A sightseeing adventure where you get to push a lot of buttons, oh and you should probably read this memo:

Welcome to Voltark , prime meridian in our system's strategic  Proton Fuel Cell Network!  As part of y̴o̴u̵r̴ ̷daily activities during your work rotation it is imperative to follow these instructions to maintain industry e̸f̸f̴i̸c̷i̴e̷n̷c̶y̴ ̵and liveware optimization. Failure to comply will result in immediate termination and suspension of all family unit benefits:

  1.   Keep hydrated, calm and c̦o̺o̡p̬e͕r̗a̘t̳i̟v̖e̡ ̖at all times. Remember to u̢şe͜ protective equipment and follow all OSHA safety protocols!

  2. All Oxidizing Proton Pump Pylons must be kept operational at all times! Your first task upon deployment is to initiate the master control panel to activate the Wireless Pump Network. An o͇p̧t̺i̭mͅa̬l̙ ̬distance of 5 feet from an  OPPP is recommended to reduce the risk of electric shock.

  3.  To engage an OPPP and the WPN remember the Simple-5 Button® combination: Button N#1 arms the Oxidizing Auger. Button N#2 engages the Torque and take-up of the A͙u̜g̰e͍r̟ ̗t̡o͙ begin Comminution. Button N#3 activates the Proton Draw Pillar. Button N#4 starts the Wireless Pump t̸r̸a̴n̴s̴m̶i̵s̵s̴i̷o̴n̸ ̸ through the Isopach. And most important of all; Button N#5 sends the all clear signal to your Geosector’s Proton Reserve.

  4.  In case of failure of the Wireless Pump Network while u̵s̷i̸n̵g̸ ̷the master control panel, manually activate all the OPPPs in your ǵe̓ós͆e̾c̓t̛o͐r̚ ̄ via the auxiliary control panels located at the base of an OPPP, remember to follow the Simple-5 Button® combination. If reduced visibility is present due to climatic conditions follow the p̶a̵t̴h̵ ̴of the electric voltage arc to the next OPPP in the Isopach.

  5.  Once ăg͛a͝i͆n͊, all Oxidizing Proton Pump Pylons must be kept o̸p̵e̴r̶a̴t̶i̴o̶n̴a̴l̶ ̸at all times!

I activated all the pumps I think and went to the giant ball of electricity. Is there an ending?

Hey! Not at the moment, it's more of a permanent vacation place haha. I am working on one tho :)

Great fun :)

Oh wow, didn't think somebody was going to climb the gigantic pyres, nice job!! Haha glad you made a friend :) , they're very curious creatures and albeit an accidental electrical zap or two they're harmless lol

This was such a great experience, thank you for making this! I'm not sure if I saw all there was to see, but I truly enjoyed playing through it. The atmosphere, music, and sound design were all fantastic.  I ended up walking deep into the desert, until the suns were behind me. Stumbling upon that golden sea was a nice surprise :)

Thank you very much!! So glad you found the ocean :) Just remembered I forgot to add the waves sounds :p oops haha, I'll patch it in soon. Did you find the weird electrical creatures in the trees? They're harmless but curious litte creatures haha :)
