Game Overview:

    In a dystopian future where the world has been overcome by apocalyptic cicada swarms, you have grown up in a bunker under the watchful eye of the "Administrator." At the age of 17, you have to have a chip installed which makes you a permanent resident of the bunker, or you can leave the safety of your home for life out in the wasteland. 

    You're not the only one who has to make a choice. Wendel is training hard to prepare to leave the bunker, while Augustine is reading up on what life outside might be like. What choice are you going to make?

    See if you can get all 8 endings to the story and watch the world change depending on your choices. Your progress on the endings you have found will be saved even if you close out of the web page. You can delete your save data from the options menu.
