To my fellow Elliquians,
So lately I've been mulling over an idea for a group game and I think I've come up with something that might (hopefully) be appealing to some of you out there.
The 'inspiration' for this group game came from a show I've been watching on AMC called Humans
. You can find more information about it here
. The basic premise is this:
"Set in suburban London, the story takes place in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a synth – an android robot eerily similar to a human in nearly every respect."
Synthetic beings (or synths for short) are utilized in nearly ever facet of society: Labor/industry, household needs and even the business of pleasure.
Anyways, I think it would be interesting to move the setting to the States, ideally New York City. For this to work I think there would need to be a mix of human and synth characters.
The story would deal with the different relationships between human and synths as well as the implications that this kind of technology has in relation to society. Some might be perfectly accepting of this while others find them to be detrimental to society. This would be an interesting concept to explore overall.
I don't have much in the way of specific plot but gladly encourage input from interested parties. Leave a post here if you have thoughts regarding this idea or if you're interested in the concept.
