Five minutes to midnight is my next large project that I’m working on. It’s about a futuristic steam punk mechanical city that’s so advanced that many of their aspects of living have resorted back to the stone age.
Everyone worships the giant clock tower that oversees the city which powers the entire village by turning gears connected to every building. As the clock approaches midnight, the villagers take their turns cranking the clock backwards by slowing down the inevitable. For once the tower strikes midnight, not even the mystic gear tower can keep open the unstable time bubble which will collapse in on everything that resides within its universe.
