About This Game
"Half a century into the future, mankind's world is riven and in a state of great social, political, and economic strain... After the end of the horrific pandemic that haunted the early twenties, big pharma became stronger than ever seen before. Medical research thrived and allowed for a multitude of tech advancements, but healthcare prices skyrocketed, causing mass inflation and shifting the world's economy... As a result, cryptocurrencies grew in popularity and eventually gained enough momentum to replace other monetary systems across the globe... Greed, hatred, envy, and panic then fueled the fires of war time after time, leaving the world scarred and broken. The U.N. has fallen and the war on terror has failed. Civilization is slowly collapsing in on itself... Now, most people cannot afford their basic needs. Society is fragmented and has dissolved back into a rigid caste division. Crime is at an all-time high and poverty is the new norm. Each day that passes, exploitation of the Earth's resources continues and pollution intensifies, making life even more unbearable... Humanity is in the darkest place of its entire existence... A dark place where you exist."
