Imagine a world without adults …
Civilization ended the day the satellites fell out of the sky. Global extinction followed. Following the falling sky, adults over the age of twenty-one died off from a mysterious illness. The world economy collapsed, manufacturing stopped, civilization crumbled. Those left behind, everyone under adulthood, lost electricity and transportation. Without rudimentary life skills, the generation that followed adapted to a culture revolving around video gaming as a way to survive. They used real-world situations to build a new form of government that meant gamers ruled. Generations following the extinction-level event learned about the Old Ones as cautionary tales to scare their offspring. Younglings learned through following the rules of the game. Open-World is a dangerous place with Bosses and Sub-bosses and Mid-bosses ready to put gamers into Extra Life.
