A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

"I heard a lot of crazy stories about the Eternal Flame Triad.
Some say they inject parasites in corpses to take over their brains.
Others say they implant chips in their spines to control them remotely
Like a robot made of flesh.
Tell me Yu-jie...
You're not a robot, are you?

Try to follow a conversation while dealing with that fucked up machine called a human body.

This is great idea!

It makes me think about the Chinese room argument from a new perspective: even if you are a human it is still hard to distinguish yourself from AI when the output channel is limited.

I find this rather fun. The premise reminds me a lot of Manual Samuel.

The only thing I have left to do is learn about the Triad's plans. The rest is pretty much done.

Question,What is a QWERTY keyboard?

I like this kind of hectic fun! I think I'm just about getting the hang of being human, now to see if I can do more than just listen...
