Bunkercore is a post-apocalyptic Science Fiction series by Andrew Seiple.

Wynne, the protagonist, wakes up as an amnesiac disembodied mind in control of a near-ruined military base and its nanotech tools. His superior promises him his memories back if he manages the base.

Unfortunately, this means fighting tooth-and-nail against nano-goo-infested monsters, cultist marauders and building safety codes... And the boss isn't looking all that trustworthy, either...


Bunkercore contains examples of:

  • A Dungeon Is You - a rare sci-fi example.
  • Grey Goo - various nanotech-infected beasts wander as monsters in the wilderness.
  • No OSHA Compliance - subverted; the reason Wynne has to design his base with a clear path to his core is because hardcoded health-and-safety routines. He tries to rules-lawyer it when he can - for example, he must provide an elevator to the next floor, but it doesn't specifically say that it must be large enough for a human...

How well does it match the trope?
