The Becoming is the first installment in the Reflux series of games. It tells the story of Frank Corwin, a man who is running from the law after being framed with the murder on his best friend. Using a cyperpunk theme, he can enter a digital world know as The Verse through his computer. There he becomes Flux, a superhero who is able to morph into different forms. One of his tasks is to infiltrate a Hong Kong base for a company called WorldPerfect along with some friends, but the covert mission is not as simply as it seems.
The game is presented as a comic book of twenty pages. By clicking the panels, players can follow the narration from the characters' perspective, view digital video sequences or interact directly. Additional content and background information can be read in folders near the bottom of the screen.
