The Unity Macroverse Malaysian Sci-Fi story is a large canvas that was created with the intention of inviting and engaging like-minded individuals, groups, organisations, etc., to participate and contribute to a world-building experience. The premise was created within the genre of Science- Fiction with the intention of encouraging interest in this area. This is a Community generated activity in the area of story telling and worldbuilding.
The premise of Science-Fiction is coupled with and Alternate Timeline that goes back to the 13th Century and is centred around Asia. The fundamental “what if” in UNITY relates to the Treasure Ships of the Ming Dynasty which is further elaborated in the following UNITY wiki.
The central characters in UNITY are Asian but is focused within the region of South East Asia. We commenced our story telling of the UNITY Universe through Graphic Novels. The intention was to allow an easier flow into the story canvas that we were building. Most of the major characters were introduced in the first three Graphic Novels through Marooned, these were followed up with the other five titles.
As the Graphic Novels progressed we began to introduce other story medium with lowered barriers to enter as we saw that Community was beginning to insist on participating in growing the story canvas. We eventually ended up with Micro Stories, and eventually to the Short Stories. The growth of the canvas has been tremendous that we now have all the stories tied into a series of Novels spanning over three books (for now!!).
