Creative

object.type(3) is an interactive transmedia story. Gay trans cyborg warrior monks have been neurologically integrated into a military AI system, stationed in virtual reality chambers across the globe, and forced to fight against a rogue superintelligence.

Features mind-controlled drone swarms, VR battles with mythical monsters, gay romance, trans intimacy, and AI ethics.

Combines a choose-your-own-adventure narrative, glitch aesthetics, ARG elements, and multimedia hypertexts that provide fragmentary perspectives into the world’s mysterious events and characters.

I add a new volume to the story once per year.
