This post company is about to make its most dangerous delivery yet. Meet the characters you’ll use in Parcel to solve devious puzzles.
Ability: carries the box around, blocking lasers with it
Block visibly takes pride in his mundane job of carrying a box around. To date, he is the only person in the crew to actually wear the company outfit. He was raised by crash test dummies, so understandably he doesn’t speak much, but while other people do the talking, Block leads by example and is the embodiment of all the values that the courier service stands for.
Ability: magnetizes the box, demolishes robots
Magna was once an acrobat, but an accident with robots caused her to require an artificial spine and lose much of her mobility in the process. However, she re-trained herself as an engineer and combined her bionic spine with an industrial magnet, making herself capable of working as a scrap collector, a valued occupation within companies operating outside of virtual space.
Ability: hacks the system, altering the levels
The IT guy of the firm, Hackman has blurred the line between a human and a robot with the numerous self-made augmentations he has installed into himself. With his bionically enhanced cerebral hemispheres, he is armed with savant-like mathematical and verbal skills. Despite his occasional displays of unintentional creepiness, Hackman is loved and respected.
Ability: swaps places with others
The daughter of the Postpeople’s chief engineer, Porter spent her childhood playing with all the gadgets that her father made for her and her sister. Over time, she grew so fond of one of the inventions, the Chum Swapper 3000, that she started wearing it all the time and making a job out of her handy ability of delivering other people and goods to hard-to-reach locations.
