Here Is My Power Button

Description

Here Is My Power Button is an intimate near-future American Freeform game about relationships, identity, and power for players age 18 and up. It features an asymmetrical play experience about humans interacting with artificial intelligence.

Participants playing AI will experience learning from the examples of the human with whom they interact. Between interactions, they will experience enrichment activities designed to build their personhood.

Participants playing humans will workshop a character who has found reason to engage in a focus group for testing a companion AI. Their ongoing experience will focus on their personal AI's development among other human participants, and with the failsafe of resetting any undesirable growth.

The core game structure will alternate between focus group meetings and one on one interactions between a human and their respective AI. Casting of humans/AI will happen at game; you will have an opportunity to express your level of interest, but try to come into the game being at least a little flexible.

As this is a game that incentivizes emergent relationships and emotional intimacy, we will workshop to establish general and specific boundaries before beginning play. Consider signing up with a buddy with whom you'd like to explore having an intense relationship.
