Take on the role of Karl Carbon, an ex-cop turned social worker charged with helping needy humans, hybrids and sentient machines AKA 'Silicanths'. Dishonorably discharged from the Coastlandia Police Department for disobeying an order to shoot an unarmed alter-human, Karl has been helping the poor and downtroddent get back on their feet at the Department of Sentient Services. Till one day a case goes horrible sideways and and Karl is drawn into a sordid conspiracy that could threaten the very fabric of Human-Robot-Hybrid civilization.
Skycastles soared above the wreckage of dark, polluted, plumbing-free urban wastelands. The money-controlled facade of democracy was finally stripped away, and the short-sighted, volatile churn of "free market competition" tossed out. Monarcho-capitalism became the de facto world system: enclaved castle-cities ruled by CEO-Kings who provided food, shelter, and job security to a select few family members, and useful subject-employees. The 99%, the lazy, the talentless, the unrefined, were no longer coddled by welfare checks and public roads and “food stamps”. Left to fend for themselves in the barbaric “democracy” of the “Lower Earth.”
