Arcadia is the name of the game, containing a world where there’s no line between reality and virtual reality. This world is controlled by S4Y, the organic CPU with incredible AI capacity, positioned inside the main building of Arcadia. If you would look out over the city, you would know which building it is because of the Siren, a powerful signal transmitter on top of the building that provides the citizens with the Final Generation Network, with limitless speed. All of Arcadias communication, news, and other information is sent out from that building. As the siren pushes all those ones and zeroes up in the sky it creates a blinding light which forces people to wear S4Y’s protective AI lenses, or they would eventually go blind. The lenses also works as a smart-device, providing social media, news and more, right in front of your eyes.
What the people don’t know is that the lenses also enables augmented reality. When a person wearing them might see something that can be negative about S4Y, reality changes to something more S4Y-positive. S4Y can’t control the citizens of Arcadia, but it controls every piece of information that reaches them, making them slaves without them even knowing it. The great security that surrounds S4Y consists of thousands of cameras monitored by the CPU itself, and the AI police force, led by Mr Rowzell. He is the first ”hybrid-human” prototype and was handpicked by S4Y because of his huge ego. His mentality makes him easy to control and the chip installed in his neck puts him in motorized control by S4Y. A perfect marionette displayed as the role model of Arcadia.
The one that plays the game, enters Arcadia as Apoc: the outsider that’s been living off the grid, unaware of the way regular people live their lives. Shocked by what he sees, he sets out on a mission to end the control of S4Y and make people live freely, making their own choices based on true information.
