Mission Narrative

The British Library, situated in London, England, is one of the largest libraries in the world. In the future, it is purchased by a corrupt communication and security company called Val-Tech.

 

Intel suggests that they have used the library as a front and Val-Tech has repurposed its underground book archives into a high-tech research facility. Sophia Bailey, a controversial AI researcher, has been spotted multiple times walking in and out of the premises. Your trusted source says that she has been funded by Val-Tech to develop an experimental military AI robot. 

 

The player's goal is to infiltrate the library and retrieve the robot along with its schematics before it gets into the wrong hands!
