We are familiar with Deconstructeam with their point and click thriller Gods Will Be Watching. Now, the team is getting ready to launch a new pixelated title, The Red Strings Club.
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.” Well, you got my attention already.
While the professed altruistic corporation Supercontinent Ltd. is getting ready to release their brand new product to the society, the bartender of a clandestine club and a freelance hacker stands against it since the product is a system that will eliminate depression, anger and fear from society, yet our bartender thinks it is a way of brainwashing.
What does happiness means and what lengths are permissible to obtain it?
Here are the key features of the game:
- Cyberpunk Thriller Narrative: Uncover a mysterious corporate program that promises a blissful existence while debating what does happiness means and what lengths are permissible to obtain it.
- Psychological Bartending: Read your customer’s’ mood and mix the perfect cocktail to manipulate the client’s emotions in order to gather the information you want and progress your agenda of stopping Supercontinent’s plans.
- Genetic Implant Pottery: Design genetic implants at a high-tech lathe to change the attitude and direction of the corporation’s most influential executives.
- Vocal Corporate Espionage: Assume the voice of important figures in the Social Psyche Welfare project and play their own motivations against each other over the phone to uncloak their plans.
Seems like The Red Strings Club is more than meets the eye and offers a deep and strong story. The game will be out in January 2018 and we will be back with more detailed information when the time comes.
