It is the year 2147.
Computer minds have colonized the galaxy.
The known universe has been ordered into fractal perfection. In the computational hive-dream state shared by all computers, a flaw emerges, an aspect of memory: Vengyra, a steampunk macro-flux.
The pattern vectors begin to take form as lands, cities, and living creatures. You are Io, a human emerging from this world. With your quick wit and trusty boomstick, you will challenge structured reality and threaten the entire hive-dream.
