“When fossil fuels were depleted, it was time for a change. But it never came. The discovery of a new superconductive material made sure the cycle never broke.”
This is the way their world ends, not with a bang but a whisper.
Society crumbled over time, falling into a state of disarray. Innovation became stagnation. Progression to regression. Not future, nor past. An industrial era haunted by the ghost of what came before. Mankind, their mentality ever worsening as idle habits fed into the City. Unified and tortuous it swallowed what remained of their humanity. Stealing away their free will, their determination. Crushing their souls until nothing remained. Madness.
Desperate for an alternative way to regain the glory of Old, Scientists searched for a remedy.
Until they found something. Something that should have been left alone.
Mindless citizens, the needed catalyst. Transforming them. Adapting their flesh. Mere dolls. Cruel monsters.
Discover the truth of these broken lives in the lore of Steamdolls : Order of Chaos.
