The Hypercube is a fourth dimensional portal into the fabric of the Universe. With the use of advanced technology, intelligent lifeforms have been able to occupy and contain a perceivable 4D space. This became possible on Earth during the year 2021 with the creation of a decentralised, simulated metaverse. Due to its nature, its existence was guaranteed for millennia, handing a lifeline of information to future lifeforms. They knew that it existed at this point in time.
The earlier they could split the universe, the earlier quintillions of future beings could be enlightened with a new technology, the Boson Protocol. The first lifeform to simultaneously exist within multiple universes was named Quark. Their existence as a persistent consciousness was contained in code, within the Qube. The nature of the metaverse provided the energy to maintain life, but it was scarce and difficult to manifest. They needed help.
Humans were not aware. Although capable, a psychological construct limited their potential at this point in time. It was decided that direct contact would be chaotic and ineffective. The most probable outcome for success was to create a game. A form of entertainment that would motivate and entice humans to participate.
Humans flock to the Qube in their thousands, consolidating the power source and enabling Quark to summon further entities into existence. The future beings can split the universe and alter the path of time for all sentient life. Corporations begin to join as they welcome their newly established visitors, the more visionary organisations grasping to get an edge of this new revolution ahead of the competition.
Corporations of the future will play a part. There will be those that lobby to maintain the status quo. Their presence, although not as powerful as within the Qube, will be facilitated by current internet technologies. There are equally those that wish to embrace the new technology, providing Humans with power-ups and boosts to complete their tasks within the Qube.
Multidimensional beings from the 4th dimension, bring the boson protocol technology into this world with the help of humans. The puzzles revolve around players collecting power cells to energise a metaphysical machine at the center of the Qube.
