Magnes Omni

A strategy game based on the Antikythera Mechanism.

Once upon a time was told a story of a marvelous island. The founders were half god and half-human. They created a utopian civilization and became a great naval power. They had eyes to control magnetism, hands to control gravity and legs to control antigravity. Their home was made up of concentric islands separated by wide moats and linked by a canal that penetrated to the center. The lush islands contained gold, silver, and other precious metals and supported an abundance of rare, exotic wildlife. There was a great capital city on the central island. This city controlled the time dimension.
There are many theories about where this island was—in the Mediterranean, off the coast of Spain, even under what is now Antarctica. Its story had been passed down by poets, priests, and others. About 3,600 years ago, a massive volcanic eruption devastated the island. At the time, a highly advanced society disappeared suddenly at about the same time as the volcanic eruption. There is one legend that tells a story about a moral, spiritual people who lived in a highly advanced, utopian civilization. But they became greedy, petty, and "morally bankrupt," and the gods became angry because the people had lost their way and turned to immoral pursuits. As punishment, he says, the gods sent "one terrible night of fire and earthquakes" that caused the island to sink into the sea. Long-time after this devastation, one half-broken mechanism was found, nearby the Greek Island of Antikythera.
Some say that there was an alien invasion that has distorted the geomagnetic field of the Earth and has caused a severe gravitational instability, that sank this island. One other legend says that there is somewhere a parallel universe, the «Fourth Dimension».In a dystopian future was created the Magnes Omni, a star map simulator which is a tracking mechanism of a lost galaxy system that can link and control the magnetic field of the planets in this dimension. The Magnes Omni is the missing part of the half-broken Mechanism of Antikythera, with a mysterious function and unknown consequences. It has magnets, small black holes, and cogs, and operates with magnetism, gravity, antigravity and time. Will the mechanism help someone to discover how operates, to affect the geomagnetic field and to reconstruct the lost civilization?
