Well, it has been a while since Bound by Flame was released by Spiders in May last year. While the game got average to mixed reviews, the developers think they are ready to give another go to their specialized skills.
It appears that a game called Technomancer is in development at the Spiders studio in Paris.
Interestingly, it wasn’t a teaser video or a trailer that revealed the new (which is the case most of the times unless a game is leaked). In fact, the existence of Technomancer was confirmed in a press event where publisher Focus Home Interactive announced it.
They have not shared any game details so far except for a poster that you can see above.
Just as the name suggests, it is going to be an action RPG that features sci-fi elements intertwined with fantasy – most definitely magic. Oh and that character in the poster surely does justice to that theme.
As far as Focus Home Interactive is concerned, we all know them for being the publishers of the retail version of The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead and of course Bound By Flame and Mars Wars Logs. Their latest project, before this new poster was revealed, is Cities XXL which recently made to the news with a new trailer.
The developer Spiders has made seven games so far and all of them have been published by Focus Home Interactive except for Gray Matter. Since the two have partnered a lot, I am sure they have something good in store again.
With that being said, Spiders is also fond of working on action roleplaying games and I am sure Technomancer is going to be another good experiment of theirs.
Last but not the least, all the games developed by Spiders have used Silk Engine which is a modification of PhyreEngine by Sony – I bet this one is going to be no different.
