Occabot takes place in a steampunk world. The occabot plant is processed into a putty you press onto the forehead. It interacts with the brain and glows. It's exhilarating, but costly. Greg is hooked. His battle to quit is out of control. Joined by an anarchist, a capitalist, a mercenary, and an heiress, he wages war against the machine.
