Johnny Reboot - Story synopsis

Johnny Reboot has agoraphobia. The loss of his mom (M*ther is censored?) during a war to defeat Morrigan, The Phantom Virus, lead him to isolating himself from his family.
Unable to deal with the grief, his perception of reality began to twist, it wasn't long before he feared the outside world.
He hides the truth from his family, showing them a tough exterior, even coming across as cocky at times.
Rarely taking visitors besides his brother Percy, yet always hoping someone comes by, Johnny is a prisoner of a self made cage.

The game will begin with Johnny's home destroyed by a virus attack, forcing him to flee his only haven. He'll have to explore the world he fears to save his family from a revived Morrigan.

Agoraphobia, Greek for a fear of 'gathering places', is an anxiety disorder characterized by perceiving certain environments as dangerous.
Typically a sufferer fears leaving a safety zone, often one's own home, and doing so can lead to severe panic attacks.
The phobia can intensify to a point where a 'fight or flight'-reaction ensues due to a non-existent danger and leaving your safe haven becomes completely unthinkable.

The story of Johnny Reboot is very personal to me, because it is based on a time in my life where I suffered from Agoraphobia, and I am wanting to use this game as a way to show everyone that has Agoraphobia and other Psychological disorders that anything is possible in life, you just gotta put your foot forward and continue.
