About the Story

You never know what will be the last thing you say to someone. On a transport ship leaving earth, a passenger kills time by scrolling through the messages of their social media feed. As the ship leaves and moves further and further away from home, the delay between sending messages and their arrival lengthens. What feels like minutes on the ship is hours, days, weeks, even years back on Earth. Each refresh of the timeline is a tiny window into the past. What will you do in those precious few moments as the lives of everyone you know pass by?

The Tragic And Hilarious Adventure That Is 'Killing Time At Lightspeed'
"Asimov meets Orwell, a dark adventure into a world having taken a divergent path from today's earth, one which perhaps exists for the sole reason of showing us the human condition will be the same regardless of how advanced we become."

Wot I Think: Killing Time At Lightspeed
"Something Iím very much looking forward to is seeing the visual novel increasingly mature away from creepy adolescent dating simulators toward more interesting topics. Itís already happening, of course, but itís safe to say the genre has a ďnormĒ. A lovely example of something utterly different is Killing Time At Lightspeed, a science fiction tale of future technologies and future travel, told through the medium on social media."
