I am Steven, and I would like to welcome you to Apocalypse Theory. What, you may be asking, is this?
This is the in world site for my poems, stories, and hopefully one day video games.
As for who I am, I am a 30-something developer. I have been programming for over 20 years now, having started in my teens. In fact, I started programming in GW Basic on an old Tandy back in the early 90s.
The developer blog will be the only out of character portion of the site, you can come here if you want to hear me ramble about my work, my work environment, the challenges, and the joys of working from home.
Most of the site is written in character, and in world through the eyes of various characters. From the poor professor trying to make sense of his world falling apart around him, to the explorers of dark, and ancient ruins, to fathers simply trying to protect their families…. the characters of this world are all have their goals, and motivations. Yet all of them are drawn intolerably towards the shadows… only a few shall escape its clutches.
The world of Apocalypse Theory is set in is a dark dystopian world. Based in a world heavily influenced by the various punk genre’s, everything from steam punk to atomic punk, with even deeper Lovecraftian influences.
In some places the worlds seems like an idealistic Victorian society, yet under that thin veneer lies a depth of depravity, and wickedness which would shock most. Welcome to a world filled with eldritch horrors, godless machines, and most terrible of all… humanity.
I am pleased you will be taking this journey with me, a journey not only into my dreams but also, into my nightmares.
