Set in an overnight suburbia, Dansomaton takes its moves from a game based on fights between live remote-controlled human-androids. Each won challenge allows players to customize their Dansomaton by purchasing upgrade cards of consciousnesses and emotions simulators. Richi, 25 years old beginner player, distressed by his loneliness, sees in Dansomatons the possibility to build some kind of relationship, even if not human. Meeting Dedra, a long-winded player, opens the opportunity to win the upgrade card Prisma. Richi is ready to set off with his new android friend, but Prisma seems not of the same advice.
