STORY IDEA #222: Polygon

A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#222: Polygon

Ready Player One meets Tron.

In the future, there is a world of AI's. These AI's are made up of everything from software that runs our toasters, to virtual assistants, to complex faux-life. They all exist and populate a world called TwoPoint. As in 2.0.

We're able to interact with these AI's by putting on a VR suit and going into TwoPoint.
So then you could have all sorts of adventures and mysteries. I guess the first one you'd go to is that people are dying in their VR suits. And it's up to a Techie (a sort of future detective) to go in and investigate what's happening. And we'd probably find out that some faux-life has found a way to kill people through their VR suits.
