Inspired by speculative fiction and neo-noir, The Flatiron Hex is a peek inside a parallel world infected with intelligent viruses and paranoia. Set in NYORG, a city in the middle of a swamp, and told through puppets, The Flatiron Hex is the story of Wylie Walker, a contract shaman, who uses his unusual talents to troubleshoot and maintain NYORG’s interweb biotechnology.
Elements of the fantastic collide with the everyday to become evocative of a magical reality. Due to the haunted land and sentient mainframes, Wylie faces many occult adversaries. Storms constantly threaten to destroy NYORG, but a secret feature of the Flatiron building keeps the storms at bay, as long as the cloud-code is cracked and the correct ritual procedure is followed. Resulting in a blood-soaked comedic quest of redemption and sacrifice.
