Here is the announcement trailer of Anonymous;Code:
The synopsis of the story was also revealed:
The story begins on February 6, 2036 at 06:28:15, when an important place in Tokyo is destroyed. This happens due to a problem in 2036 when computers went on a rampage.
Because an even bigger problem is predicted to occur in 2038, the super computer Gaia creates another Earth using its Earth simulation program. That simulated Earth confirms what would happen in 2038. However, even though no humans were born in that simulation at first, when an Arecibo message was sent to the Earth simulation, humanity came into existence.
Although the researchers were overjoyed, the people within the Earth simulator also create a super computer of their own, and an Earth simulator now exists inside the Earth simulator. The researchers now question their own existence.
Not much is known about Anonymous;Code. Further information will be revealed at a later date.
