Cyber Space is an experimental narrative game in which all interactions and outcomes are controlled by human voice. Driven by conversations with different Artificial Intelligence characters, it is a playful journey through space that acts as a metaphor for the vast, mediated, together-but-alone context of our lives lived through the internet.
Cyber Space explores the emotional and social implications of human-like conversations with natural-language computing and programming, and ultimately, how voice-activated technologies can impact the relationships we have with each other.
It also questions some of our existing assumptions about human intimacy and attachment through an interactive narrative and by incorporating other users simultaneously connected to the game.
