Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

When disaster struck humanity, even the rich found there weren't enough caretakers to tend to the sick and dying. The super-rich solved this problem by creating healthcare robots to fill the need. Business magnate Theseus Phidias, with his army of robotic nurses, was therefore able to survive decades after human civilization had ended. As he aged and decayed, he prolonged his life with prosthetics: first an artificial heart, then limbs, until finally there was nothing of his original body left. His new form, no longer bound by biological restraints, continued to evolve. Theseus grew in size and power, reaching superhuman proportions that were once reserved for the gods alone.

In becoming something more than human, he also became something less than human- leaving Death with no soul to harvest, and the alien with no biology to study. Even the curious crab was unsatisfied, seeing nothing in Theseus's gleaming chassis that resembled the Softshells of folklore.

We ain’t got no cities in Alabama ;)

The first (and maybe second) scenes are indeed set in Alabama (or thereabouts), somewhere near Mobile. The party has journeyed outside of the state for the third and fourth scenes.

This is the plant I guess. Nothing else means anything to me. I'll guess Alabama? It sounds like a cowboy city :D

Good guess! It’s definitely an American city with an affinity for cowboy boots and out-of-place classical architecture. Some more clues: the white plant in scene 1 is a carnivorous species with a limit range, and the type of statuary found in scene 2 is common to a particular region. Also note the object beneath the posh pig in scene 3 ;)

I don't know  much about US but I'll guess Las Vegas.
