so i know this game is getting a fair influx of hype now that spoony mentioned it in his scary game series
i have no mouth and i must scream
holy balls you guys
game was based on a short story by harlan ellison who also wrote a ton of extra dialogue for each character's separate chapter and did a voice in the game itself.
basic plot - china, russia and america all create a separate super computer designed to run wars too complex for humans to undertake during the cold war, which develops into the third world war. america's computer, AM (allied mastercomputer/adaptive manipulator) becomes self-aware and absorbs the other two computers, causing it to have power over china, america and russia. AM discovers he hates people and orchestrates the genocide of humanity, keeping only five people alive - four men and one woman.
AM keeps these five alive and tortures them, mentally and physically, for 109 years. he then decides to give each character a chance in participating in a little 'game' where he forces them to face their past and other such fun stuff.
i dunno if i have a favourite character... i like anyone who isnt ted, but i love gorrister and nimdok. im blaming engineer and medic from tf2, respectively.
i dont really want to gush about everything in the game, so uh. here. listen to the intro. ellison voices AM himself, and he has one crazy motherfucker of a voice. i mean gosh. i know the art is a bit outdated, but that monologue is fabulous.
*edit for forgetting the fucking video hhhhngh
