Mr.Snortoose and the Machine Childrens' Machine

In a world missing all history, the man with a single memory is king. Unfortunately for Mr. Snortoose, his one existing memory disappears whenever he needs to recall it. The community around him - a buncha hollow know-nothin machine children - is growing restless for the past, and the machine they are tirelessly building is threatening unspeakable futures.


Corrupting and misinterpreting text from old newspapers, out-dated medical textbooks, and a couple of well known fables, Mr. Snortoose and the Machine Children’s Machine is an absurd nostalgia retelling a history that never really happened.
