In The Ember Institute, your character can be a man or a woman and they’ve found themselves without either a job or a place to live. You are forced to live with a friend and their family. You manage to find some kind of job with a strange employment agency. The company somehow seems dishonest and corrupt and you have to determine what is going on and how it all affects your relationships. You have entered the Ember Institute and must determine how your life will proceed from here!
