"They look silly, don't they? In those big bumbling heads. We even put a smile on their face to let people know how happy they are."

When gifted young inventor Aleksander journeys to the hallowed city of Robotika, he is thrilled by the technological marvels of the Steam Age. And thanks to the Industrials, those strange boxheaded, robot servants, everyone is able to laugh and play all day long.

But when Aleksander meets "Daisy," a shy young robot-maid, he begins to suspect that Robotika is more than it seems and that the people's newfound happiness may come at a terrible price.

Together the two friends will discover the truth behind Robotika's shining facade, and go on to lead an Industrial Revolution of their own.
