About the Story

Correcting bugs in video games wasn't supposed to be like this. Then again, S.hip of Theseus isn't a typical game. As a titan, you maintain the real-world experience of the game players. When you lose contact with one of them, the fix isn't a bit of code. It's real. And the problem is much more dangerous than you ever expected.

Gaia's Web puts a different spin on the conspiracy established in the fictional game S.hip of Theseus and prepares you for S.hip's official sequel, Re.constructing the Ship of Theseus. The secret is out; it's up to you to uncover it.

Inception meets Brazil, June 29, 2016

A fun conspiracy theory story with light, mostly-fair puzzles, good writing, and good characters. Linear high-level structure, but with decent room for exploration and trying different approaches in the first two sections. For a spoilerly but incomplete look at the first section, see the Club Floyd transcript from 3/20/2016.
