In this sci-fi RPG developed by Spider Studios, corporations fight for water on the surface of the red planet, but hidden beneath are different groups working to survive or mutants disfigured by the sun’s radiation. The player, as the Technomancer, will find these people in unexplored cracks of the planet.
In the game, the Technomancer, or mage-warrior, has the ability to harness electrical power, a trait that is amplified by their cybernetic implants.

Players will have to distinguish which actions are most appropriate to solve problems and move the story along.
The planet’s destiny is in the Technomancer’s hands. However, along with way and during the War of Water, questions about the Technomancer’s own past will be discovered.
