Explore the worlds of Californium, a first person exploration game where you are a writer trapped into shifting realities. Will you find what’s behind the simulacra ?
Californium is inspired by the life and works of the american sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick. It is also part of a transmedia project with a documentary called “The Worlds of Philip K. Dick”.
Berkeley, 1967. You are Elvin Green, a writer whose career is not better than his sentimental life. Besides, the day starts badly : your wife Thea left you a break up letter. As for Eddy, your editor, he summons you : “you are a writer who does not write” – you should find yourself another editor. Your world is falling apart. Too much acid and cheap booze ? Too many sleepless nights stuck to your typewriter, powerless to tackle your first novel ? Your brain perceives a signal, the Theta – which seems connected to your collapsing emotional state – shows that there could be a way out : this world is unstable, you can extract yourself from it and thus access another reality! You have nothing to lose!
