Trapped in-between their goal and the many worlds that represent home; First Paradise takes place hundreds of years from today. Its story told between distant planets by distant people. All seen through an ascii/unicode interface and volumes of interactive-text sequences. This is the story of a post-human's spiral towards catatonia in the vast emptiness of interstellar space.
