“It's great to be 22. It’s like, totally ideal. If we could all be frozen at a certain age, that would be the place to stop: bodies at their peak, fast minds, glorious youth. We could get rid of all the saggy bits, avoid all the difficult times, we could keep well away from death.”
Assisted Living investigates a world where this age group is kept separate from the rest of humanity and the various issues that arise from this.
Is this really the ‘ideal age’? What would the world look like with no elderly, no children, no death? And is anyone else hearing voices?
The members of Long Cloud have worked with Jo Randerson and Aaron Cortesi to create a weird tale that is in equal part Greek Myth, Sci-Fi and The Sims. Assisted Living is an outlandish, playful and sometimes accurate guide to leading a full life.
