Charlie The Robot

by Fernando Contreras


About the Story

Earth is overpopulated and low on resources: the puppies, the kitties, and the fishies are all gone. There are not enough jobs, yet Hiremy & Hirschl has employed robots as middle management staff, which causes much friction. According to the employees, Charlie the robot is malfunctioning. But it could be that Charlie is being bullied. And what is a Shrimp Shake?

Meanwhile, you are being tested by the ISG, and if you make the Elite® ranks, you'll be able to live on Mars and start a new civilization with people who are as intelligent as you. But the exam questions are suspect at best.

This is only the plot. Your job, really, is to find out the value of human existence.

IFComp 2017 Review: Charlie The Robot by Fernando J. Contreras
The ADD hyperactivity brings a level of incoherence to proceedings, sure, but this is balanced by the quality craftsmanship that has gone into constructing these sentences. So while the reader may be left confused about what the purpose of tangential short story followed by tangential short story is, there can be no doubt that those individual segments are all really, really, good. A slightly less schizophrenic presentation would have been appreciated, but overall, Charlie The Robot managed to overcome my initial misgivings to deliver a satisfying multi-media interactive thrill ride, well worth persevering with after the bumpy opening.
