I have begun work on a new visual novel project called Project: Android.
Set in the year 2060 where social and economic problems still loom despite visible societal improvement in past few decades. You follow the point of view of the main character Robert, a single 37 year old factory worker living in what citizens describe as a ‘Coffin home’ flat about 20sq.ft. in size where facilities are communal, considered the lowest form of housing in society.
After a stressful day at work Robert enters a magazine competition to try and win a bigger house but ends up with the runner-up prize, an Android.
In this universe Robot Beings gained sentience in 2037 and were eventually given citizenship and equal pay for their work although they can still be bought by Humans for services, modern androids are almost Human in touch but require knowledge in order to function to full potential. Robert will have to share his life in his ‘Coffin Home’ With his new Android as per the legal ownership agreements.
How will life with an Android fair for Robert between his day job and his tiny home? Find out in Project: Android.
Current Flat backgrounds:
More updates will be regular and game will be playable within a reasonable amount of time given it passes a certain threshold in development.
