2084 is a dystopian interactive fiction inspired by George Orwell’s 1984. The audience plays a detective robot who investigates a case of missing persons and reveals the conspiracy orchestrated by the technology giant O’Brien Group promoting mind-uploaded services. The topic of the project is that when human memory and consciousness can be transformed into data storage, those who own these data will have the right to modify the personality and memory of digital humans, and even modify history.
