D.D.U.S.B. is a cyberpunk action-thriller that explores themes of transhumanism and the human condition. Set entirely within the confines of a small basement, its doomed occupants are left asking how much their pride and integrity are worth in the end, when they’ve sacrificed everything just to hold on to them. Two hackers battle the system in an uncaring world, exposing the machinations of mega-corporations that control the masses with tyrannical authority. So far, they've kept below the radar with petty cyberspace heists, but they know this accomplishes little.
A sleazy criminal and a confused android arrive at the hatchway to their circuit-laden warren, and a glorious opportunity follows. A chance to make a real difference. A miniscule chance, one that will certainly cost them everything; it's surely better than doing nothing. Isn't it?
