The Technomancer Review | Is there life on Mars?

It’s been a while since I sank my teeth into a decent sci-fi RPG. My love affair with the genre dates back to the criminally underrated Anachronox, & more recently the Mass Effect trilogy. As such, I was intrigued to play through The Technomancer – from the makers of Mars: War logs – ahead of […]
