The ROSECODE story is one of the fall’s most ambitious and unusual ICO’s. The project contains milestones for an e-book, a game, and a movie, set 250 years in Earth’s future. Characters include a ghost trapped in a video game, an AI downloaded into a human clone, a 23rd century computer programmer, and more.

But the project seeks to do more than entertain. ROSECODE will be the world’s first open source creative franchise.
It asks the question:“What if creative projects worked the same way as open source software?”
Every science fiction fan is familiar with the concept of “franchises.” Marvel, DC, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica. Take your pick. These are our modern myths — the stories we return to again and again.
But they are not ours. A giant corporation can, if it wishes, sue you for your choice of Halloween costume. You may attend conventions or write fan fiction, but in the end your work belongs to someone else.

ROSECODE uses the power of Creative Commons licensing to forge a new paradigm: a shared mythos, a consensual creative universe where anyone is free to invent, tell stories, build games, or film a movie — for fun or for profit. What if you and your collaborators had a built-in audience for new work, and a built-in cast of characters? ROSECODE aims to bring together writers, illustrators, programmers, and others to build a new shared reality.
