Temple of Syrinx (2112)

By A. J. Mako

Release 3

Welcome to the year 2112! You are about to experience a classic interactive fiction, set in a far future world. The Temple of Syrinx takes place in a community dominated by the technocratic Priests. You, an unsettled soul and citizen of the community, have spent what little unscheduled time you have searching for peace and tranquility.

The Priests of the Temple of Syrinx provide for your every need. In exchange, they ask only for the power to control every aspect of your life. The Priests, and their Great Computers, decide where you live, what you eat, when you work, and when you can sleep. They decide what you can say, and what you can think, and monitor every square millimeter of your community.

Like many of your fellow citizens, you yearn for the freedom to choose your own path. Like all of your fellow citizens, you dare not express these feelings. To speak against the Priests, or any of their dictates, is to speak against the community itself. Prison awaits those who undermine the community. Death awaits those who defy the Priests.

The Priests are in total control. Art and music are strictly controlled. Only thoughts and expressions approved by the Priests are allowed. Citizens like you are compelled to present any discoveries to the Priests for evaluation. And, citizens like you are always willing to report non-conformance. To do otherwise is… well… non-conformant.
