Following last year’s Bound By Flame, Focus Home has announced that developer Spiders is trading in their fantasy world for a science fiction take on Mars.

The Technomancer puts players in the shoes of a man who specializes in the combination of technology and magic, as he flees from the Secret Police during a war over Mars’ resources. Focus Home hasn’t released much information about the RPG, but the announcement comes alongside a small set of images you can see below.

A few features have been announced for the game, such as crafting that affects character appearances, interactive conversations, and a handful of combat styles, but Focus Home hasn’t said much about the game’s broader strokes so far. Cyberpunk themes were also hinted at, but whether the game falls into that category or leans on more standard sci-fi is unclear.

The Technomancer is currently set for release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime in 2016.
