Homunculus is a game about death, technology, and saying goodbye to loved ones when they die. It takes place in a near-future setting where technology has been invented to use data scraping of social media profiles to create artificial intelligence duplicates of people who have died in tragic accidents, which are then implanted into human-seeming clones. One person plays the duplicate, and everyone else plays loved ones. The game ends once everyone (excluding the duplicate) has decided whether they think the duplicate should continue to exist.

Reminiscent of an episode of Black Mirror, Homunculus by Anna Kreider brings to the surface all the conflicting emotions of what it’s like to have a loved one pass away and come back to life as an AI. As one player acts as the deceased/Homunculus, the other players are the connections to the deceased, who must decide whether to keep or remove the Homunculus. The game is tense and full of melancholy and we are very excited about it!
