Back Story

This is the backstory so far, to explain what the state of the world is in, who is the bad guy and why he is bad. Whilst I personally wanted some mega awesome story for the game where the line between good and bad is blurred, however, to do this would be to go way out of our scope and would fall outside the skillset of the rest of the team. Which, in the end, would take away from the game, and the story, itself.

Once upon a time, in a world not dissimilar to your own, there was a terrible war between man and machine. It all started when a professor, Moriarty Wulf, combined his hungering greed with a dangerous obssesion. He had been working on a way to create artificial intelligence for the army, but having no success. So much so, that the government was about to stop funding.

Frustrated, he was pushed to the edge and in his madness he decided to do something unpredictable, instead of creating artificial intelligence, he used his own –putting his brain inside a machine. Theoperation was a success, none the less, the government halted their funding claiming that this professor was insane. Defeated, humilated, the professor went into hiding, and that was the last anyone had seen of the Wulf.

It wasn’t until ten years later, when professor wulf stepped out of the shadows, that the military could see the full realised potential of his ideas. As the Wulf was no longer alone, with him was an army of robots! And so the war began, it was an even fight for the most part but Wulf was more of a tactician than one to try brute force and poisoned the one thing humanity could not live without – air. Though it was a unique poison, one that didn’t kill people, instead it drove them mad. The war was almost loss, with most people having evacuated or been captured, few remained to fight. Those who did banded together as guerilla soldiers in their own city.This is where our story begins….
