In the middle of the Ocean of Freedom, there exists an island, developed by a secret team of technologists and builders as a Virtual Environment for Recreational Therapy (VERT), which was later abandoned by its builders for unknown reasons, leaving a robot and three mini bots they had designed and placed on the island to fend for themselves. The robot, called Bloom, is having a tough time finding a way to get off the island, alongside the three smaller mini bots called Ripple, Sparkle and Echo, also abandoned on the same island and dependent on Bloom to lead them to freedom.
Called Mental Island, the island is in the main part made up of a scenic park with a lake (Lake Ula) at one corner and a building called the Mind Bank at the other end. The Mind Bank contains an Art Gallery environment in the middle, flanked by a Gym environment and a Memory Room on either side. Mental Island is patrolled by a quarrelsome Circuit Chicken programmed to annoy Bloom and its little friends through anti-social behaviour. The Circuit Chicken’s constant harassment and bullying often leads to the mini bots getting demoralized and demobilized, unable to keep up with Bloom as it moves round the island in search of access cards. When this happens, Bloom can resuscitate the mini bots by picking the most ideal out of five options of responses to the complaints they give. This is important as the portal that grants access to Lake Ula would not open unless all the minibots are with Bloom when it is activated. Mental Island is also surrounded by an Ocean of Freedom on which Bloom and the mini bots must travel to escape the island, but they first must gather sufficient access cards to open the sequence of portals that would lead them to freedom.
