CHARACTERS

Resisters

What remains of Old Man’s world. The last ones standing, the last to move away and resist the pull of the Yellow Mouth. Walking the Walk. Day after day. Feeding on the Eats inside the bones in their path. Repeating words. gathered and preserved as meaning for all things past and present. Repeating less and less each next day. It and Its father, the last archivists of mankind. Man-kind-of…

Sitters

Resisters whose hearts have given up. Dead before death, itself. No will left to continue the struggle of its routine, no feet left to walk theWalk of resistance.

Answering instead the call of the Yellow Mouth, ready to no longer just take part but rather become a part. Yellow-charmed. Passive lone figures, carried with the current, waiting to be swallowed by the waves. Unless another Resister catches them first and snatches the feast from the swallowing pit, for a little longer, anyway. For ‘a Sitter’ eats and moist are like no other, fresh and full of warmth and knowledge residue.

Half-Deads

Resisters whose has brains died but their body lived on. Mindless. Sleepless. Endless. Man-like beings with Addings that refuse to give up, grasping for life, still moving away from Yellow. Feeding the movement with anything in the way, be it bone, plastic or flesh. Weak and slow at daylight, half-deads own the night. For the refuse to stop, dead but not in Yellow.

The rotting in their heads carries an effect that both frightens and excites all Resisters that encounter it.

CAUSE

The world of “It Remains” is shaped by vestiges of а fallen civilization - humanity’s plastic debris junkyard. Set in beyond dystopia, appearance and characters in this universe are inspired by real-life environmental issues such as plastics and industrial pollution. For that reason, we plan to spread awareness and promote community-voted causes, committed to finding plastic alternatives, better plastic waste management, and provide support for the homeless. Become a holder and help us pick the right projects to support

FICTION OR PREDICTION?

It Remains is inspired by Global Issues. It presents the hypothetical aftermath of humanity’s current trajectory.

The author, Vasil traveled the world photographing homeless people at environmentally polluted locations, and the artist, Ed turned those into the visuals.

The long-term goal is to raise awareness for social causes like: Plastic alternatives & Homelessness.

The homeless are the true Resisters of modern society, existing on the outskirts of the system, forgotten and forsaken. Ever-growing, the issue of homelessness is largely due to poor mental health. In a profit-driven high-tech world, less and less care is given to our mental health. If the trend continues, the numbers of homeless Resisters will continue to increase.

But it is not too late, yet… Through engaged awareness and collective creativity, we believe that the worst can be avoided.

For It Remains is not just about the hideous, the lost, the rotten. It is about finding beauty in the hideous. Changing the world through the power of dreaming.
