The Technomancer

The Technomancer

A sci-fi RPG set during the 'War of Water' on Mars.


The Technomancer is a sci-fi role-playing game developed by Spiders and is currently set for release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2016.

Players will assume the role of Zachariah, a technomancer who is on the run. Zachariah can use his technomancy powers to enhance three different fighting styles which involve staffs for long range attacks and the ability to target multiple enemies, ranged combat using a knife and gun allowing the player to be more agile and a traditional tank style with a mace and shield allowing the player to block and parry. In addition Zachariah can use his skills to electrocute enemies directly, stunning or knocking them out.

The game will feature a modular crafting system which will affect the appearance and characteristics of weapons and armour. Most of these are designed to reflect the harsh environment and landscape of life on Mars after having been cut off from Earth for over a century.

Quests can be completed in a variety of ways, which will have an effect on the ending the player ultimately gets.

The game shares some themes and ideas with Spiders previous release Mars: War Logs. A technomancer was a type of character class in Mars: War Logs and both games are set on Mars years after it has been colonized by humanity. Both games also feature a heavy cyberpunk aesthetic.
