Plot

In the near future, some artificial intelligence has managed to take control of other systems and traditional governments. The result of this event was the migration of society to a world governed by a global neural network that constantly optimizing people's experience by processing their personal data.

The main hero of the game is Nathan, one of the few people who rebelled against the new order. Thanks to the modified augmented reality set, Nathan is able to turn off the digital world and see it as it really is. He earns money by smuggling unauthorized hardware and software, and shares the apartment with his girlfriend Jay, who specializes in creating AR graffiti with the help of drones. One morning, however, his beloved disappears, leaving behind a damaged set of augmented reality and a mysterious message on the mirror. To find out the truth about Jay's fate, Nathan will discover her connections to a group of hackers and during his journey he will visit places such as the hardware graveyards or the guild of AR technomancers.

VirtuaVerse is a monument of pixel art and synthwave. An eye-catching and ear-pleasing journey to the 80's that revives the dusty point'n'click adventure genre.
