That’s some wild wildlife.
Spider’s brand new sci-fi RPG, The Technomancer, has just received a whole bunch of new screenshots, showcasing the game’s incredibly strong and unique art, as well as how far the graphics have come on a technical scale as well. The new screenshots show us some of the strange, exotic wildlife that players will find on the surface of Mars, which forms the setting for the game.
“Although Mars’ red surface is naturally barren and completely devoid of life, hundreds of years of human civilization has led to the creation and evolution of many hybrid species built from the genetic makeup of animals found on Earth,” Spider said. “What was first an exercise to create an ecosystem to support the original settlers eventually grew out of control, following the cataclysm that wiped most settlers and isolated Mars from Earth. Mutations and accelerated evolution forged what little life there was into threatening beasts scattered all over the red planet.”
I’m glad to see the developers at least attempt a scientifically grounded explanation for why or how Mars has any life. It’s also good to see that they took the chance and ran with it- the game’s wildlife truly seems to be imaginative, and should make for some thrilling encounters.
The Technomancer is slated to launch in early 2016 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
