Two centuries have passed since humanity spread to the stars. The future is bleak and bitter.
One one side, the United Nations desperately fights to retain its control over empires among the stars. On the other side is the rival OutReach Colonial Association [ORCA], grim, outnumbered, almost suicidally valiant. Their war tears apart planets.
And in the middle, a lone soldier, the last of ORCA’s legendary Butchers, returns home…only to find that there truly is no rest for the wicked. A 2D Role-Playing Game set in a blighted world.
Game design and story by Yudhanjaya Wijeratne. Music by Keiron Furber.
