CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE WORLD AND STORY IN WHICH THE GAME TAKES PLACE?
You play Flynn Lightman, a highly skilled avatar pilot who can control androids from the safety of his apartment using advanced VR hardware. You are contracted by a client to infiltrate STRIDE Industries, a company that specializes in data security and advanced robotics. Your journey takes you into the depths of a heavily defended high-tech facility as you discover its darker intent.
WHAT WERE THE INSPIRATIONS FOR THE GAME? ANY PARTICULAR GAMES OR GENRES THAT YOU BASED THE GAME ON?
We were inspired by a world on the brink of being dominated by big digital companies and self-aware AI. Movies like iRobot, Ghost in the Shell, Ex Machina, and The Matrix were an inspiration.
IT SEEMS LIKE A LITTLE COMPANION JOINS YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY?
That’s R.EXE, a bit of an over-enthusiastic robot dog that Flynn runs into when infiltrating STRIDE Industries. He isn’t just tagging along; he is turns out to be quite useful when hacking your way through the facility.
