Malaware/Maladjust

When Reio, a shut-in with the power to detect lies, discovers her cute next door neighbour is actually a terrorist, she suddenly finds herself on the frontlines of a years-long, city-wide conflict.

Malaware/Maladjust is a grey morality tale about the adventures of CYMK, a ragtag group of criminals fighting for control over the high-tech surveillance state, Marble City. In the slums of the city lives Reio, a paranoiac and DIY-freak with no friends. She thinks she and her strange next door neighbour, Lazuli, might get along, and is overjoyed by the serendipitous chance to meet her. They become fast friends. Lazuli's even going to show her around! By the time Reio realises that Lazuli's crew inhabits a dangerous world of cyberterrorism, vandalism, and theft, it's already too late. She cares about them too much to quit! In this story where everyone has something to hide, will Reio uncover the truth to protect her newfound friends?

Malaware/Maladjust will one day be a a fast-paced action-adventure visual novel that explores the nature of good and evil, truth and lies, and what it means to be human. Right now it's just a bunch of ideas kicking around in my head.

I'm very excited about this story and these characters, so I want to tell it to you as soon as possible. But I also want to make this part of my website really unique to fit with the story I'm trying to tell. That means it will take a while to get everything set up. In the meantime, you'll just have to make do with this bare HTML version. Sorry!

Come back later?
