Great job on this one. The words flow, the setting is rife with realism and sci-fi in equal measures. There was a movie not too long ago that reminds me of this place, but I can't remember the name of it.
Love the paranoia of the residents based on the "here you can die slowly of suffocation..." comparison
Great writing here! From the tag line on, makes me sit up and pay attention. Can't help but feel sorry for these guys. Good job in bringing out the emotional angle. Good voice in this piece! Here's hoping that someday they'll find their Paradiso, be it real or abstract.
Last thought. Strolen will probably hit me with a rolled-up newspaper for mentioning spelling but...
*because* this is a fun read and a great resource for pulling ideas for games, can you please go back and do a once-over on spelling? Things like holocost, beaurarcy, mongole, expairment, etc. the amount of typos is just a bit jarring. Go to Comment
