State Of Mind is a story-driven adventure launching on the PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox on August 15th and can be pre-ordered now.
Like Deus Ex, Altered Carbon, and a handful of others within the much loved cyberpunk genre, State of Mind revolves around the concept of transhumanism.
Transhumanists believe that humanity’s technological development is exponential and we are inches away from the event transhumanists call Singularity, also known as the point when artificial intelligence becomes greater than our own. Check out the new trailer below:
The game takes place in Berlin in the year 2048, where humanity is lacking resources, crime is on the rise, war seems imminent, and illnesses are caused by polluted air and water.
Players will join Journalist, father, and fierce tech-critic Richard Nolan who having returned home after a stay in hospital having survived what appeared to be a car accident, he finds his life in utter tatters.
He has memory problems, his wife and son have mysteriously gone missing, and on top of it all, he has to deal with a new household robot.
Richard starts to investigate, and quickly gets entangled in a web of conspiracies, involving mysterious research files, bohemian dealers, and the protagonists of Berlin’s underground anarchist tech scene.
His investigations finally lead him to a stunning discovery: He has been subject to a mind upload. The upload, however, has gone wrong. As a result, he is still living in reality and an incomplete second version of himself now exists in a Virtual Reality project. Both versions of the same person, both with interspersed memories.
Launching August 15th and priced at 29.99USD / EUR on the PC and 39.99USD / EUR on the PS4, Switch and Xbox One, State of Mind will come with 15 + hours of gameplay and comes with a PEGI 16 age rating. We’re planning on picking this up on the PC with a full review to follow post Embargo mind August.
