SPIRAL: Shreds of the Future by Gigi Funcis and Lorenzo Acquaviva
Kaleb is one of the few survivors on Earth, after a mysterious and destructive event. He lives in an underground bunker with the only company of a digital assistant called Evelyn, programmed with the voice of his missing wife. Through odor simulation devices, faded memories and false hopes, Kaleb will shed light on what happened to the Earth and - more importantly for himself - what happened to his wife. Will he see her again?
