Gone are your human limbs and soft skin, replaced with six bony legs and a hard chitinous armor… and what’s that on your head? Antennae!? And why is everything around you suddenly so enormous? The world around you hasn’t grown, it’s you that’s shrunk. You’re an insect!
You play as Gregor, an ordinary salesman who, for some reason, has experienced an unbelievable and unexplained metamorphosis. To understand what has happened to you and how you can regain your human form, you must traverse the nooks and crannies of an apartment, in search of a mysterious organization called Tower, which is offering you a job!
The world you’re exploring is bizarre and amazing. You’ll quickly realize that you aren’t the only human trapped in an insect’s body as you become familiar with a complex society that values bureaucratic order above all else.
