Like a lot of games out nowadays, Enslaved takes place in a post-apocalyptic future. You play as Monkey, a muscle bound, acrobatic man who fights to survive in this harsh world. He must have screwed up along the way because the game begins with him restrained in a metal pod inside of a giant airship full of slaves. A young girl named Trip manages to free herself from her pod and during the mayhem that happens afterwards, Monkey also escapes. Trip and Monkey manage to leave the airship but as the name of the game implies, Trip makes Monkey her slave using a headband that controls people. If Monkey doesn’t listen to Trip’s orders, she can inflict pain or kill him using a device that controls the slave headband. The headband is also attuned to Trip’s heart beat so if she dies, Monkey dies too. Trip promises Monkey that if he can get her home, she will free him.
