On another note, I'm a bit behind the times, what's this new profile pic Jackho?
It's from the cover of I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream, specifically of the PC game adaption from 1995. It's about a super computer named AM (I think therefore I am) who basically becomes skynet and nukes the planet, but it keeps 5 people alive to play with, giving them immortality so he can torture them forever.
In the 1967 short story it's based on (you can read it here, it's worth a few minutes of your time) AM doesn't directly interact with the characters too much, but the game fleshes out each character's background much more and has AM create a scenario for for you to play through as each of the five survivors, each one designed to subtly torture them based on their weaknesses and regrets.
It has aged and it's balls to get running on today's computers, but it's awesome and I'd love to see a remake, monkey island special edition style (or even better: telltale's walking dead style. I can dream).
