Other Worlds Austin Founder and Artistic Director Bears Fonte sits down across from Other Worlds Austin Founder and Artistic Director Bears Fonte.  Wait a minute, that’s Bears 2.0, a home-grown clone which we’ve kept under lock and key since he tried to program a Michael Bay retrospective.  In the wake of the threats of the end of humanity, and unable to find the cause, Bears figures it is time to check in with his evil counterpart.

On Tuesday May 24 the Other Worlds Austin Staff meeting was interrupted by an unknown force that possessed OWA Director of Operations, Courtney Hazlett. Courtney came to and the team huddled around Jordan's phone as the app filtered out all of the bullshit. They gasped in unison as the results flashed on the screen. HUMANITY ENDS ON JUNE 23rd 2016.

But who sent the message and how are they planning to end humanity?

A super-secret iPhone 10 prototype sits propped up in the middle of the table in the sparse interrogation room. The prototype serves as a host for the viral-like runaway A.I. that has been wreaking havoc in the Austin metro area. Known as Miri, the mega-advanced A.I. has eluded authorities, but not the OWA staff.
