We found the ultimate renewable energy source: ourselves.
I’m a perp. When I got older and actually cared about history, I found out that wasn’t a name people were proud to have a few decades ago, but most people today are perps.
It’s short for ‘perpetual.’ We wear collectors that harness the power created by our movement. It’s so normal now it’s hard to imagine a world without them.
When humanity exhausted the resources of Earth, we had to resort to harnessing energy in a different way. And of course, the worst kinds of people will find ways to exploit and cheat. They are called siphoners, and that’s what they do, steal the energy we work so hard for.
My plan is to collect as much as I can and make the trip to Mecha, the best-paying bank in North America. At this rate, I’ll never be able to get mom and Anise the care they need; there’s no cure for Ohm’s disease, but that won’t stop me from doing everything I can to help them.
I can’t let anything get in my way: no relationships, no selfish upgrades, nothing.
Maybe you care too. Want to hear more about my story?

Perpetual is the first-person account of Nash as he struggles to survive in a world that is falling apart. Power is so hard to find or create now that people now wear collectors to turn their everyday movements into energy that they can sell back to energy banks.
Nash meets mysterious stranger, Shae, in a safehaven power-collecting park. They stumble upon something that will change both of their lives forever, if they can trust each other.
