SellFable is a machine noir universe that thrives on the energy of its inhabitants. Like an ink stain, it slowly creeps into our world, tainting systems and often leaving evidence of its existence: Machine Relics, Lost Mechanic Orphans, SFC System Bugs or fragments of machine language poetry.

A possessed solitary person called The Archivist collects and arranges archival materials about the SellFable Universe. He travels around the world to research items  linked to SellFable. Evidence has been found on the internet and offline in cities all over the world. These so called SellFable Machine Relics can be found in any location, shape, or form… you will recognise one when you see one.

The information that is being found can take on almost any shape, including illuminated engravings, drawings, paintings, installations, machine language poems, documents, letters, audio recordings and videos.

SellFable holds the Archivist captive ever since an incident a long time ago. Some kind of code, a digital virus was somehow uploaded into his brain. He is ever since searching for proof, but also for a way into SellFable.
