Please note: This game is not in active development anymore due to lack of budget. Please stay tuned though because this doesn't mean that we'll never release it!

Technology is what keeps mankind evolving ... But what if technology turns against us?
What if our own innovation brings us our doom?

You're slipping in the role of Adam which is one of the developers who created the Chronos system which is an AI with a complete simulated personality. It has been announced as the biggest innovation of the century and is able to automatically replace all existing systems. But what happens next proves that innovation can also destroy everything ...

Now it's your mission to rescue the world. Grab your gun and shut Chronos down before it takes over more than the secret facility which it has been developed in.

About the Game

AI: The Awakening is a new innovative first person shooter (FPS) which puts you in the role of a scientist which just caused the world's biggest crisis. It's your mission to shut down Chronos which is about to take over the whole world with nuclear missiles and access to the whole world's infrastructure.

The game is currently in a pretty early state and many details will be revealed in the near future. In the meantime we're awaiting feedback from you! It's your turn to decide how the whole story evolves. Support us now by voting for this item here on Steam Greenlight and get a chance to contribute to a new great indie experience!

The Idea

Basically the idea of this game has been around for almost three years. Since then the team tested many different engines and improved their skills in developing game titles. Now we decided to really start off with a great new title to show that we're able to create an indie title which is better in telling it's story than most professional titles.

The project name is by the way not yet final and may change later on.


FAQ / important questions

Why are there only two languages planned?
Currently those two are the only ones our team can provide on a good level of quality. We may get some external translators for adding at least a subtitle translation for other languages later on if the concept turns out to work great.

The Project

The Evil-Co project itself exists since late 2009 and produced many open source products. Over the years the team changed a lot of times and the focus changed with them. At first we focused on basic web development but we experimented with game technologies for nearly three years now.

Additionally to creating great software which is enjoyed by their users, we do have a personal mission: We know that there are many people out there who deserve help in many different ways. So we decided to help out as much as possible and our current goal is to donate at least a part of our revenue generated by our games to organizations which really need our support. We believe that a small group of people can do a difference, too. Be part of it and help us with creating this great title.

Thank you for your support!
The Evil-Co Development Team

Hey everybody!

Today we sadly have a really sad announcement to make. In the past few months we had a lot of fun working on AI: The Awakening and the story around it but sadly we've to announce that this project is dead. This definitely doesn't mean that the franchise will be gone forever or that we'll stop working on games. In fact we're currently working on a new concept which we'd like to work on in the next months.

So don't worry! The franchise will return even though the budget we allocated for this project ran out completely. Thanks again for all your support, idea submissions and applications we received based on this project.

So as always: Stay tuned for more even though it might not be AI related!

Thanks again,

Johannes Donath

The attitude this team has is amazing, but i'm not quite sure what feedback we as a community can provide currently given the current information, since basicly we only know the idea and a small peice of the plot. I hope we can see some concept stuff soon

Thanks for your comment! We're working pretty hard on getting concept stuff ready (we basically have many different versions of the story lying around and it's really hard to decide which one will be the final one so we're holding everything back until it is final). Anyways the feedback part is already in the description for later if there is content to give feedback on ;-).

Best regards,
