Plot

It's the year 2653. In the last few centuries, technology advanced exponentially and everyone had a fair chance of playing God. With help from the RepRap project, a free desktop 3d printer, which gave anyone power to build their own weapon factory or genetic laboratory on their own property. Mechanic parts or genetic modifications turned from a fashion option into a requirement for daily survival.

Despite their combined efforts, the world's governments couldn't prevent the world from plunging into chaos. The Earth has become a battlefield, split between 7 factions fighting for dominion over the ravaged landscape. The apocalypse is here and only the strong ones will surpass it.
