FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ghent, Belgium, 12 December 2012
More than 3 years after their previous title, Tale of Tales release a new videogame for PC and Mac. The program can be purchased and downloaded from the newly designed website:
"Life on an orbital station can get very lonely," designer-engineers A.
Harvey and M. Samyn suggest, "The pay is decent and the views are spectacular. But to spend so much time without human contact in a freezing vacuum surrounded by indifferent technology can come to haunt one at some point. This is what originally inspired us to build the first Intergalactic Holocom Transmitter."
Today S. Thala LLC is presenting the newest model in an already successful range: the Intergalactic Holocom Transmitter II. Next to the obvious improvements in performance and reductions in volume and weight, each IHTII unit now ships with an exclusive version of the T. Beach projector, inspired by the legendary work of 20th century Earth novelist Marguerite Duras, including the critically acclaimed U. Bridge French café simulation that enables cross-galactic communication with other IHT units of any generation.
The T. Beach software simulates a stretch of North Atlantic coast from the planet Earth. The purpose of this virtual environment is taking walks for indeterminate amounts of time. The program comes with two bodies dedicated to this purpose: a male and female avatar modeled after the original inhabitants of the planet. The simulation includes lifelike gulls and waves, a sea breeze that you can almost feel, and a convenient interface to set the time of day.
Access to the U. Bridge grid is integrated in the boardwalk of this custom version of T. Beach. Simply walking through a door, fires up the powerful C-Beam transmitters of the IHTII, instantly connecting the astronaut to one of the many others on the grid. There is no need to worry about who that person really is as the program ensures that their representation corresponds to the subconscious expectations of the user.
The patented We-Know-What-You-Need algorithms have been fine-tuned through rigorous testing in systems where legislation is most lenient.
The IHTII is safe. It is healthy. It provides mental and physical equilibrium and thus benefits both employees and employers.
The two avatars provided with this model have agreed to all terms of the standard bill of cybernetic life forms and are willing and fully capable of performing under the various emotional conditions that the user may desire to invoke. They have admitted to a certain preference for the amorous but leave the ultimate choice up to the user.
"We are actually a little bit curious," admit Femme and Homme, coyly looking away from us, "We can perform many actions on our own. But there's nothing like being controlled by an astronaut. Especially one separated by such great distances from any of their kind. Sometimes we feel like we're the ones taking care of them instead of the other way around."
