I just woke up on the outskirts of a large city. I have nothing more than my clothes and my cell phone (which's battery had run out). I investigate the situation and come to a terrible conclusion - I am all alone in a deserted city. It's not destroyed, however. Buildings are fine, no glass is broken, shops are full of products and no corpses are lying around. And yet, everyone is gone. I took a laptop from one of the shops, but strangely, it doesn't turn on. The batteries are dead and the electric lines are cold, so I went on beyond the city. Some hours later I find an old solar power plant a few miles away that seemed to be pumping. I connected my laptop and accessed the internet, but what I found was even more surprising; The whole world population disappeared withoud a trace.
This is where you come in.
I have at least three questions that I want to answer, but currently I'm unable to because of my limited resources;
- Why did humanity vanish?
- How did it happen without any damage to the infrastructure?
- How come I'm the only one left?
And no, I'm fairly sure this is not a Matrix-esque simulation or some alien experiment. I want to find the most plausible solution to this conundrum that would work in the real world. In the meantime I'll try to not lose my sanity.
Wish me luck!
