What is Future Unknown?
Future Unknown is an adventure game playing with a scenario of the possible future. It is meant to instigate ideas and explore what might be next in our evolution.
Future Unknown is the by-product of the curious mind of one-man team of Cosmin – Game Designer from Games Design and Art at the University of Southampton.
The future has interested me for as long as I remember. Finding awsome stuff on the internet about the latest technologies and how they improve life always got me going. For a while now I also thought about the downsides of such technology, as everything always comes with a cost.
I did explore views of it through different games such as Deus Ex or Mass Effect. While I did share ideas on how the technology affects the future, some of mine were not present to the degree that I wanted. Of course I took the first opportunity to express them and share them through this project.
I also enjoy hearing other people’s opinion on the subject, so the secondary motivation behind the game is to instigate discussions about the possibilities of our close future.
