He returned to his hometown to save it from the potential water pollution that would occur if they accepted the proposal to build an aerocraft factory nearby.

Ladies and gentlemen, our most valued customers and friends, a very fine evening to you! It's the moment we've long been waiting for - the grand opening of the Erotes Nightclub. It is not only a place of comfort and luxury, but also a proving ground of a cutting-edge scientific achievement: the state-of-the-art bionic humanoid robot, codenamed Erika will be at your service to satisfy your most wild sexual desires.
The recent breakthrough of synthetic tissue engineering has pushed scientific boundaries far beyond the imagination of our ancestors, and we are delighted to have you here to behold and enjoy such a special experiment: Is that possible to create a robot which has feelings and reactions like a person? Or let's take it a step further: Is that possible to create a synthetic body which is indistinguishable from a real human?
Erika will be the answer. Will she be the Aphrodite we all lust for? Or merely another lifeless sex doll waiting to be disposed of?
Fallen Doll is a simulation game in which you play as a research scientist deployed at Erotes Nightclub to moderate the test and implement improvements on an experimental sex robot named Erika. The true purpose behind this debauched display still remains to be discovered. The game features in-depth strategy, real-time next gen experience of a wide range of sexual interactions and character customizations, as well as a dystopian storyline inspired by The Brave New World. Try the demo and support the project on Patreon! The game is estimated to be completed early 2018.
We hope you are excited to hear more about all of these exciting titles! Keep an eye on our social medias, subscribe to our newsletter, and visit our blog to get all the details! Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth and attended our panel at AX!
