■ Story

A world where civilization has fallen, and is now contaminated by toxic fungi.

In the corner of a ruins that was once a factory, a lone robot awakens in a scrap yard.

After walking through the ruins, the robot comes across a lone girl named Toriko, sleeping and covered in toxic fungi.

A girl who is still young and frail.

The girl seemed contaminated, with mushrooms growing from her body. The robot rescues the weakened Toriko and looks after her.

However, the destroyed world is not an environment in which the girl can survive. To protect Toriko, you must create an isolated “Terrarium” environment where she can stay alive.

Helper Robot

void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium

A robot that, although disposed in a scrap yard, begins to unexpectedly develop a sense of self. While aimlessly exploring the ruins, he comes across Toriko, a girl covered in mushrooms. He appears to be a model that was once popular for home use.
