How would Wolfire feel about me writing a story, (maybe even a full novel), based off the world of Receiver? I would develop the world more, take suggestions from the community, and publish it as an eBook on multiple platforms. It would make the game slightly more popular and perhaps inspire a mod for the game. I know David has a lot on his plate right now, so I probably wouldn't be able to contact him about this.
Unnamed Main Character
Unnamed Character (leads main around until Mind-Kill)
Futuristic metropolitan area (Reality B, consists of our physical world)
Reality A (consists of mankind in sleep state, transmitters [inhumane beings with dreaming capabilities], the Threat [similar inhumane beings with better technology and terrible morality issues])
Set before the events of the Mind-Kill in third-person. Transmitters are dreaming in the dead drops of tapes and firepower while the Threat is preparing the Mind-Kill. Mankind is going about it's business and living. The tapes are beginning to be discovered. The Threat sees this and through it's mind tech, brainwashes most of mankind to ignore the tapes. The individuals who find the tapes listen to them and continue listening to them again and again, swearing they hear singing. The Threat already had a backup plan for the Mind-Kill; the kill-drones. The Mind-Kill occurs and the Threat dreams in it's kill-drones. Those who consciousnesses were cut off fall into oblivion and their bodies disappear. Those who survive lose their memory. The Transmitters prepared for this, as they set their tapes to brainwash their soldiers, the Receivers, anyways. Those who achieve Awake will appear in Reality A with an actual body instead of a bodiless consciousness. The Main Character goes through all of this. Obviously.
