Intro

Many years ago there was a world, our world. Then everything was destroyed. A natural disaster wiped out every trace of life on the face of Earth. But the end of the world did not coincide with the end of humanity.

In the silence of underground bunkers, the seed of a new generation was preserved in cryogenic cells by an artificial intelligence. They would wake up, and rebuild the future. That was the mission.

But there could be a future without a past?

"I slowly regain consciousness, wrapped in the warmth of the semi-darkness. I am cold, but I am alive. I can't move, stuck in this cocoon that envelops me, am I sure I'm alive?

I slept and I dreamed. There was a war, with all its horrors. The cold and the famine.... The chaos of desperate screams under a sky that became darker than night. And then, only silence.

But who am I? What am I doing here? What has happened? Am I still dreaming? My eyes are open now, what I see around me is unfamiliar.

The only certainty I have is that I'm alive."

A metallic voice resounds into the room: "Rise and shine, Elects, all will be well" .

Experience

It all begins the moment the A.I., that rules the bunker and had control all the time over your bodies to keep you alive, wakes you up. You have no idea what there is outside the bunker, the whole of humanity has been wiped out and you are the only survivors, but most of all you have no idea who you are. The A.I. erased all your memories.

You are New-Born, you all look the same, the only distinguishing mark is represented by an identification code printed on the suit you wear.

But the human mind is complex, and memories quiver to return to the light.

During The Elects you will build both your character and the entire story. You can take a look at the mechanics on the DESIGN DOCUMENT.

During character selection, you will not choose an actual person, but one of the 16 personalities proposed through a psychological self-assessment test. This will allow you to start the game with some behavioural characteristics, and live your experience according to the chosen personality.

During the LAOG, however, you will have the opportunity to reconstruct the events that preceded your hibernation and your personal background through some Acquired Memories. During three distinct moments, you will be plunged into the past and play Flashback Scenes, introduced by a master, and then return to the main game with greater awareness of yourself and what happened.

You will be at the same time actors and spectators of a movie that winds its way from the past to the present.

Only after recovering each and every memory, will you be ready to choose your future. Blue pill or red pill?... But that's another story.

The Elects is a LAOG event by Proxima, for 32 players.

The game lasts 8 hours, from the early afternoon to late evening (GMT+1). An 1-hour pause is included.

The game takes place on the Discord platform. For an optimal experience it is recommended to install it on your PC, and to use headphones.

To participate it is necessary to wear a white or light-colored costume (medical gown style) in certain scenes, and a black or dark-colored one for the rest of the time.

There will be no character insights prior to the event, nor it will be necessary to read teasers or sheets.

The event takes place under a "Pay what you want"formula: players are free to determine the amount of their own donation to support the project.

Is it for me?

The game is mainly based on a collective experience, so it will develop "openly", depending on personal and group dynamics.

This event suits you if:

  • You are looking for an unique experience, and you love to experiment new game techniques.
  • You are fascinated by the idea of progressively discovering your identity and the game setting.
  • You are ok with discussing sensitive issues, as well as very strong and gory ones (remember that you can opt out in every moment, and that particularly strong scenes will be played just by characters marked as Hardcore).

This event DOESN’T suit you if:

  • You want to play a pre-written character, in a linear, well-defined way.
  • You are looking for a traditional and structured experience.
  • You need to play in a detailed, well known setting.
