From the introduction:
A great storm came crashing over us. It shattered the world into fragments. We watched the countless, shimmering shards swirl and dance. Around us, the world has started to take forms again. Soon Sunrise will come, and we will step out into a beautiful new existence in our crafted forms.
Sunrise is a game with three core concepts: giving and accepting compliments, learning from your friends, and creating yourself anew.
