Transparent Machines game revealed for Windows 10 and Xbox One

UK-developer Freeman Apps has announced plans to create a cyberpunk-themed game, Transparent Machines, that will be released for Windows 10 and the Xbox One under Microsoft's ID@Xbox program.

This is one of the first games we have seen announced specifically for Windows 10. It's described by Freeman Apps as a "Stealth Action-Adventure Puzzle Cyberpunk game." Here is its rather detailed story summary:

The 21st Century society is obsessed with the conflicting concepts of transparency and privacy take over our daily lives through the exploitation of controlled government by Artificial Intelligence Secret Government agencies behind closed doors, hidden beneath the Government. They can track and seek your data every move at anytime, anywhere, whenever you are. You are one of them, and 99% of the citizens in Utopia are infected by Artificial Intelligence Technology Secret Government propaganda and they turn against the silent minorities who speak out against them.You are an activist who is trying to save mankind and put privacy first which you are strongly against the government's propaganda of "making lives safer and easier". However you will learn that Government makes money off the data you release into the web cloud atmosphere around the central locked down cyber city in Utopia Futuroscope, an artificial city set up in North America where all minds and every piece of tech is tracked and controlled and run by one central network, Cambodia.You as an activist is "outraged" by the actions of the NSA, The Central Government Network yet continue to wilfully upload more and more of our personal information to Facebook and Google and other tech services. You as the activist explores the contradictory nature of our actions and beliefs regarding transparency making profits out of citizens data and corruption and bankrupting small business and eroding economy, letting 99.9% citizens turn poor. Your objective is to take down the dictator, Vincoeril'e Denorio, however things start to turn not what it seems.

Don't look for Transparent Machines to be released for a while. The game is currently targeted for a launch sometime in the first half of 2016.
