Questions, comments, suggestions, critique in this thread please!Development controls:
When having played the game, you might feel like trying out editing some. To be able to edit, you must first edit the main.lua file and change:
_enableDev = false

after that, you can simply press F7 ingame. The rest is explained.

The crappy english is intentional! Read the story! -INTRO-Video here
"War - war changes all the time. During the sunrise of our nature, our ancestors learned the murder of sticks and stones, but we now use more complex things.
The weapons that kill themselves. Mankind has created effective weapon that in the end she exterminated herself. Now I have only one, and I am just a voice of the game. Playing in the games war that does not change when it is clearly required.
In the pit next to a shopping center is a new type of human diseases caused by the sick panda. 42 groove is closed.
He was born and raised here, you are here.
Hero of prophecy to predict our people to lead the world to recreate the grooves. Possible?
Living in the basement of medication changes."-STORY-
The disease of the great panda left the world in utter devastation. Human kind only survived modified as cyborgs gathered in small groups scattered across the torched globe. During the first gloomy years after the catastrophe, survivors shied away from eachother. Language was lost. When communities started to form the need for languages was provided by a 1000 year old hissing google translate server with a God complex, called Bob.
However, the reconstruction of human society did not go as planned. Along with civilization came all that is associated with it: famine, disease, war. Looking for answers, mankind blamed it all on the lack of social interaction. Becoming cyborgs meant loosing the ability to propagate - humans were made in small workshops and abandoned factories, genetic material grown in tubes combined with what ever scrap metal that was obtainable.
A prophecy foretells of a firstborn who will come and re instigate the natural way of making humans. Through the mists of time the means of propagation is taught by a special edition "Dirty Dancing" DVD-box, and it is believed that to gain the spark of life-creation one would have to revive an old dancing hall called "the Groove". But how this would be done is a knowledge long lost.
According to the prophecy the firstborn will go out in the wasteland to find the last living "real" human beings, thought to still be alive, bring them back and let them light the fires of the dancehall.
You are the firstborn.
