Ship of Theseus
A downloadable story for Windows
Imagine one day you wake up in a man’s body. You could not remember who you are. The new reality for you is that you are Michael, a philosophy professor at the University of Cambridge. You try to live Michael’s life: giving lectures, supervisions, and talks at conferences. Even though you know nothing about philosophy, people agree with whatever you say. Gradually, you discover the complicated relationships around Michael between academics and students. In the meantime, you find your past overlaps with Michael's... Can you get back to your body? Can you handle the secrets you will discover? Will your path cross with Michael’s? All these questions are left for the player to discover.
The game is more than just a Visual Novel. It will contain puzzles about interesting philosophical knowledge, mechanics to present the complicated relationships, and most importantly, a distinct, rich storyline.
