/THE YEAR IS 2489.
Acid rain rots away exposed rebar in the half-developed megacity once known as Toronto. Humanity modifies itself at a frequency never seen before. A housing crisis not only endangers the market, but the displaced and unhoused. One dilapidated house, only referred to as The Commons, is the the center of our story. What was once meant to be a safe haven has turned against every occupant to have dwelled within.
You can’t remember how you got here, and you are trapped inside. You must use a strange deck of memory cards holding the recorded memories of the past and present residents to manipulate time and navigate the house.
Exorcise the poltergeists that have taken over the house, descramble digital memories, free your trapped ally, and make it out with your mind intact.
