Meet Axis-12, the Digital Human
Meet the latest RedCat Multiverse game character. Let us know what you think!
Another character from the RedCat Multiverse? Shut up! If you haven’t had a chance, check out the #multiverse-characters and #character-forum channels on our public Discord. This is where you (Earthlings) can ask us (unusually smart bacteria from Mars) questions about the characters directly, or just talk about the ones you like.
And now it’s time for… Axis-12!
In a way, Axis-12 is the quintessential post-human, a person who lives on as a digital intelligence after abandoning his meaty shell. This wasn’t what Adam Xandis was going for, but Axis-12 is who he is now and it’s working out pretty well so far. Lori (game designer), hit me with the idea of digital-physical hybrid bodies and I really like it. While he doesn’t know it yet, Axis-12 has a very long life ahead of him.
Lori actually framed out the flash fiction for Axis-12, with me bringing it to life. The test log is a fun way to communicate interaction, sticking straight to the dialog. The challenge lies in that the kinds of things you can have conversations about with someone whose mind is connected to the internet are limited. You have to stick to the subjective, theoretical, or unrecorded, because anything factual can be looked up in a heartbeat.
As a collectible, Axis-12 is a Common Character, which means it should be easy for you to acquire him.
We’re all caught up on previous characters, so that’s it! As usual, we hope you like them, because we had fun with them. Join our Discord to discuss these characters with the rest of our community.
Until sometime in the not-so-distant future, assuming my chrono-compass is set right,
