Devolver Digital announced today that preorders for Deconstructeam‘s cyberpunk adventure The Red Strings Club are now live. Players who purchase The Red Strings Club ahead of its January 22nd launch date will be rewarded with a 20% off discount (bringing the game’s price down to US$11.99), as well as a free copy of Deconstructeam‘s debut game, Gods Will Be Watching (should they already own it, they will still get a giftable copy for a friend).
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.
