Well based on the theme and the metadata keywords in the source code, I'm assuming this an alternate timeline. The car looks like the 50's/60's/70's.
I don't think the year matters, per se, since everything sort of reset/post apocalyptic~like. But we could probably determine when the timeline
changed from ours (likely a bit after the car was out, and the opera record was recorded).
Some sort of "apocalypse" happened (hence one meaning to "the end is just the beginning") and now energy is extremely regulated. Wave units seems to
use pure electricity or energy. Look at that citation for drinking, which used up some amount of power. There is some sort of regulation on children
too (permits to bury babies?). I'm wondering if that Family Extension form Eva Jacobs applied for is a permit to have a child. Walter LaFong's card is
even made of wood rather than paper, and they mentioned lumber shortages on one of the radio broadcasts, and it seems like all the props in Tapjoint
are made of wood (even Emerson's knitting needles).
Then this "Revolutionary" group, which includes Knobs, Emerson, Jacobs, and the person at the end of the tap kit, is at war, or wants to go to war
over "the truth". Then there is a counter group that includes Carr and Orwell who are trying to stop "our" group.
Everyone is in some sort of Guild to make trade goods, too.
The names don't make sense to me though, if we're in an Asian country. Why not have at least closer cultural names, rather than Jacobs or Orwell.
We probably will hit up against a wall until Illumination Day (which is only March 9th) when I assume a new stage of the game will open, possibly
revealing what product this is trying to sell. I'm not thinking its a movie anymore. Possibly it's for JJ Abram's show Revolution about when the whole
world loses power (or so the log line says). I'm wondering if maybe the show actually takes place after that, and energy is now regulated like it says
in this game? Otherwise I'm thinking its for a game of some sort (web based, or D&D book like). The final option, which I hate to think of, is for a
product that doesn't exist yet, and the person trying to sell it wants to prove to investors they have a fan base already. That means that if it
doesn't get funding, the game would end without any sort of resolution, which sucks.
