It is the distant future. Mankind is now extinct. The only intelligent life remaining is a committee of cyber-doplhins on Venus who have just perfected the process of creating artificial life in bio-factories. They are about to recreate the race of humans, but are fine-tuning the design by removing undesirable emotions.
Players take on the role of androids programmed with fake emotions, trying to defend such emotions as Honour, Guilt and Humility from being erased forever.
