A few years from now the American Dream is finally dead. The great digital golden age, when nerds were gods of industry – forging the internet, building robots, creating the future itself – was its last gasp. The offices are empty: bought out, liquidated, or simply left to rot. In this world the only steady job — your job — is to sift through the leftovers.
You are Mila, a broke college grad from an immigrant family trying to make a living. Your client wants you to inventory an old eccentric office space in search of some high-value tech. But what begins as a typical corporate salvage job becomes a descent into a century of illegal government research: mind manipulation, identity reconstruction, all to protect citizens against foreign influence.
It gets inside your head and begins to drive you mad. Or is it setting you free? To find out, you must come face-to-face with The Myth Machine.
The Myth Machine is a “tech-gothic” immersive mystery set in a near-future world of crumbling start-ups. Inspired by speculative sci-fi like Black Mirror, The Myth Machine confronts the dark side of modern technology and tech start-up culture.
