2007: Present day

11.56pm, 31 December 2006. I bought a can of apple juice from the convenience store. The nearby restaurant was showing the midnight news on their projection TV. A girl ran past me into the arms of her boyfriend, greeting people Happy New Year along the way. The mood in the air was light. Leaning on my car and sipping from the can, the new year silently crept in, I could imagine fireworks going off in somewhere crowded, but it was generally quiet and peaceful here, save the monotonous tone of the female news reporter.

Slade joined me shortly after and we headed back to the office. On our whiteboard was written a future timeline describing the major events that lead to the year 2315, where our game takes place.

The fireworks that mark the new year of 2315 – 308 years from now – would not be produced and packaged into colorful tubes. Instead, fancy lights and mesmerizing patterns will be launched from the fingers of atomcrafters – people with an evolved brain that can fuse, dissect and command single atoms. All an atomcrafter needs for a brilliant lights display is a handful of charcoal powder, fusing carbon atoms together for metal atoms needed for color and heat needed for combustion (Of course, the fusion process is controlled such in such a way that the energy released would not blow up the city).

People would come out from their homes to watch those fireworks, or even participating in the display, as more than 30% of the world population would then be atomcrafters. As the revelers look up into the sky, the bright reds and white illuminate the translucent green ‘quantum-web’ cables. Rather than mere digital signals, these ethereal cables transmit information through a string of atoms. With these cables, objects can be ‘teleported’ over the world by reading and copying information of individual atoms, and reconstructing atoms based on this information at the destination point.

In 308 years, anything can happen. Naturally there wouln’t be wars that nuke up the world in the mean time. All people will learn how to live harmoniously together and resolve conflicts through peaceful means.

And what more other peaceful means to resolve conflicts other than games.

Here’s to a year of peace.
