There’s More to Life Than Boxes: a fable

Robot Boy

Robot_BoyRobot Boy has no memory of his life before making boxes.  It is all he has ever known.  And, as far as his memory extends, the only person with whom he has ever had contact is The Overseer.

Lately he has been wondering if there is more to life than boxes.  He has reserved some memory for dreaming but must keep this hidden from The Overseer.  He is locked away every evening where he sighs and dreams of the world outside of the factory.

Robot Boy has no recollection of his ‘Made-Day’, but he estimates himself to be around seven.

I lecture in creative writing, games and education. I write. I make the odd game. I work with the odd school to make learning more like playing a game...
