The Technomancer is the Next RPG From the Makers of Bound By Flame and Mars: War Logs


Focus Home and Spiders are back in action working on a new RPG to succeed previous titles like Bound By Flame, Mars: War Logs, Faery: Legends of Avalon as well as Of Orcs and Men (that one was co-developed with Cyanide).

This new RPG is called The Technomancer, and it takes place in a cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic vision of Mars. The announcement doesn’t mention if there are any direct ties with the universe established in Mars: War Logs, but Technomancy did play a role in that game so at the very least there is a common thread linking the two.


Like all Spiders RPGs, The Technomancer will feature action-based combat with specializations across four unique skill trees, including three fighting styles and the cybernetic powers of Technomancy; in-depth gear crafting and customization; choice and consequence based dialogue; and multiple endings and quest outcome possibilities.

Although not on the AAA budget playing field of the Dragon Ages, Mass Effects, or even The Witchers, Spiders RPGs have always delivered solid mechanics, and the quality and scope of the studio’s productions have been consistently improving. Of Orcs and Men and Mars: War Logs earned favorable reviews from Tim, and despite some rough edges Bound By Flame was one of my favorite games from all of last year. So, with appropriately set expectations, there is good reason to start looking forward to The Technomancer.

The Technomancer is scheduled to hit PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One sometime in 2016.
