you make. Craft equipment, weapons and armor for yourself and for the companions you’ll recruit along your adventure, nurturing relationships with them.
Reading through that gave me eerie flashbacks to Jade Empire for some reason, and that’s not a bad thing at all. The Technomancer is due for release sometime in 2016 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but stay tuned as we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one.
