About the Story"The deal was done without any organic handshakes. Global United Manufacturing purchased Computextual Services at 1:04:02 PM (GMT), on November 27, 2077. Within seconds, everyone was fired. GUM only wanted the most important assets, and people stopped being important assets about twenty years ago."
A text based cyberpunk adventure/choice-game/history-sim. Game by Austin Walker; art by Steve Kim; music by Scott Hallam.

by E. W. B.The choice of random input based solely on the player's aesthetics in not a new idea. From pretentious to extremely pretentious, the virtual human did it, First Draft of the Revolution did it, Hollywood Visionary did it. In A(s)century, Austin Walker does it, and does it right. Most of the choices raise one attribute or another. At first it's not clear what these are and how the options are related to them, but this gets increasingly clear as the game progresses.
What differentiates A(s)century from there is a bonus ending. (Spoiler - click to show)The game mocks its own shallowness and lets you write your own end. Still, the presence of something to search for makes it interesting, a little like in One Week.
