CyberWare, Inc. has maintained a ruthless grasp over society for decades. They control the internet, they control the power, and worst of all: they're in people's bodies and minds. Through their prosthetics and implants, they retain their stranglehold on everyone's lives. These range from eyes, limbs, and even sets of skin - all of which have at least the functionality of a primitive smartphone.

But what happens when the world goes dark? What happens when a natural force, or perhaps an act of divine intervention, strikes CyberWare into a brief dormancy with a storm of lightning? In a period of silence, it is up to you to extract confidential information from within their company, so you can share the truth when the world is resumed.

No people, no internet, no surveillance. Just you, a bit of reserve power, and the dead.

I loved this, exploring what awful things a company has been doing during a 'period of silence' was a smart move. The animations to show time and show the character's online presence was refreshing, and the writing transitions between parts were smooth. The music really helped with the atmosphere, and I can't express how much I enjoyed the point and click mechanic. All components really came together to deliver a great horror story. Good luck, I look forward to your future content (and perhaps seeing more of fashion king Dante).

There is so much potential here. Artwork was great and the idea of seeing peoples memories is interesting. Also, the thought of such a company having so much control is scary and will create a great storyline. I am not a big fan of lot of reading in games, if it isnt something very gory or such. Otherwise this was great! Keep up the great work!

Really liked this short experience! The story is very intriguing and has a lot of potential to be as grusome as it is thought provoking.  I got a lot out of it even though playing it only took a few minutes. This has so much potential, I'd love to see it finished and I'll be looking out for any updates!
