Ever wanted to give up your arms, legs, musculoskeletal system, and hopes for the future, all to spend eternity in a glass jar? Well now you can! Welcome to Big Brains in Little Jars, the Sci-Fi adventure game that puts you in the shoes–or, er, jar–of a “brain-for-hire.”
As a valued appendage at a company called Gray Matter, you’ll be hired by clients to do the thinking, speaking, acting, and decision-making for them–when you’re not trying to escape, that is. Befriend your clients, make loyal companions out of your fellow brains, stir up trouble for the company that has imprisoned you, start riots, solve riddles, punch coworkers, drink more punch than humanly possible–and oh yes. If you’re not too busy, you’ll probably want to find your jar before someone can stuff your brain down the garbage disposal.
Good luck, brain-for-hire.
About the game:
“Big Brains in Little Jars” is a 300,000-word (approx. 40,000-word per playthrough) interactive sci-fi novel. It has no gender element (you’re just a brain) and no romance (seriously, you’re just a brain). It does, however, have adventure, exploration, riddle-solving, troublemaking, self-driving cars, and a Sarcasm stat. There is mature language and moderate violence.
I’m hoping to get it published, so I’m opening up this beta test because I’d love any feedback y’all can throw at me. See a typo? Feel like a scene isn’t working? Want to punch a certain character in the face? Did punch a certain character in the face and now feel guilty about it? I want to hear it all!
Thank you all in advance!
