If you love dark and horror fantasy, then there is no doubt that you will absolutely love this game.

Overview: This is a story that makes you believe that fate is worse than death. I recommend you read the short collection first before you play the game because there are several horrifying scenes that will either make you want to play the game or haunt you to bed.

The Story: The plot of the video game revolves in America, Russia, and China creating a subterranean complex of high technology. It is too difficult for humans to understand. The supercomputer soon started killing people but left one woman and four men. They are the only ones left on Earth to be tortured. However, through the research of the AM, these five survivors will find ways in order to defeat the opponent.

Just imagine yourself as an immortal and being tortured by AM because you are one of the chosen playthings. Ellen is the only woman in the story, a 2-dimensional character had been turned into a sexual slave and was used by the four men in the group. One of the guys, Benny, who was a gay in the earlier part of the story had turned straight again but he was transformed into a mutant with a suspiciously large penis. Gorrister and Nimdok are the other guys of the chosen playthings of the story.

As you play this game, you will eventually answer the question, “Why did he choose these five individuals?”  AM will soon challenge these five characters into playing a game, playing with their biggest fears and meddling with their own flaws. However, you know too well that even if he promised that he will set them free once they win the game, he will never do anything he promised.

If you’re thinking of the Saw body-horror games, then you are wrong. For instance, one of the guys, Gorrister is suicidal. His wife was killed a hundred years ago. He found himself in a seppelin and was now provided with all the ways to commit suicide. However, he received help from a talking jackal which made him surpassed the game.

However, this game wasn’t made to be completed by anyone. By the time every character had been able to complete each of their games, they are lifted into a new level where they discover that AM cannot be defeated. If they win the game, they will only be turned into a blob monster…which sucks after hours spent in order to win the game. The end of the story is simple—humanity is completely wiped out. That’s it.
