“Journey of fulfillment/futility & dreams/destruction & stereotypes/(trouble)shooting” is about the tropes and archetypes of a hero’s journey as a guise for the pursuit of fulfillment and escapism in life. There is emphasis on the second person and subtle hints throughout the game suggesting state machines and power structures. The music, edited by Dasul Kim, is a mix of slowed down circus music and factory sounds.
