Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Stormling Studios announced a new Lovecraftian cyberpunk adventure game called Transient.

While you might not recognize the developer by name, Stormling Studios is the new name for the team behind Conarium and the Darkness Within series. You can read our review of Conarium, a 3D adventure game set after the events of At the Mountains of Madness, here.

Transient is planned to release for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2020.

The short teaser trailer doesn’t give us much beyond a glimpse of the dark and mysterious environments we’ll see in the game, the official announcement provides more details.

“In the distant, post-apocalyptic future, what is left of the population of mankind lives in an enclosed citadel called Domed City Providence, created to survive the harsh outside environment. In this, mankind’s final refuge, Randolph Carter, a member of a notorious hacker-for-hire group called ODIN, accidentally stumbles across the terrifying truth, a truth that might tear apart his own sanity and question his very existence.”

Randolph Carter being in this is very interesting. Despite being a cyberpunk game set in the future, this might take place within Lovecraft’s mythos just like Conarium did.

If you’re a fan of Lovecraft-inspired adventure games and especially if you enjoy cyberpunk stories as well, Transient sounds like a game we’ll definitely want to keep an eye on.
