What is Oraculum?
Oraculum is a 2D, point & click, exploration narrative set in the not too distant future in the troubled dystopian city of Europa. A radical vision of an alternative future, where society has split due to a new technological drug called Focus. In the city of Europa, the population is controlled by the mega corporation Oraculum, using the Focus drug to infiltrate their everyday lives.
Below the city, in the subterranean society of Lower Europa, a population of anti-Oraculum individuals who have rejected the artificial paradise of above, live in exile and poverty.
