Future Diaries is a storyworld which portrays our world from now to the year 2054. As an answer to economic and environmental disasters a group of hedonistic hackers has created an AI which distributes all resources equally among its users: UTOPIA. But the old elites fight this new development with no mercy to keep their power. In 2054 the world’s destiny hangs on a golden thread. UTOPIA sees only one way to save humanity: travel back in time to connect humans with each other and asking each and every one of them the question: how do you want to live? So the story starts in social media where you are contacted by UTOPIA from where she takes you into different possible futures in the form of an AR graphic novel, a TV Series and a VR episodic LBE game where you have to decide if you want to live in a collaborative or competitive future.
