The Motoko Files

Welcome to the world of The Motoko Files!



Meet Major Motoko, a soul sculpted from the nexus of technology and humanity. In a city pulsating with neon lights and digital shadows, she embarks on a journey that is as much about tactical prowess against cyber threats as it is a deeply personal quest for identity. Motoko's story unfolds in a New Shinjuku that has emerged from the ruins of war, reborn through the symbiotic fusion of flesh and cybernetics.

In this future, technology is not a mere extension of self but the very fabric of being. As Motoko navigates a landscape where cybernetic enhancements are the norm, she confronts an enigmatic entity, the Platinum Prophet, whose revelations challenge the very nature of consciousness. The story weaves a rich tapestry of ethical dilemmas, existential questions, and the eternal human struggle for meaning and connection.

"The Motoko Files - Cyber Prophecy" is more than just a nod to the cyberpunk genre; it is a narrative that resonates with the questions and possibilities of our current technological era. It projects them into a future that is both imaginative and unsettlingly plausible. With its blend of action, introspection, and visionary technology, this novella is a must-read for fans of cyberpunk and the "Ghost in The Shell" series, and for anyone intrigued by the intersection of technology with the human spirit.

Restore from Cloud - The World of The Motoko Files

In a shadow-laced future where the line between human and machine blurs to obscurity, Major Motoko faces her most personal and perilous mission yet. Following a ruthless cyber attack, her cyber-connected brain is left fragmented, a puzzle with missing pieces. As fragments of memories flicker and fade, the Major is thrust into a race against time to piece together her shattered past. But in a world where memories can be manipulated and trust is a commodity as rare as truth, the quest for restoration will lead her down a path lined with betrayal, hidden agendas, and a darkness that could engulf her very soul. Join Major Motoko as she confronts the ghosts of her past to secure a future that hangs in the balance—her identity, her sanity, and the fate of those she dares to call allies on the line...
