Journey into Space to Save the Ones You Love

You are Prometheus, the son of the most important scientist in history. Your father is dying. How far will you go to save him?

Set over a hundred years in the future, Loading Human explores the powerful relationship between science and humanity, love and loss. With your father, Dorian Baarick, trapped in a life-extending device of his own creation, you’re faced with an impossible decision. To survive, he needs the power of the Quintessence, an energy source located across the galaxy that you, a scientist fresh out of training, have the ability to retrieve.

But your father isn’t the only person that matters to you. Alice, Dorian’s assistant, represents a tug in a different direction, a complication to your father’s wish. You’ll navigate interactions with her, experiencing incredible emotional depth through powerful virtual reality technology. As you develop a closer connection with characters like Alice and Dorian, you are drawn further into Prometheus’ world.

Loading Human dives deep into complex questions of familial and romantic love, duty and sacrifice, science and romance. Step into a realistic vision of the future in which nothing is quite as it seems.
