The original concept of 2014 stems directly from the team members’ interest in George Orwell’s novel, 1984. Inspired by the totalitarian society portrayed in the story and frightened by what individuals’ life would be like under the tyranny of a dictator like the Big Brother, we want to take a look at the story from a different perspective by focusing on the Big Brother, who acts as a mysterious symbol rather than an appearing character in the original work. We also discovered our interest in expanding the worldview of 1984 and seeking its possibility in a more distant future. The result of such inspirations became Twenty Fourteen, the continuation of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, set in 30 years after the end of the novel.
