Devolver Digital have published a flurry of awesome and inventive games in 2017 and we’re kicking off 2018 with a point and click, cyber punk thriller called Red Strings. To me it looks a lot like an 8-bit Blade Runner adventure game and that sounds bloody brilliant in my opinion.
The game’s developers Deconstructeam have this to say about their impressive new project:
“The Red Strings Club is a cyberpunk narrative experience about fate and happiness featuring the extensive use of pottery, bartending and impersonating people on the phone to take down a corporate conspiracy. The professed altruistic corporation Supercontinent Ltd is on the verge of releasing Social Psyche Welfare: a system that will eliminate depression, anger and fear from society. However, the bartender of a clandestine club and a freelance hacker don’t regard this evolution as an improvement but as brainwashing. Alongside unwitting company employees and a rogue empathy android, the duo will pull all the strings they can to bring down this scheme.”
And if that’s caught your attention then you’ll probably want to watch this trailer:
