In the footage above, the AI is working with a new branch of the CPA (Corporate Police Agency), headed up by Thompson, a lead Detective. Together they’re on the hunt for a human trafficker: Mueller. Previously skeptical of the AI’s value, actions and decisions taken up to this point have proven to be a valuable resource in piecing together Thompson’s cold cases. The CPA until recently didn’t have enough evidence to bring him in, until now.
Faced with moral dilemmas as the story unfolds, this fully voice-acted adventure sees the choices you make directly change not only the direction the story takes but also its eventual outcome.
