Binary Domain

Binary Domain is a third-person shooter video game developed and published by Sega. The game is set in Tokyo in the year 2080 and features innovative AI technology. It was designed by Toshihiro Nagoshi, who created the Yakuza video game series.

In the early years of the 21st century, global warming has caused world wide flooding, leaving three quarters of the world's cities uninhabitable, forcing the world governments to build new cities above the waterlines, using the ruined cities as foundation, leaving them to rot. With millions dead, robots were used as the main labor force to create the new cities. The American-based Bergen company rose to dominate a very large majority of the world's robotic industries, making America the world superpower. The Amada Corporation in Japan tried to sue Bergen for stealing their technology in a patent dispute, which ended in failure since Bergen was too powerful. This was despite the fact that Amada was the first robotics company that created the first humanoid robot in 2047. This controversial lawsuit resulted in Bergen's control of the robotics market at 95%

In 2040, the world's economic concerns lead to the creation of the "New Geneva Convention" a new set of international laws: clause 21 banned research into robots that could pass for humans, called "Hollow Children". 150 countries have agreed to sign the convention into law. The International Robotics Technology Association, which was founded in 2040, created a global task-force called "Rust Crews" to deal with breaches of the convention, especially clause 21. In 2080, a Hollow Child attacked Bergen's headquarters in Detroit, Michigan, USA, apparently having previously had no idea that he was a robot himself.

Believing that robotics genius and founder of Amada corporation Yoji Amada created the Hollow Child, the IRTA sent a team of Rust Crew headed by Charles Gregory to Japan to find Amada and bring him in for questioning under orders from the UN Security Council.
