People who have tried it explain that the game starts with an introduction with scrolling textin the purest Star Wars style, which lasts… eight minutes.
This introduction tells that there is an imbalance between masculine and feminine energy: men are becoming sterile and women “more masculine”, which will cause the end of humanity. The protagonist will try to save the world with the help of an artificial intelligence that travels through time.
The game handles concepts more typical of the last century, such as the man they have the energy of Thoughtand the womenthe one of Feeling…so we’d better leave it here.
