In the future, mankind is nearly extinct.

Thanks to the dual rise of biotechnology and artificial intelligence, nearly all of humanity has been merged into a permanent “hive mind.” No longer do people think and feel as individuals, instead instantly sharing the sum knowledge of all of human history. To know one is to know them all, and to speak with one is to speak with them all. There is no more war, no more hate, no more jealousy–just as there is no more art, no more love, no more family, no more “self.”

There are precious few who still remain outside the “Net.”

Find your allies. Form your team. Locate the resistance. And watch your back; even the walls have eyes.
