The Red Strings Club mixes pottery, cyberpunk, and overthrowing corporations


Kiln in the name of

The follow-up effort from the Gods Will Be Watchingdeveloper, Deconstructeam, is almost ready to be unleashed upon the world. Devolver Digital revealed today that The Red Strings Clubis set to release on January 22.

The Red Strings Clubis another narrative adventure, and I have not yet seen a combination of words that gives me even the slightest grasp as to what it’s actually about. So, I’m going to take the easy way out and copy/paste the description from the press release:

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 which 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.

Sounds wild as hell, huh?

Deconstructeam and Devolver have a decent offer in place for anyone whose curiosity is piqued. The Red Strings Clubwill sell for $15, but pre-orders are going for $12. Also, all pre-orders come with a copy of Gods Will Be Watching. Potential corporation overthrowers should note, however, that taking advantage of this is probably not an effective way to stick it to The Man.
