ARTYS, a cleverly crafted narrative/puzzler made for the Ludum Dare 36, in which you tell an ancient robot about life on your world and the robot tells you what caused the destruction of its civilization.
You have found a robot left to rot inside an abandoned building. This robot hums to life, curious about your civilization and how you have come to find it. At first, it cannot remember much about what happened to the people that created it or the people that were on this planet. Instead, it focuses on asking you questions about technology and the way people are in your world.
You can write in your own answers for these questions – speaking back and forth with this robot. It is quite engaging, interested in how your civilization is going after theirs had died. After a while of talking, you will find this robot will fade out – some issues in programming. The robot will need your help in turning it back on by pushing buttons on its body. Once it is back up and running, the conversation will continue. Maybe if speak long enough, you’ll even be able to trigger its memory, and learn about what happened to the robot’s previous civilization!
