Indie Spotlight: System Error #1

A story about a confused robot that's woken up in a world that's not how the same as it was before it went into hibernation mode.

System Error #1


When tour guide robot ITTO wakes ready to take on a new day handing out leaflets, it's confused to find the world was not how it left it.

With a failing power core, ITTO sets off across a decrepit London in an effort to find out what's happened.

The comic also has a web series that is set parallel to the main story of System Error.

Why you should read/buy

The standout parts of System Error are the gorgeous splash pages. There are a few of them and every one is full of details that give you pause for a bit.

After the first few pages, it's quite light on text so the art has to shine to make up for that, and it really does shine!

  • It's a cute little robot in a post-apocalyptic world.
  • Gorgeous splash pages showing a London in ruins.
  • A parallel webcomic is available so you can get more of that little robot.
