"We stand on the last promontory of the centuries! ...Why should we look back, when what we want is to break down the mysterious doors of the impossible?”
Filippo Tommaso Marinetti

World War Machine takes place after a cataclysmic mass extinction event has decimated all forms of organic life on Earth. Before the end of civilization, millions of human beings were able to upload their minds into a vast computer network – transforming themselves into artificial intellects. The remains of our planet are now populated solely by these intellects and machines of their creation.
During the cataclysm, the computer network that worked to maintain millions of uploaded human minds was shattered – breaking into three major Nodes and countless smaller ones. Each Node continued running its own group of intellects, though their minds were flawed by the damage. Operating on corrupted hardware, these intellects have been divorced from their memories of humanity and the goals for which they were created. With their minds broken and spread across multiple platforms, the artificial intellects fell into chaos and a perpetual war erupted between the three main network nodes.
The battles that rage through the sterilized ruins of human civilization are fought by hundreds of thousands of Machines – humanoid robots outfitted for various tasks of war, each imbued with an artificial intellect from a parent Node. If destroyed, the Machine transmits its intellect back for reconstitution in another Machine. The fight continues, and the war will never end.
Countless battles have been planned and fought by viciously clever intellects who are entrenched on well defended Mainline Nodes, blind to their own madness. This war has been fought for over five hundred years in perfect equilibrium with no end in sight...
...until one day, a lone Machine remembers.
Running on the Rome network Node, this node reacts quickly and venomously to threats both real and perceived. The core intellects here believe that meaning and order create suffering. They actively hate their human precursors and consider them responsible for creating this hellish world. They will often vandalize or rubbleize human ruins. Abaddon intellects will seek to destroy or disrupt any organization that they can find in the world – including the other Nodes.
We’re in the process of building our first playable demo. It’s exciting times and we really want to share in-progress ideas with you. We have our ideas about what’s cool about our game, but we need your help to confirm or deny our suspicions.
Tuque is a small studio and we wanted to share our ideas with as many people as possible: we thought that this was the best way to do it. All the games on Collective do not receive any money from Square-Enix, but we do benefit from their awesome fans like you to help get the word out about what we hope will put a smile on your face.
